It’s hard to believe the BMW 7-series is turning 40 years old! To celebrate this milestone BMW are planning a special edition which will be limited to just 200 units. This car will be unveiled at the Frankfurt motor show this September, the Edition 40 Jahre (40th Anniversary Edition or, literally translated, Edition 40 Years) will be built according to customer specifications and wishes. Here in Europe, all engines and drivetrains will be available but common to all 200 units is the special paint! All cars will be finished in either Frozen Silver Metallic or in Petrol Mica Metallic, the latter being a color that celebrates the rich heritage of blue hues in BMW’s history.
All will have high-gloss black Shadow Line trim and all will come with 20-inch V-spoke wheels from BMW’s Individual program. Inside it will be nothing short of sublime with two leather combinations on offer, either Smoke White/Cohiba or Smoke White/Black. The headliner will be finished in Smoke White alcantara and the wood décor will be Smoke Brown or Piano Black depending on your choice of leather upholstery. There will be Edition 40 badges inside and out, with the specially designed anniversary logo appearing on the B-pillars, rocker panels, wood trim, headrests, and pillows. This will be one special piece of kit so if you are lucky enough to get your name on one, do let us know!
