To celebrate 40 years of its existence, the 7 Series get a new special edition and limited model. The BMW 7 Series Edition 40 Jahre models are being produced in a limited quantity of 200 units and tailored to individual customer specifications at the BMW Dingolfing plant, which has served as the birthplace of these luxury sedans since as far back as 1977.
The new model features exclusive exterior and interior design features and will be making its world debut at the 2017 Frankfurt International Motor Show (IAA).
There is a choice of two variants – The exclusive BMW Individual colour Frozen Silver metallic and the BMW Individual body colour Petrol Mica metallic which takes up on the tradition of discreet and elegant shades of blue used on the bodywork of BMW luxury sedans. Both colors offer unique iridescent effects and a unique impression of depth. The colors, which are applied in a particularly elaborate process, come in conjunction with the M Aerodynamics Package, the BMW high-gloss Shadow Line and 20-inch BMW Individual light alloy wheels in a V spoke design. A further exterior design feature is the edition signet designed exclusively for the model anniversary and located on the B pillar coverings and on the door sills.
Inside the edition models you can find the BMW Individual full leather trim Merino fine grain in the colour combination Smoke White/Cohiba or Smoke White/Black with hand woven piping in Smoke White matching perfectly with the BMW Individual Alcantara Smoke White roof liner. Moreover, BMW 7 Series Edition 40 Jahre models are all fitted with comfort seats both at the front and rear. BMW Individual interior trim strips are offered either in a black piano lacquer finish or in the high-grade wood finish Eucalyptus straight-grained Smoke Brown high gloss, depending on the upholstery colour.
Within the area of the instrument panel on the front seat passenger side they boast an edition signet. The exclusive flair is rounded off by two Smoke White comfort cushions from the BMW Individual manufactory, which, like the headrests, also bear the edition signet, as well as by floor mats in Smoke White with either black or Cohiba brown edge binding respectively.
