BMW’s 7 Series limo is celebrating its 40th anniversary with a strictly limited 40 Jahre (40 Years) Edition capped at a highly-collectable 200 units globally, and Australia will get to join the party with just four 40 Jahre Edition cars bound for our shores.
Allocation of the limited edition cars will be split across three 7 Series grades, with two 740i-based 40 Years editions, one 750i and one flagship M760Li variant to be offered.
Special inclusions on the limited-build cars include 20-inch V-spoke light alloy wheels, metallic silver paint, smoke white and black leather upholstery, black interior trim with '7 40 Jahre' logos, smoke white Alcantara headliner and '7 40 Jahre' logo stitched on the headrests.
The 740i and 750i 40 Jahre package also includes additional features that are already standard on the M760Li including rear comfort seats, M Sport package, and M Sport brakes, as well as an upgraded Bowers and Wilkins audio system for the 750i.
Engines are unchanged compared to the regular production models with a 240kW/450Nm turbocharged six-cylinder engine for the 740i, a 4.4-litre twin-turbocharged V8 engine in the 750i good for 330kW and 650Nm, while the M760Li tops out at a spectacular 448kW and 800Nm from its 6.6-litre twin-turbo V12 engine.
All models are equipped with an eight-speed automatic transmission that sends power to the rear wheels in the 740i and 750i and to all four wheels in the M760Li.
The 40 Jahre Edition models are priced from $267,500 before on-road costs for the 740i (up by $39,400 compared to the regular model), $336,500 for the 750i (a $42,500 step-up) and $443,500 for the M760Li, or $18,500 more than its regular counterpart.
The 7 Series 40 Jahre Edition is set to begin arriving in Australia from late 2017.
