Set to celebrate 40 years of its flagship sedan’s history, the 2018 BMW 7 Series Edition 40 Jahre is a limited-run model that will bow this September at the Frankfurt Auto Show. Confined to a run of just 200 with only 10 heading to America, the Edition 40 Jahre adds a near-endless selection of distinctive features to individually tailor the car to match the desires of any buyer.

Expressive elegance

Available in two exclusive BMW Individual colors, an iridescent Petrol Mica metallic and a silk-matte sheen Frozen Silver metallic, U.S. cars will only come in the latter hue. However, each Edition 40 Jahre model boasts an M Aerodynamics Package, BMW high-gloss Shadow Line trim and 20-inch BMW Individual light-alloy wheels as well as a special B-pillar badge. The cabin features an equally distinctive Smoke White/Cohiba or Smoke White/Black treatment rendered in full Merino leather on seats that have handwoven contrast piping and  a “7 40 Jahre” signet in each headrest. Other unique touches include a BMW Individual Alcantara Smoke White roof liner, custom Piano Black or Eucalyptus wood trim and Smoke White floor mats. Like its regular 7 Series siblings, the Edition 40 Jahre also will offer a panorama glass roof, executive lounge rear seating with a console featuring BMW’s Entertainment Experience with touch command as options.

Available in standard or long-wheelbase configurations and rear or xDrive AWD, the Edition 40 Jahre also will offer the full range of six, eight and 12 cylinder engines as well as the 4-cyliner iPerformance Plug-in Hybrid in Europe. The roster of standard features will include BMW’s Driving Experience Control with its Adaptive mode while the Executive Drive Pro system with active roll stabilization will be optional. However, there’s still no word as to whether U.S. buyers will have all of those choices--or exact pricing on the 2018 BMW 7 Series Edition 40 Jahre in the States.
