Some may compare the elegance of a BMW to that of a piano. No? Well, maybe it’s just BMW then as the German automaker has teamed up with piano manufacturer Steinway & Sons for an exclusive 7-Series model that borrows the design from one of their magnificent creations. This special edition model is based on both the normal and long-wheelbase versions and will be offered in just two exterior colors. We’ll let you take a guess at what those two colors might be.
The BMW Individual 7-Series Composition models will feature either a black or white exterior paint finish that is individually smoothed and polished by hand. This high end finish is given this treatment so that it may be comparable to the exquisite finish of piano lacquer. And since this model is supposed to be reminiscent of a piano, the focus has to lend itself to sound as much as exterior beauty. That is why BMW is offering an audio system specially adapted to the luxury saloon’s interior.
There’s no word as to how much this elegant beauty is going to set anyone back, but we imagine this limited edition will catch the eye of anyone who has a passionate love of music.
Updated 04/06/2011: The special edition BMW 7-Series Steinway & Sons made its debut on the Chinese market. The new 7-Series Steinway & Sons Piano Limited Edition will be based on either 740i or 760i versions and will be limited to only 150 units worldwide. This special edition will be painted in hand polished metallic paint, with texture comparable with Steinway piano. The whole painting process takes at least 35 hours to complete.
