We first saw the 2009 BMW 7-Series Individual as a limited model in the 2008 Neiman Marcus Christmas Book . But just like the limited edition Z3 from the 1995 book, BMW couldn’t keep the special car just to the mail order crowd. So now at the Geneva Auto Show in two weeks BMW will show off a 7-Series Individual designed for the showroom.
The Neiman Marcus car was only available in a color called "Diopside Black", but on this one the car can be ordered in Anthracite, Silk Grey, Champagne, Amaro Brown and Platinum. Also the "Champagne Merino" mandatory color on the inside has bee replaced by the choice of leather in Graphite, Silk Grey, Champagne, Amaro Brown, Cohiba Brown, or Platinum. The 7-Series Individual is also offered with 20-inch light-alloy wheels in V-spoke design.
The real difference between the Individual version and the standard 7-Series seems to be the special paint. One final new color available is called "Citrin Black", which has Xillaric technology. This technology applies sophisticated crystallization process that produce special-effect pigments shimmering like gold in the sun.
We don’t have the pricing yet, but we expect it to retail for less than the 31-unit only $160,000 Neiman Marcus car.
