BMW has just announced a new special edition 1-Series for the Japanese market. Built on the 116i version, the new "Fashionista" will be offered exclusively in a five-door body and will be limited to only 370 units. The model is now on sale at a starting price of ¥3,460,000 (around $37,500 at the current exchange rates).

The new special edition is distinguished by a stylish and sophisticated design, and can be ordered in three exterior colors: Crimson Red, White III Arupin and Deep Sea Blue metallic. Each color will be combined with chrome kidney grille bars and a black finish for the window surrounds. The model will sit on a set of 17-inch alloy wheels in a Y-spoke design, which further emphasizes the elegant and sophisticated appearance of the car.

For the interior, BMW offers Oyster Dakota leather for the seats, sections of the doors and the handbrake. The leather is offered in warm colors and it is combined with a gloss off-white finish for the dashboard, lower center console and door arms.

I like the new special edition of BMW. It has truly stylish and sophisticated design. It is a good thing that the car owners will be able to have a choice on what three exterior color they will have. I wonder if Deep Sea Blue metallic will be suitable for me.
