Another special edition BMW is headed to Japan

Remember when the U.S. used to receive a good number of special edition vehicles from automakers all over the world? It still happens to a certain extent, but it seems that a lot of BMW’s desirable limited edition cars are headed elsewhere, most notably to our friends over in Japan. And so, after staring longingly at this new special edition from Bimmer, I present to you the 7 Series Rose Quartz Edition.

As most of you can expect, this is not a “standard” 7 Series, even though I’m fully aware of the paradox that comes with mentioning the words “standard” and “7 Series” in one sentence. But it’s also true because the 7 Series Rose Quartz has a menu of nice features that are exclusive to it. Even better, BMW has based the special edition 7er on the 750Li, which means that in addition to its unique add-ons, it also carries a 4.4-liter twin-turbo V-8 engine that pumps out 445 horsepower and 480 pound-feet of torque, enough to propel it from 0 to 60 mph in just 4.3 seconds.

The 7 Series Rose Quartz will make its debut on November 2, 2016 at the Ritz-Carlton Osaka. There’s no mention yet on how many units of the special edition 7 Series will be made available to the public. What I do know is that unless somebody finds a way to import these units to the U.S., the only way to get them is if you’re in Japan and you have 20.19 million yen to spare, or the equivalent of $193,900 based on current exchange rates.

What makes the BMW 7 Series Rose Quartz so special

The unique name of this special edition 7 Series gives away one of its most prominent features. That would be the Rose Quartz paint finish that’s exclusive to the model. It also has a few chrome additions to the body and it sits on a new set of 20-inch wheels. Now I don’t get too excited about exclusive colors because they oftentimes border on the tacky side, but this Rose Quartz finish is absolutely perfect for the 750Li. It’s unique enough that it’ll catch your attention, but it’s also classically subdued, which fits into the luxurious character of the 7 Series limousine.

More importantly, the interior upgrades to its interior are just as impressive, maybe even more so if you’re a fan of Smoke White Merino leather. Most of the cabin’s surface area has been adorned in this material and we have BMW Individual to thank for that. The leather surfaces are complemented with an Ash Grain black wooden trim with matching red highlights and a multifunction steering wheel that gets its own wood trim.

Rounding off the exclusivity of the 7 Series Rose Quartz are other significant additions from BMW Individual. From the door sill plates to the rear comfort package, Sky Lounge panorama glass sunroof, massage rear seats, and heat comfort comfort package, each and everyone of these features come as standard to the special edition 7 Series. That partly explains why the luxury limousine costs just shy of $200,000; it’s been dressed to look the part of a $200,000 ride.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read More
