BMW to unveil special 40th anniversary UAE edition 7 series
Looks like the premium car makers and allied design firms from around the world, are having a bonanza of sorts at the Dubai auto show 2011. We had earlier talked about the Brabus Mercedes and Range Rover Evoque at the event, and now it’s BMW which will introduce the limited edition 40th anniversary 7 series sedan at this event. This edition is to commemorate the 40 years of the unification of the UAE, and will feature several additions in many parts of the car including the chrome trimming, bearing the occasion.
On the list of major distinctions of this special edition 750Li model, will be a Marakesh brown paintjob on the external body of the sedan. This shade isn’t in the normal shade card, and has indeed been created for these special 40 units of the car, which will ever be made for sale. The chrome detailing will be seen in certain parts such as the bumper guard lining, and rear license plate beam, which will have the mention of the special occasion. On the interiors, the flavor of white and black have been captured in every detailing possible. The Merino Platinum leather interiors bear this unique combination with special craftsmanship like the black emblem of the UAE on the headrests, stitched in black, and also on several other points such as the rear seat control panel.
Under the engine hood, there is a 4.4 liter twin turbocharged V8 engine, which can generate around 407HP of output. It would take just 5.2 seconds for this engine to zoom from 0-100 km/ph, and can top 250 km/ph. The pricing isn’t known as yet, but the main dealers of this limited edition will be AGMC and Abu Dhabi Motors for this particular region.
For fans of the this brand, we suggest reading over the coverage on 2009 Niemen Marcus special edition of the 7 series, and also the Steinway & Sons edition made for China this year. Both editions carry their trademark additions while retaining the novelty of the brand in the truest sense. Comparisons of course, are wholly subjective.
