BMW is celebrating its centennial this year, with a lot of special yet limited editions to be released in different markets worldwide. The latest model to be launched in Japan is this gorgeous BMW 5-Series “BARON” limited edition.
The model is aimed exclusively for the Japanese market, being available in a limited edition of just 200 units, each one costing 7,700,000 YEN, which is the equivalent of $70,300.
As opposed to BMW`s latest special edition of BMW 5-Series “NEXT 100 YEARS” which was praised by journalists worldwide, this new 5-Series BARON doesn’t seem to favor all odds, the model being considered just a common 5-Series with some handful of improvements in terms of styling.
The limited edition 5-Series BARON can be had with a choice of Mediterranean Blue or Mineral Gray exterior color, along with the Oyster or Veneto Beige finish inside the cabin, which complement the Dakota leather upholstery.
In terms of visuals, the centennial 5-Series BARON features adaptive LED headlights, 19-inch M alloy wheels, and the BMW Individual aluminum line, while the interior adds Fine Line Ansorajitto Wood trim, dedicated coat hanger, special leather-wrapped key case, soft-close and electric trunk opening, and cabin aroma diffuser.
Being a special edition of the 523d model, the all-new 5-Series BARON midsize premium sedan is equipped with the M Sport Package and a 2.0-liter turbodiesel flat-four engine, developing 184 horsepower and 380 Nm of torque, hooked to an eight-speed automatic transmission.
