Celebrating 30 years of presence on the Japanese auto market, BMW launched a special edition for the 528i model named Anniversary Edition that comes with some goodies along with the old 3.0 liter engine.
According to the German automaker, the 528i Anniversary Edition launched in Japan takes its power from the old 3.0 liter inline-six engine, not the new 2.0 liter turbocharged unit (N20), but its price is not what you can call cheap.
BMW says that only 200 units of the Anniversary Edition 528i will be made and those ones will stand out from the crowd thanks to the Japan M Sport package with custom front and rear bumpers, side skirts and big alloy wheels, with the Deep Sea Blue Metallic paint scheme coming in contrast with the Veneto Beige Dakota leather found in the cabin.
The Anniversary Edition of the 5-Series also comes with Wood Fine Honey Brown Individual trim, door sill plates engraved with the 30th anniversary logo, a premium audio system of 600W and head-up display, all of these for 7.890.000 yen or 103.400 USD. The only question that remains is why spend $100k on this when you can get the new M5 instead?
