The Land of the Special Editions – as is known the island nation among automobile aficionados – has done it again, with another new model debut featuring a limited version from the get go.
This time around we’re dealing with the brand new, but polarizing BMW 6 Series Gran Turismo – which makes its official sales debut in Japan via a limited Debut Edition special series. The German automaker based off its latest creation on the 640i and will only be sold to 40 customers in the country. BMW Japan has decided a generous amount of standard kit is in order for the lucky new owners, with the M Sport package bringing a more dynamic stance along with other features from the BMW Individual catalog.
The 6 Series GT Debut Edition is wrapped in a bespoke Sophisto Gray paint, rides on 20-inch M alloy wheels with two-tone design and blue brake calipers. Some chrome accents as well as the tinted rear windows give the thumbs up to the panache level before you get inside the cabin. The 40-car series receives Dakota leather upholstery finished in a luxed up cognac shade, with piano black trim and a 16-speaker, 1,400-watt Bowers & Wilkins surround sound system delivering the high-end aural experience. Extra perks include gesture control and remote-control parking, ventilated seats, four-zone climate control, soft-close doors, and a rear-seat entertainment system. The price is up for the same high standards though – 12,890,000 yen, netting the customer a turbocharged 3.0-liter inline-six engine with 335 horsepower (250 kilowatts) and 332 pound-feet (450 Newton-meters) of torque linked to an AWD setup.
