A limited edition of the BMW 523d, called the Maestro, has been shown on the Japanese market.
The newest addition to the BMW lineup is a special edition of the 5-Series. This is the 523d Maestro limited-run which is acting as a celebration of classical music. All units will be offered with the Black Sapphire paint and will be getting the 19-inch M double-spoke 351M alloy wheels wrapped in 245/40 and 275/35, front to rear.
Some of the standard equipment found on the car includes the fine wood trim Sycamore Red Brown dark, the Ansorajitto roof lining, the Merino Amaro Brown upholstery, high-gloss Shadow Line Exterior, a 16-speaker 600-watt audio system signed by Harman Kardon, soft-close doors, electric trunk opening and closing, heated front seats and so on. BMW is also offering the full LED headlights, the fog lights and taillights, the front and rear parking sensors, the rearview camera, the M exterior badging and others.
Being a 523d, expect a 2.0 liter four-cylinder turbo diesel engine under its hood. This is producing a total of 184 HP (135 kW) and 380 Nm (281 lb-ft) of torque, sent to the rear-wheel drive through an 8-speed automatic transmission. BMW will be offering the new 523d Maestro Special Edition in just 99 units, celebrating the company’s 99th anniversary. The order books for the car will be opened on the 7th of November and the asking price will stand at 7,980,000 YEN, or the equivalent of 59,000 euros.
