Another special edition luxury sedan has just debuted. It’s the BMW 7 Series Edition 40 Jahre and only 200 units will be produced.

Set to make its debut at this year’s Frankfurt Motor Show, only 10 of the 200 units will be heading to the U.S., and it’s a safe bet they’ll be asold out before it debuts in Frankfurt. Designed to celebrate 40 years of the 7 Series sedan, buyers will get to choose from either Frozen Silver Metallic or Petrol Mica Metallic exterior paint. Frozen Silver Metallic is the more conventional of the two paint shades, while Petrol Mica Metallic is said to be a color that celebrates the rich heritage of blue hues in BMW’s history.

Every vehicle will also receive high-gloss black Shadow Line trim and will come with BMW Individual 20-inch V-spoke wheels.

Climbing into the luxurious cabin, two leather combinations are available: Smoke White/Cohiba or Smoke White/Black. No matter the choice, the headliner is finished in Smoke White Alcantara, while wood trim will be either Smoke Brown or Piano Black to match the leather upholstery. Naturally, there are plenty of badges inside and out to commemorate the 40-year anniversary.

BMW didn’t clarify which configurations will be available for the U.S. market, but in Europe, buyers can choose from all engines and drivetrains. Pricing has not yet been announced.

    Oh, but it's not the nice old body style, is it? There's just one of them in the picture with the new one?
