After pleasing the US market with a US-only model, BMW is now pampering its customers in Japan. BMW has just recently unveiled limited edition production specials solely for the Japanese Market.
The latest to join the catalog is the BMW 120i Performance Unlimited, which comes equipped with the 170-horsepower 2-liter four with a six-speed automatic and a variety of M-Sport components, from the bumpers and blacked-out grille to the 18-inch split-five-spoke rims and carbon fiber spoiler and wing mirror housings, along with an upgraded interior. Exterior colors are limited to blue or white, and only 30 examples will be built each carrying a ¥4,350,000 ($50,000) price tag.
The special 1 Series follows in the footsteps of the BMW X6 Performance Unlimited and the Mini Savile Row edition announced a few weeks ago. The special X6 is powered by the company’s twin-turbo 3-liter hybrid inline-six with an eight-speed transmission, complimented by special aero package, wheels and interior. Available exclusively in silver in a limited run of 20 examples with a ¥9,450,000 ($107,000) price tag.
The Mini Savile Row is a limited edition restricted to just 100 examples. The Mini pays tribute to London’s famous tailoring quarter in jet black with chrome wheels and trim. With a range of optional extras included as standard, the Mini has an asking price of ¥3,100,000 ($35,000).
