BMW’s Japanese division has taken the wraps off the 523d Maestro limited-run model. It pays tribute to classical music and it also celebrates the marque’s 99th anniversary so this explains why they want to produce just 99 units of the mid-size premium sedan. It will be available exclusively in Japan as a 523d model featuring a Black Sapphire exterior paint scheme and 19-inch alloy wheels that come with 245/40 R19 front and 275/35 R19 rear tires featuring run-flat technology. All of the cars will feature full LED adaptive headlights, LED fog lights and taillights, as well as soft-close doors and an M Aerodynamics exterior package.
Moreover, the BMW 523d Maestro benefits from an electric trunk opening & closing, a 600-watt Harman & Kardon sound system with 16 speakers, as well as heated front seats, front and rear parking sensors, sports seats, M badging, rearview camera, Merino Amaro Brown upholstery, Ansorajitto roof lining, fine-wood trim Sycamore Red Brown dark along with high-gloss Shadow Line Exterior – all from the BMW Individual catalog.
Motivation is provided by a 2.0-liter 4-cylinder turbodiesel rated at 184 PS (135 kW) and 380 Nm (281 lb-ft) working together with an 8-speed automatic gearbox.
The order books for the BMW 523d Maestro will open up on November 7 and those who are interested should know it kicks off at 7,980,000 yen.
