BMW has a strong following in the Land of the Rising Sun, and has been gracing it with a number of special editions over the past several years. We recently reported on the 120i Performance Unlimited edition, and now BMW Japan has followed up with the new Silver Top edition of the Z4 roadster.
As you might have guessed the Silver Top is distinguished by its silver top. The contrast with the black body color gives it a rather Zagato-like profile, and the mirror housings get the same treatment. In case the look wasn't complete enough, the interior has been decked out in red leather as well. It's based on the sDrive23i trim level, pairing the 2.5-liter six with the six-speed automatic transmission.
Only 15 examples will be offered exclusively in Japan with a 5.590 million yen sticker price – about $69k by today's conversion rates – with deliveries slated to arrive in April 2011. Your best chance of seeing one, then, is likely the image gallery we've put together for your viewing pleasure, so check it out.
