BMW celebrates 30th anniversary of the 5 Series with special edition for Japan

Hard as it may be to imagine for some, there was a time when there was no BMW 5 Series. Shocking, we know, but that was over three decades ago. The Bavarian mid-range staple is celebrating its 30th anniversary this year, and to mark the occasion, BMW is offering a special edition exclusive to the Japanese market.

The 528i 30th Anniversary Edition packs the M Sport aero package, matched to the blue color of the exterior, and interior options – including beige leather, satin walnut trim, head-up display, 16-speaker sound system with USB interface – plus aluminum window frames and tinted glass from the BMW Individual catalog and special door sill plates, all bundled as standard.

Only 200 units will be offered in the Asian island nation, with a price tag of ¥ 7,890,000 – equating to a little over $100k, or ¥740 (just $10) over the price of the standard 528i in Japan.
