Customers can choose two paint finishes from BMW’s ‘Individual’ palette – a Frozen Silver or a dark blue Petrol Mica. The M Aerodynamics Package is fitted to the car as standard, introducing sportier looking bumpers and side skirts, while 20-inch V-spoke alloy wheels also make the cut. Exclusive 40 Jahre badging is placed on the B-pillars and doorsills.

In the cabin, the 7 Series 40 Jahre models receive BMW Individual Merino fine grain leather upholstery in a choice of two colour contrasting shades – Smoke White and Cohiba or Smoke White and black, while white piping lines the seats and matches the white Alcantara liner.

BMW will offer a choice of piano black wood inserts or brown Eucalyptus trim, and comfort seats are fitted in both the front and rear of the cabin. Aside from these tweaks, the full range of equipment tweaks found on the 7 Series’ option list will also be available for buyers to spec as they please.

What do you make of the 7 Series 40 Jahre? Let us know in the comments.
