The Japanese always seem to get the coolest cars that are not available to people living in North America and once again they get a cool special edition model from BMW. The model in question is the BMW Z4 Silver Top Edition.
The Japan only Z4 is not entirely painted as the name would suggest, only the foldable two-piece hard-top roof and the outside mirrors are finished in Titanium Silver. The rest of the car is finished in Black Sapphire paint. The interior gets a minor upgrade with aluminum trim pieces and fancy Coral Deep Red Kansas leather covered sport seats.
The Z4 Silver Top is only offered in the sDrive23i trim, which means it is powered by a 2.5 liter inline six engine that produces 204 horsepower and 184 pound-feet (250 Nm) of torque mated to a six-speed transmission.
Production of the BMW Z4 Silver Top edition is limited to only 15 pieces and will cost 5.59 million yen, which roughly translates to $67,000. The Z4 can be ordered at any Japanese BMW dealers, delivery is expected to be in April 2011.
Now that I look back at this post, I don’t think there is anything special about this “special edition” BMW. I take back everything I said in the first paragraph (the part about wanting this BMW).
