New 7-Series Solitaire & Master Class Editions Show BMW’s Attention To Detail

With the new BMW 7 Series, BMW is already setting benchmarks in the luxury segment, and with the help of its Individual division, the Bavarian car manufacturer raises the bar even higher.

BMW Individual is demonstrating its expertise by developing two special edition models based on the 750Li xDrive – the “Solitaire” (limited only to six models), as well as the one-off “Master Class”.

On the exterior, the two 7s come in two exclusive colors, BMW Individual Metallic Black Gold and BMW Individual Metallic Solitaire White. The German company says that these hues can only be applied by incorporating an extremely complex method, using fine glass flakes embedded in the final layer of the paint.

You’ll find the same individuality and craftsmanship throughout the cabin, as the vehicles feature BMW Individual fine-grain full leather trim Merino as well as an Alcantara roof liner. While the list of bespoke fitments (which includes storage compartments for cosmetic tissues finished in color-matching leather) is comprehensive, the highlight of these special editions are undoubtedly the five optional diamond inserts in the interior trims on the dashboard and doors.

Powering the cars is a V8 petrol engine with BMW TwinPower Turbo technology, which develops 450PS (442 HP) and 650 Nm of torque – enough for making the luxury automobiles accelerate from 0 to 100 Km/h (62 mph) in 4.7 seconds, in their journey to an electronically limited top speed of 250 km/h (155 mph).

    OK so nice materials and all but I feel like luxed-up German cars with all the frills just miss the point for me and look like they’re trying way too hard. Give me a nice dark (Bundes)bank vault.

      That’s old school dude. To much association with Rusky Mafs.

        Redfellas go for the flash, few of them are old school. No one is more old school then a German banker – bet your last Deutschmark on that.

    Plush and very tasteful. This interior is very inviting.

    i dont care for it

  • TheBelltower

    Shiny trinkets that have been glued onto the dashboard don’t say effortless luxury to me. That suede and leather is very nice though.

    • Kash

      Agreed. And that bedazzled key fob screams tacky more than luxury.

        Didn’t Deadpool say it’s a KeyFob and not a ‘Chandelier’!!!

    Someone give BMW an English dictionary. Solitaire means one, not six.

    • antbee

      Might as well be Solitaire, though, as any one of six, would more than likely be the only one of its kind on any continent, country, state, city…

    “five optional diamond inserts in the interior trims on the dashboard and doors.”
    I’m gonna have ta say, “no.”

    I wish BMW had provided pictures of the Black-Gold finish, that would be interesting, to me, to see how it looks.
