Munich/Monaco. BMW takes on the role of exclusive automotive
partner at yet another leading event – this time against the glamorous
backdrop of the Monaco Yacht Show 2012. For the fifth time, the famous
yacht fair provides the perfect stage for presenting the new BMW 7
Series and the luxurious BMW 6 Series to a high-calibre international
public. Through its involvement in this event BMW is underscoring its
commitment to the premium and luxury segment, in which the carmaker is
targeting future expansion.
Each September, some 100 superyachts and megayachts converge on the
Principality of Monaco to the delight of tens of thousands of
visitors. Shipyards, marine fitters, architects, designers and yacht
brokers set out their wares in Port Hercules for a maritime parade
that ranks as one of the world’s most exclusive yacht shows. For the
BMW Group, as the world’s most successful premium carmaker, it
represents the ideal platform. Playing its part once again this year
as a cooperative partner is Edmiston, one of the biggest yacht brokers worldwide.
Immediately below the Prince’s Palace visitors can view, among
others, the brand-new BMW 6 Series Gran Coupe. It comes with
Individual matt Frozen Bronze Metallic paintwork that impressively
highlights the elegant aesthetics of the BMW 6 Series Gran Coupe and
is available exclusively for this model.
Another highlight at this year’s Monaco Yacht Show is the BMW 6
Series Convertible on display in the harbour and featuring an
exclusive yachting look created by the BMW Individual division. This
dream car draws on elements from yacht design and is striking for its
exquisite Individual paintwork in Tansanite Blue complemented by an
exclusive interior sporting Merino full-leather upholstery in Opal White.
A total of 15 courtesy cars will be available for the event’s guests
in the guise of the BMW 7 Series Sedan launched this July. With its
stylish design and innovative technology, the new BMW 7 Series is
targeted at a discerning customer group that sets store by the utmost
in comfort and convenience. The elegant BMW 6 Series and the BMW 7
Series set benchmarks for the luxury segment. With their stylish
elegance and timeless design, they allow cutting-edge mobility to be
experienced in its most luxurious form.
