Build only 200 units, the BMW 5 Series Celebration Edition BARON Is Made for the Real Gentleman.
2016 BMW 5 Series BARON Edition — The Japanese branch of the German automotive company release BMW 5 Series Celebration Edition BARON, with caps lock, to celebrate the 100th anniversary of BMW. As a general reminder, baron could mean two things: (1) the last rank in British nobility. And, (2) people who have always wanted to lead, courageous, responsible, and always wanted to give something new.
So, which definition is in line with this series?. None! According to BMW Japan, BARON is associated with the “real gentleman”. Since this series is a special edition, BMW plans to build a total of only 200 units. And, it is only available in the Japanese market. Sales will also be made in near real time, on Saturday, April 29th.

Review Engines and Performance
Just like last year when Japan released the 5 Series Maestro as Japan’s special edition, the 2016 BMW 5 Series BARON edition is also based on 523d M Sport models equipped with clean diesel engines. This is, somehow, far from being the fuel of choice for a gentleman as for some reasons, petrol-heads called it as the official fuel of the kitchen devil.
Because 2016 BMW 5 Series Baron is based on the standard 523d, this is not something that really should be discussed further given that only a few things make it stand out from the standard model. This luxury sedan equipped with the 523d standard engine. A 2.0-liter turbo-diesel powered by 184 hp (134 kilowatts) and 380 nm (280-pound feet) of torque. It is then used an eight-speed automatic transmission system to send the power to the rear wheels.
