We’ve known about a special stretch version of the 5-series for some time now but BMW has waited till now to announce it. The LWB model has been created especially for the Chinese market, where many owners have chauffeurs rather than drive the car themselves. BMW will show the LWB 5-series at the upcoming Auto China show in Beijing (Nov 18-27).

In the back, this car has a tray table for rear passengers, as well as extra legroom (140mm), and more entertainment options. Passengers get 8” LCD displays with integrated DVD player and cooling system controls.

There will be three models available – 530Li, 525Li, and 523Li, with engines ranging in power from 177hp (130 KW) up to 258hp (190 KW).
