Another limited edition Leica M set to be announced in the next few weeks (update: Ara Güler)

A reader sent me this picture of a new special/limited edition Leica M camera that will probably be announced in the next few weeks. I have no other details for this set. Can someone recognize the logo on the top plate?

Update: the top plate has the signature of Ara Güler – an Armenian-Turkish photojournalist who recently received the Leica Hall of Fame Award. Here is some additional information:

Ara Güler special edition set is limited to only 50 pieces and will be on sale soon only by Leica Camera Turkey. It is a Leica M-P 240 model with a 35mm Summicron lens all in black lacquer with leather accesories. The price is expected to be around €20,000 (around $22,000)

Ara Güler, a renown “Leica Master” photographer, will receive his 01 serial number set next month at the award ceremony for Leica Hall of Fame Award in Istanbul. Under his signature on the top plate of the camera, there is a label “50 Years Master of Leica”.
