Releasing this August, BMW will provide both the X5 M and X6 M SUVs in the company’s latest special edition called, the Black Fire Edition, and will continue the automaker’s “success story in the Sports Activity Vehicle (SAV) and Sports Activity Coupe (SAC) sectors.”
While absolutely nothing has been done to either vehicle’s engine, and why would you when both create 575 horse power from their 4.4-liter twin-turbocharged V-8s, both the exterior and interior of both the X6 M and X5 M have been eliminated and offered a racier look.
Both the X5 M and X6 M get a special shade of black paint, called Sapphire Black Metallic, which likewise consists of both car’s normal brightware, including the double-kidney grille, and carbon-fiber mirror caps. Each vehicle also receives a set of staggered 21-inch M alloy wheels, completed in the special Sapphire Black Metallic paint and finishes the car’s enormous looks.
Looking at the interior, BMW lathered both the X5 M and X6 M with a host of motorsport goodies, consisting of M multi-functional seats, Alcantara upholstery, aluminum shift paddles, and M’s multi-functional Alcantara steering wheel with a light-blue leather accent representing BMW’s history with motorsport.
As discussed previously, BMW will begin to make the Black Fire Editions from this coming August, although the automaker has yet to reveal rates on the upcoming special editions.
The standard BMW X5 M costs $100,700, where as the X6 M costs $104,400, and we expect the Black Fire Edition to no less than another couple thousand dollars on top of that given the nature of the M Performance parts additions.
