BMW flips the switch on Black Fire editions

951

Black is beautiful and the same can be said of BMW’s new Black Fire Edition X5 M and X6 M.

The dynamic duo will be available from August in a combo that visualises all the strengths of the BMW X5 M and BMW X6 M.

The Black Fire Edition combines exciting exterior and interior design cues with an eye-catching Sapphire Black Metallic paintjob and black M double kidney grille with black bars – a unique feature of the special editions.

Forged black 21-inch M alloy wheels come with carbon mirror caps that accentuate the lightweight design of both models and show the close relationship between both cars and motorsport.

Inside fully-electric M multifunctional seats with integrated headrests come as standard in full fine-grain Merino leather, in contrasting Black and Mugello Red.

The fine tone is underlined by the contrasting red seams on the full leather upholstery, which also includes the central console.

The twin-turbo 4.4-litre V8 in both models cranks out 423kW and both cars do the dash from 0 to 100 km/h in just 4.2 seconds with the standard 8-speed M Steptronic gearbox.

Maximum torque of 750Nm is available between 2200 und 5000 revs and the xDrive four-wheel drive system is set up with a rear-wheel bias, which improves the agility.

The Dynamic Performance Control system seamlessly distributes the drive torque between the rear wheels.
