BMW release X5, X6 and X7 black special editions

Home Prestige BMW release X5, X6...


Changes include unique exterior paints, bespoke alloy wheels and extra technology.

BMW’s range-topping SUV trio has gained a pair of limited-edition specifications with unique exterior body colours, design features and additional equipment.

The X5 and X6 each receive Black Vermillion edition models, offering a Frozen Black exterior paint with red accents, an updated grille featuring red bars, exclusive 22in alloy wheels and an M Sport exhaust system. The models also feature high-gloss Shadowline exterior trim, red M Sport brake callipers and BMW’s laser light technology.

Inside, Black Vermillion models feature full black leather trim with red accents found on the floor mats and rear seats. The cars also gain front comfort seats, sun-protection glass, Alcantara roof lining and added detailing to the car’s cup holder cover.

The X7 M50i gets its own, similarly specified, limited-edition model: the Frozen Black Edition. Like the Black Vermillion package, it brings Frozen Black paint, black 22in light alloy wheels, laser lights, the M Sport exhaust system, sun-protection glass, Shadowline exterior trim and M Sport brake calipers.

The X7’s interior also sees some changes, with the same Alcantara roof lining found on Black Vermillion models in addition to crystal glass, though the firm’s comfort pack plus, technology plus pack and panoramic sunroof are still listed as optional extras.

The X7 M50i Frozen Black models will be built from August this year, whereas 50 X5 Vermilion Edition models will go into production starting in September. BMW Australia is yet to confirm if the model will arrive locally, though production numbers for Europe are slim.
