Just as the X3 has made debut, we see the X5 M and X6 M Blackfire versions taking their slots immediately. Both high-performance models are powered by equal and same biturbo 4.4-liter V8 engins which produce 567 horsepower (423 kilowatts) and a massive 553 pound-feet (750 Newton-meters) of torque sent to the xDrive system via an eight-speed automatic transmission, skyrocketing them to 62 mph (100 kph) in just 4.2 seconds before hitting a max 155 mph (250 km/hr).
The Black Fire Edition is geared towards making the X5 M and X6 M look more courageous, bold and sinister with an all-black look, including for the forged 21-inch alloy wheels. To spice things up even further, BMW has installed a pair of carbon fiber mirror caps to complement the Sapphire Black Metallic body. Even the double kidney grille comes in black attire.
Both vehicles also share similar attributes such as full fine-grain Merino leather upholstery with a two-tone Black and Mugello Red appearance. Several other features include fully electric front seats, a piano black trim, and an anthracite headliner from the fancy BMW Individual portfolio.
There’s also a special logo mounted on the passenger side to denote these are not some “ordinary” X5 M and X6 M models. Rounding off the tweaks is the choice for either a leather- or Alcantara-wrapped steering wheel.
Pricing for the X5 M and X6 M begins from $100,700 and $104,100 respectively.
