The BMW X5 M and X6 M Get A Menacing Makeover

Special Edition

You can imagine villains driving these sinister SUVs in Hollywood movies.

This week, BMW revealed the all-new X3 which, for the first time in the model’s history, will include a potent M performance model. A more hardcore X3 M SUV is expected to become the new range-topper positioned above the X3 M40i. Not to make its older siblings feel left out, the German automaker has revealed two new special editions of the X5 M and X6 M which have received a menacing makeover. Dubbed the Black Fire Edition, both models are finished in a sinister Sapphire Black Metallic paintjob, and feature a blacked-out grille.

Completing the sinister look are black forged 21-inch alloy wheels andcarbonfibermirrorcaps. We can already imagine the Black Fire SUVs being driven by villains in Hollywood movies. Inside, the all-black theme continues in the cabin. The spiced-up SUVs come with a full fine-grain Merino leather upholstery with contrasting Mugello Red accentswhichhasalsobeen applied tothecenterconsole. Further distinguishing the X5 M and X6 M is a piano black trim and an anthracite headliner from BMW Headliner to compliment the luxurious upholstery. Special Black Fire logos adorn the side of the passenger seat to remind you that you’re not sat in a standard X5 M or X6 M.
