“Black is powerful, black is exciting, and black is exclusive.” – BMW
That quote is how BMW started off their press release regarding the new Black Fire Edition of the X5 M and X6 M. These new models take everything that makes the models successful and turns them into black stallions.
On the exterior of the Black Fire Edition models is a Sapphire Black Metallic paint. Joining in the dark appearance is the black M double kidney grille with black bars, which is unique to the Black Fire Edition. Even the 21-inch M allow wheels are finished in black, and the mirror caps are made of carbon. Essentially, the Black Fire Edition is really a ninja edition.
Inside, the fire comes to life thanks to the Mugello Red trim that contrasts against the full Black Merino leather interior. Piano black finish darkens the cabin even more, making the Mugello Red stand out like never before. Logos of the X5 M or X6 M Black Edition Edition can be found on the inside of the car.
Although they may have different model names, they both generate 575 hp from their 4.4-liter V8 engine. Power of this kind allows them to run 0-62 mph in 4.2 seconds when equipped with the standard 8-speed M Steptronic gearbox.
The Black Fire Edition models will become available in August 2017.
