BMW X5 M/X6 M Black Fire Edition Headed for SA


BMW has revealed a new Black Fire Edition of its X5 M and X6 M performance SUV. The limited edition models will arrive in South Africa towards the end of the year in limited numbers.

Fans of the BMW X5 M and X6 M performance SUV are in for a treat as BMW will be bringing a new Black Fire Edition to South Africa in the fourth quarter of 2017. Interested buyers will have to make their intentions known because only 25 units will be offered in our market. A total of 10 X5 M and 15 X6 M Black Fire Editions will be available.

Key details

Only 25 Black Fire X5 M and X6 M Edition models will be offered in South Africa. 

Both the X5 M and X6 M Black Fire Editions are powered by a potent 4.4-litre V8 engine that delivers 423 kW and 750 Nm of torque. Rear-biased xDrive all-wheel drive will ensure brisk acceleration using a standard 8-speed M steptronic transmission and BMW says both models will accelerate from zero to 100 kph in 4.2 seconds.

In terms of styling, both models wear a Sapphire Black Metallic paintjob and a unique black M double kidney grille with black bars dominates the front end. Large, black 21-inch forged alloy wheels are fitted and the models also feature carbon fibre mirror caps as standard.

On the inside, comfort comes in the form of fully-electric M multifunctional seats with integrated headrests and upholstered in fine-grain Merino leather in contrasting black and Mugello Red. Contrasting red seams are seen on the seats and on the centre console. An anthracite headliner complements the interior look even further, as do the piano black trim elements.  A leather M steering wheel with aluminium shift paddles will be offered as standard while a M Performance Alcantara steering wheel with light-blue leather accent will be available as an option at no extra charge.

Pricing for the X5 M and X6 M Black Fire Edition models are not yet known but we will keep you updated as soon as this information becomes available.
