BMW X5 M and X6 M Black Fire Edition pricing

M Sport SUVs get aggro makeover without flexing extra muscle.

BMW has announced a new special edition trim package for its X5 M and X6 M SUVs.

The Black Fire Edition models will attract a premium approaching $20,000 over the standard M models, which will bring numerous cosmetic enhancements both inside and out to give for a tougher, sportier look

As the name suggests, their exteriors are completely blacked-out, with a black kidney grille and carbon fibre wing mirror caps to complement the Sapphire Black Metallic paintwork.

The 21-inch M Sport alloy wheels are also finished in black and are arranged in a staggered setup – 10 inches wide up front, 11.5 inches wide in the rear.

The interior also receives unique touches in the way of Merino leather seats and interior trim finished in a contrasting black and Mugello red, along with an Alcantara-clad M Performance steering wheel and headliner and a Black Fire Edition logo adorning the passenger-side of the dashboard.

However, this special edition does not bring any added performance, with the firepower under the bonnets of the two remaining unchanged from the standard M versions.

This means both will still sport a 4.4-litre twin-turbocharged V8 producing a very healthy 423kW and 750Nm and coupled to an eight-speed M Steptronic automatic transmission and BMW’s rear-biased xDrive all-wheel drive system.

Straight line performance also stays the same, with both models able to do the 0-100km/h sprint in a respectable 4.2 seconds.

A total of 25 Black Fire Editions have been earmarked for Australia, with 15 X5 M and 10 X6 Ms being made available from October.
