Black is powerful, black is exciting, and black is exclusive: the same can be said of the new Black Fire Edition of the BMW X5 M and the BMW X6 M (combined fuel consumption: 11.1 l/100 km; combined CO2 emissions: 258 g/km*). The two special editions see BMW emphatically continue its success story in the Sports Activity Vehicle (SAV) and Sports Activity Coupé (SAC) sectors.
From October 2017, both cars will be available in South Africa. The Black Fire Edition combines exciting exterior and interior design with high-class, exclusive furnishing details. The special edition pairs all this with the impressive driving dynamics and power delivery of the BMW X5 M and BMW X6 M models.
No matter what terrain the BMW X5 M Edition Black Fire and the BMW X6 M Edition Black Fire find themselves on, these special models cut a fine figure on any route. The rich shade of black in the Sapphire Black Metallic paint job alone catches the eye.
This also applies to the forged 21-inch M alloy wheels in black. These large wheels with mixed-sized tyres (front: 10 J x 21, rear: 11.5 J x 21) are weight-optimized and instrumental in transferring the power generated by the M TwinPower Turbo Technology to the road.
Motorsport feel on the inside.
Great emphasis is also placed on premium quality inside the BMW X5 M Edition Black Fire and BMW X6 M Edition Black Fire. Fully-electric M multi-functional seats with integrated headrests come as standard in full fine-grain Merino leather, in contrasting Black and Mugello Red.
As well as the standard, multi-functional M leather steering wheel with aluminium shift paddles, the BMW M Performance Alcantara steering wheel with light-blue leather Motorsport accent is also available as an option and at no extra charge. It not only creates a racing feeling, but also boasts an eye-catching design and extremely prevalent gripping area made from Alcantara – for optimal grip in all temperatures.

Power on the streets.
Both models generate a top performance of 423 kW (both: combined fuel consumption: 11.1 l/100 km; combined CO2 emissions: 258 g/km*) from the 4.4-litre V8 engine. Both cars do 0 to 100 km/h in just 4.2 seconds with the standard 8-speed M Steptronic gearbox. The maximum torque of 750 Nm in the rpm range between 2,200 und 5,000 min-1. The xDrive four-wheel drive system has been set up with a rear-wheel bias, the Dynamic Performance Control system seamlessly distributes the drive torque between the rear wheels.
In combination with the outstanding deceleration values of the M compound brakes, the unmistakable sound of the M TwinPower turbo engine makes the impressive performance of both models audible, thus providing an extremely emotional driving experience. The Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) also allows every driver to adapt the sportiness of their BMW X5 M or BMW X6 M to any situation and to suit their individual preferences, at the push of a button.
