BMW X5 M and X6 M Black Fire takes a step into the dark side

BMW releases 25 special editions of two big, fast SUVs – the X5 and X6M. They’re called ‘Black Fire’, and they are indeed just that.

Living up to their names in Saphire Black Metallic paint, a black grille with black louvres and carbon fibre mirror caps. Each rides on 21-inch black alloy wheels that are staggered in width, 10 inches wide at the front, 11.5 inches wide at the rear.

Inside you get two-tone red/black leather, and can option an Alcantara wheel. The overall effect is a uniquely sinister exterior. Standard sun protection glazing on the rear windows have the double effect of adding privacy and further subtle menace to the X5 M and X6 M Black Fire appearance.
