BMW has a pair of special edition high performance SUVs on the way, announcing the X5 M and X6 M will be available in a Black Fire Edition in limited numbers in Australia.

Following in the footsteps of the oh-so-popular ‘black edition’ models that numerous automakers have turned out, the sporty specials feature a sinister appearance package that consists of black paint, black alloy wheels, a black grille, black window tinting and dark carbon-fibre mirror caps.

Under the bonnet both SUVs retain the 423kW and 750Nm 4.4-litre twin-turbo V8 engines of the regular X5 M and X6 M.

The interiors have been tricked-up via black Merino leather with Mugello red highlights, red contrast stitching, plus “Edition Black Fire” badging for the piano black interior trims. Soft-close doors are also included as standard.

Pricing for the X5 M Black Fire Edition starts at $205,900 plus on-road costs with just 15 cars available. The X6 M Black Fire Edition will be even more limited with just 10 units available from $214,800, or around $17,000 more than a regular M-car.

The Black Fire Editions arrive ahead of the fourth-generation BMW X5 which is expected to be revealed overseas next year, before it arrives locally in 2019. Set to share parts of its architecture with the latest BMW 5-Series, the new car will be lighter, smarter and safer than the outgoing car.

Performance enthusiasts can expect the next X5 M to share its engine with the recently unveiled M5 sedan, including a version of that car’s updated 441kW and 750Nm 4.4-litre twin-turbo V8, eight-speed automatic, and all wheel drive system.

An all-new X5 M isn’t likely to be seen until well into 2019 however leaving the X5 M Black Fire Edition, which is on sale now, to fill the void for performance SUV fans.
