BMW Unveils X5, X6 Black Vermilion Edition
For some reason, BMW has unveiled two limited edition versions of the X5 and X6 called the “Black Vermilion” edition.
Looking like they just came out of your neighbourhood car accessories shop, the central focus of the Black Vermilion edition according to BMW, is “the interplay between the colours black and red”. Wow.
Black and red
From what we can see, the BMW double kidney grille feature red bars, creating a striking contrast to the BMW Individual Frozen Black special paint finish.
As for the BMW X6 Black Vermilion, the kidney grille comes with what is called an “Iconic Glow.”
Other supposedly cool features include Shadow Line M headlights with BMW laser light, and accented lighting with blue X signature.
Both models comprise, among other things, specific front and rear aprons as well as the M high-gloss Shadow Line with extended options.
Behind the Orbit Grey matt, 22-inch, double-spoke 742 M light alloy wheels with mixed tyres designed exclusively for these edition models, red high-gloss M Sport brake callipers stand out as a striking visual highlight.
Inside, the BMW X5 and BMW X6 Black Vermilion editions feature M Alcantara Anthracite roof liner.
And then we have the special logo on the cup holder cover in BMW Individual black piano finish, Crafted Clarity glass on the iDrive Controller, the automatic gear selector and Start/Stop button, and the BMW Individual Fineline Black wood interior trim with aluminium inlays.
The BMW Individual full leather trim Merino Black is additionally enhanced by edition-specific red contrast stitching for both the driver’s seat and front passenger seat.
Inside the BMW X5 Black Vermilion, the red accents are also to be found on the rear seats. Likewise, the edging on both the front and rear floor mats is finished in red.
Like the Black Vermilion editions, the new BMW X7 edition also has the BMW Individual special paint finish Frozen Black metallic, dispensing, however, with details in contrasting colour.
The BMW M Sport brake callipers of the edition-specific, 22-inch BMW Individual Y-spoke 758 I alloy wheels in Orbit Grey matt are finished in high gloss black.
Combined with the M Sport Package and the M High Gloss Shadow Line with extended options, it is this colour restraint in particular that make the 5.15-metre long and over 2-metre wide seven-seater look even more impressive.
The interior of the BMW X7 edition in Frozen Black metallic also comes with the M Alcantara Anthracite roof liner, Crafted Clarity glass application, and and sun-protection glass.
