Home / Social media / Cars / The BMW X5/X6 Black Vermilion is a dark and delightful limited edition SUV


BMW makes some of the best SUVs on the planet, the X5, X6 and X7 is the luxury SUV of choice for many around the world thanks to the tech-filled and feature-rich packages, not forgetting an array of powerful engines that when added to the brilliant BMW xDrive all-wheel drive are actually capable of performance that can rival supercar performance. This new BMW X5 and BMW X6 have been around for about a year now, and it’s been rather well-received, which makes sense when they’re finished in that Black Vermilion paint. Incidentally, an X7 was released at the same time in BMW’s Frozen Black Metallic paint, which is one of those rare shades of paint that suits just about anything it covers. 

The main focus of the Black Vermilion Edition is the clever use of contrasting colours, which in this case is a combination of that super smooth-looking Frozen Black paint and red accents. The BMW double kidney grille with contrasting red bars looks just right. For the BMW X6 Black Vermilion, the highlight combines the kidney grille with Iconic Glow. There are also model-specific front and rear aprons, Orbit Grey matt 22-inch, double-spoke 742 M light alloy wheels and red high-gloss M Sport brake calipers. Changes inside include an M Alcantara Anthracite roof liner, a finely crafted Edition logo on the cupholder cover in BMW Individual Piano Black, the glass application Crafted Clarity on the iDrive Controller, the automatic gear selector and Start/Stop button, as well as the BMW Individual precious wood interior trim Fineline Black with aluminium inlays. The BMW Individual full leather trim matches in Merino Black with edition-specific red contrast stitching for both front seats.

Why are they back in the news? Well after a year of jealous vibes from wealthy Australian BMW fans, the X6-based Black Vermilion is headed to the country. Based on the BMW X6 M50i, the X6 Black Vermilion features BMW’s 390 kW (530 hp) and 750 Nm twin-turbocharged 4.4-litre V8. A mere five units are destined for Aussie shores, and they’re not cheap at  AU$208,900, or as close as damn to R2 500 000. An already limited edition will be even more limited and that’s a recipe for a car that will appreciate in value at a pretty good rate.
