BMW has just introduced First Edition variants of both the X5 M Competition and X6 M Competition with production of each capped at 250 units.
Ordinarily, car manufacturers introduce ‘First Edition’ variants the moment a new model is launched but the current X5 M Competition and X6 M Competition were launched roughly 12 months ago. Odd name aside, BMW has made some subtle changes to differentiate the First Edition models from lesser variants.
For starters, the duo can be ordered in BMW Individual Frozen Dark Silver and BMW Individual Frozen Marina Bay Blue, two matte finishes that perfectly highlight the muscular design of both SUVs. Joining these matte paint options are M light alloy wheels finished in Jet Black with a star-spoke design and measuring 21-inches at the front and 22-inches at the rear.
BMW has also outfitted X5 M Competition and X6 M Competition First Edition models with a host of carbon fiber parts, including the wing mirror caps and rear spoiler. There is also an M carbon fiber engine compartment that comes standard.
As for the inside, First Edition models include BMW Individual Merino fuel leather trim in an exclusive bi-color configuration of Silverstone and Midnight Blue. There are also black Alcantara inserts in the seat bolsters and contrast stitching in Sakhir Orange across the seats and door panels. A BMW Individual headliner in Alcantara and finished in Midnight Blue further adds to the unique appeal of these limited-edition models. Rounding out the unique looks are a host of carbon fiber interior accents and ‘First Edition 1/250’ lettering.
No mechanical modifications have been made. As such, both First Edition models feature a 4.4-liter twin-turbocharged V8 engine that produces 617 hp and 553 lb-ft (750 Nm) of torque.
BMW hasn’t announced pricing details nor has it said which markets the X5 M Competition and X6 M Competition First Edition models will be available in.
