BMW has just announced two limited edition SUVs in the form of the Black Vermilion Edition X5 and X6.

Both versions are based on their respective X5 xDrive40i and X6 xDrive40i models and receive a paint job that Darth Vader himself would be proud of – Frozen Black Metallic. This color scheme is contrasted by a striking set of 22” Orbit Grey alloy wheels, a red-highlighted kidney bar grille, and red brake calipers. The aggressive body styling is also afforded by numerous upgrades borrowed from the M Sport line.

The elegance also makes its way to the interior with red-stitched merino leather upholstery, an M Alcantara anthracite roof liner, Black Vermilion Edition badging, and a crystal glass application known as Crafted Clarity. The X5 and X6 will be limited to 350 examples (50 if you live in Canada or the U.K.) and will start at $82,300 USD. There’s also a BMW X7 M50i Frozen Black Edition as part of this series but in extremely limited numbers. Those interested can head over to BMW to order now where delivery is expected to take place in September.
