Currently reading: BMW X5, X6 and X7 gain dark-themed special editions
Changes include unique exterior paints, bespoke alloy wheels and extra technology

BMW's range-topping SUV trio have gained a pair of limited-edition specifications with unique exterior body colours, design features and additional equipment.  

The X5 and X6 each receive Black Vermillion models, offering a Frozen Black exterior paint with red accents, an updated grille featuring red bars, exclusive 22in alloy wheels and an M Sport exhaust system. The models also feature high-gloss Shadowline exterior trim, red M Sport brake calipers and BMW’s Laserlight technology.

Inside, Black Vermillion models feature full black leather trim with red accents found on the floor mats and rear seats. The cars also gain front comfort seats, sun-protection glass, Alcantara rooflining and added detailing to the car’s cupholder cover.

The X7 M50i gets its own, similarly specified limited-edition model: the Frozen Black Edition. Like the Black Vermillion package, it brings Frozen Black paint, black 22in light alloy wheels, laser lights, the M Sport exhaust system, sun-protection glass, Shadowline exterior trim and M Sport brake calipers. 

The X7’s interior also gets some changes, with the same Alcantara rooflining found on Black Vermillion models in addition to crystal glass, though the firm’s Comfort Plus Pack, Technology Plus Pack and panoramic sunroof are still listed as optional extras. 

Just five X7 M50i Frozen Black models will be built for the UK and Ireland with production starting from August, while 50 Black Vermillion models will go into production from September.

Coming to the training ground of a second division football club near you soon, and in five years time the most successful drug dealer on the town council estate will be able to afford one second hand. On the plus side even the dimmest police officer will know which vehicle to stop and search.

No Vantablack option? Disappointing

(look it up, swallows light)

Oh Dear God - Stop with the Black editions already.

Strewth... it has been done to death.

Thank you Audi for probably starting it.

Now if I win the lottery, it seems I can't buy any desirable model by anyone without Black instead of chrome or other trim, with this Black liberally augmented by Black accents surrounded by Black venting enhanced by Carbon Black (as a £billion upgrade) blades and special Black tyres (no, wait..? ), but also lifestyle affirming Black C pillars offset by charmingly individual contrasting Black roof panel with matching Black windows (ok: dark); or why not buy the exclusive complete Black on Black competition special, though you may as well step up to the Individual Designo Black pack with free Black guttering but not including the must have Black Head and Tail lights with real Black bulb technology.

The good news is these will die off eventually and no one will be able to sell on their lookey - likey full size plastic Tonka toy, or the leasing companies will have to auction them at 25p and up.

That's a 60+ old"s view of things, but let's see if I'm wrong. :(
