BMW X5 M and X6 M First Editions break cover

BMW’s new X5 M & X6 M Competition First Editions limited to just two units each

21 Oct 2020

BMW Australia has ripped the covers off of its latest X5 M and X6 M Competition duo, with the ‘First Edition’ versions offering an unrivalled level of exclusivity, albeit six months after their donor vehicles first arrived here.


Limited to just two examples of each, the First Edition X5 M and X6 M Competitions will arrive Down Under early next year, comprising four of just 500 units available globally.


Flaunting unique paint colours and finish, the First Editions also roll on unique black M light-alloy wheels and brandish carbon-fibre body panels.


Under the bonnet resides the same twin-turbocharged 4.4-litre V8 petrol engine, still good for 460kW/750Nm but this time adorned with an M Carbon engine compartment cover for an extra sense of occasion when opening the bonnet.


0-100km/h takes the same 3.8 seconds as before with drive still sent to all four wheels via an eight-speed automatic transmission.


The unique and aggro touches have been continued within the cabin with the First Editions boasting a two-tone Silverstone/Midnight Blue BMW Individual Merino full leather interior, black Alcantara inserts in the seat bolsters, contrast orange stitching, BMW Individual Alcantara headliner, carbon-fibre trim inserts and “First Edition 1/250” lettering.


Despite there being just two of each variant headed to Australia, BMW’s local subsidiary has elected to reveal the relevant pricing and full specifications list early next year ahead of their arrival with sales only possible via the BMW Shop.


For reference, the regular X5 M and X6 M Competitions come as standard with BMW Live Cockpit Professional, a 12.3-inch M Multifunction digital instrument cluster, 12.3-inch infotainment screen, Apple CarPlay compatibility, wireless phone charging, Harman Kardon surround sound system, ambient interior lighting, automatic four-zone climate-control air-conditioning, BMW Gesture Control, BMW Individual instrument panel finished in ‘walknappa’ leather, ConnectedDrive services, DAB+ digital radio, and heated seats with lumbar support.


BMW Laserlight, Parking Assistant Plus, Comfort Access with proximity function, soft-close doors, a panoramic sunroof, temperature-controlled cupholders and a tyre pressure monitoring system are also included while safety equipment consists of BMW’s Driving Assistant Professional suite of advanced driver-assist systems, Intelligent Personal Assistant and Reversing Assistant.


BMW Australia has sold 1930 X5s and 450 X6s so far this year ending September, accounting for a combined 19.7 per cent share of the $70,000-plus large SUV segment.
