BMW has revealed the limited edition "X6 M Design Edition" model. It's limited to just 100 units and features cosmetic enhancements, with no performance upgrades announced.

On the outside it adds black kidney grilles, carbon fiber front splitters, carbon fiber rear spoiler, rear diffuser, 21" M Performance wheels (Style 310M) and optional M Performance stripes.

The inside features two tone Black / Mugello Red leather dashboard and matching seats, contrast stitching in Mugello Red and piano black trim. An individually numbered plaque on the dash indicates the limited edition status.

here we go again...like M3 had 30 special editions in its last year of production.
throw in some light weight components and 50 bhp and them they become meaningful (like m3 crt and others)

Sadly, all 100 of them would probably have been on pre-order by 'enthusiasts' a long time ago..

BMW please stop diluting the ///M brand name.

You are destroying so much of it's value.

M is not a design house, it's for performance

///M is the tip of the spear when it comes to ground breaking stitching technology. We enthusiasts dont want true performance upgrades. We want multi colored stitching in our headrests and stickers on the outside of our ///M SUV's!!!!

I don't understand the purpose of these models. Yes, the stitching is nice and the dashboard accents unique. But is this really necessary. This thing is so big and heavy looking that the front spoiler can barely even be made out in the pictures. I appreciate these types of efforts but this car is a bit too much.

Anyway around it. They will sell and the M brand will be dilluted just a little bit more.

I've just had a little sick in my mouth. As if the stock X6M isn't ugly and pointless enough...

I don't think you can tell BMW M what it can and can't do lol.

They want to do it, they did it, here it is. There's only 100 of them out there so don't worry about it too much. It's not like they have stopped production of M cars and they are only building these types of cars now!

I believe the "please" implies he is asking and not telling.

Of course BMW wants to do it. More M sport and M performance garbage for gullible people to buy means more profits.

He said M is NOT a design house. BMW M think it is. That's what I was referring to.
