BMW has been pretty busy with cars wearing a "6" this year following the rollouts of the new 6 Series Gran Coupe and, more recently, the high-performance M6. Now the automaker is getting ready to introduce two low-volume variants of the 6 Series Coupe and the X6 crossover. The 2013 BMW 650i Coupe Frozen Silver Edition and 2013 BMW Individual X6 Performance Edition are both limited-production models aimed at showing off exclusive tailoring available through BMW Individual.
The first of these to hit the showrooms will be the BMW Individual X6 Performance Edition, which will be limited to 100 total units split between xDrive35i and xDrive50i models. While Canadian pricing for these models is not yet available, these are the US prices that were announced yesterday. Expect Canadian pricing just as soon as it is available. The former starts at US$81,695, the latter at US$92,895. BMW Individual adds its exclusive Pearl Silver metallic paint, 20-inch wheels and black chrome exhaust tips on the outside, while the cabin gets black Alcantara and leather appointments with orange contrast stitching. Carbon Leather Wrapped Trim from BMW Individual adorns the instrument panel and center console. Additional power comes via the M Performance Package, while otherwise optional equipment packages are made standard to up the level of amenities.
Limited to just 55 total units, the BMW 650i Coupe Frozen Silver Edition is available with rear-wheel-drive for US$99,295 or xDrive for US$102,965. This car starts off with BMW Individual's Frozen Silver paint, M aerodynamic kit, 20-inch wheels, black chrome exhaust outlets and black-painted mirror caps and brake calipers. The Frozen Silver Edition gets similar Alcantara and leather treatments as the X6 Performance Edition, but it uses black Nappa leather with wood accents.
The Individual X6 Performance Edition will go on sale in December with the 650i Coupe Frozen Silver Edition hitting dealers in mid-January.
