Unapologetically Powerful - The BMW X5 M Black Fire Edition

Unapologetically Powerful - The BMW X5 M Black Fire Edition

When was the last time you took full credit for your own success and happiness? When was the last time you took in a compliment without having to thank your entire family and co-workers first? When was the last time you felt powerful? This may sound crazy, but it took a BMW X5 M Black Fire Edition to remind me that "I've got the power"!   
"I think power is useless unless you know you have it." - Said Shonda Rhimes in a recent interview. "I realized I was never going to get any further than I was if I just allowed myself to be the very nice girl who wrote stuff. And I had other things that I wanted to do. All of the things that are possible are never going to happen if you're busy waiting for someone to give you something. You have to take it."
Taking on this BMW X5 M Black Fire Edition was like putting on a Prada suit and red bottom heels. On the outside, the vehicle has all the distinguishing features of the BMW X5 M body with details such as the carbon mirror caps and forged 21-inch black M alloy wheels specific to the Black Fire Edition. Yet it's underneath the Black Sapphire Metallic paint and that iconic black M grill that lays a potent 4.4L V8 engine eager to roar and be heard.    
    This Sports Activity Vehicle is specked with all the sophisticated features you would expect in a premium vehicle in its class; SiriusXM Satellite, Apple CarPlay, Wireless Charging, Multifunctional/Ventilated Seats, Park Assistant, Surround View and Wifi Hotspot to name a few. 
The steering wheel provides absolute control in the eye-catching cockpit, allowing shortcuts to all the commands and drive modes. Functional and easy to manage from your line of vision on the Head-Up Display, you have access to everything from the built-in Audible app, to calling on your personal assistant known as the BMW Concierge; anytime, anywhere.  
Spacious enough for grown teenagers, and all lifestyle gear and accessories, the interior is upholstered in the fine-grain Merino leather, in Black and Mugello Red with the contrasting red stitching on the underlining and central console. The piano black finish trim adds the final touches to the stylish interior emphasizing again it's special edition. 
    Just like that Prada suit, this BMW X5 M delivers the power and confidence you want on the road. 
At a top performance of 576hp with fuel consumption of 11.1L/100km, the vehicle is surprisingly light and agile. The M TwinPower turbo engine is shamelessly loud and extremely gratifying. The xDrive four-wheel drive system provides the ultimate traction control technology while surpassing stability, handling and safety standards. The magical M also includes M compound brakes, 8-speed M transmission and Dynamic Stability Control; allowing you to change the driving feel from super sporty to comfort and adapt to any driving situation and preference.  
    In that same interview, Shonda said; "The minute you realize or accept the concept that, Yes, I am a powerful person—guess what? The people who need to treat you that way to get things done—the business guys, and the money guys, and the finance people—they fall in line." The BMW X5 M Black Fire Edition is unapologetically powerful and intuitive, providing a truly emotional driving experience. Reminding you every day that power is within you and that it looks terrific on you.
