Mr Vikram Pawah, President, BMW Group India said, “The BMW X7 is a statement of the luxury class – the flagship of the X Range. It opens up a brand-new dimension in luxurious driving pleasure and is designed to elevate every moment of the journey. With its unique BMW Individual design and equipment features, the new BMW X7 ‘Dark Shadow’ Edition underlines both the bold appearance and the luxury ambience of our largest SAV. It serves to enhance its ultra-exclusivity with limited editions of just 500 units worldwide. The precisely coordinated details of the design and features give it the status of a collector’s item. With the BMW X7 ‘Dark Shadow’ Edition, the possibilities are truly limitless.”
On the exterior, the highlight is a new metallic Frozen Arctic Grey paint finish, paired with a black chrome finish on elements like the kidney grille, air intake, exhaust surrounds. ORVMs, window frames, and the B and C pillars. The wheels too get exclusive 22-inch M light-alloy wheels in V-spoke design finished in matte Jet-Black fitted with mixed tyres.
Inside, the car gets a dual-tone night blue and black colour scheme. The upholstery is made up of premium BMW individual Merino leather. The roof-liner too has a night-blue Alcantara finish. The upper part of the instrument panel and door armrests are covered with Nappa leather in night blue. Black Merino Leather is used in the lower section of the instrument panel and on the front backrests. The M-leather steering wheel adds to the premium feel of the cabin. The centre console’s unique design is underscored by BMW Individual interior trim finishers in Piano Black finish bearing an edition logo.
Powering the limited edition X7 is the 3.0L, six-cylinder diesel engine that puts out 400 PS and 760 Nm peak torque. The engine is mated to an eight-speed Steptronic sport automatic transmission.
