Two new BMW high-performance models coming
BMW and performance are synonymous and the German automaker has just announced two new models for driving enthusiasts to get excited about. They are both limited edition models and will be coming to the U.S. later this year and early 2013. But those who want the new performance editions will need to get their orders in quickly because a very limited number will be produced. And they won’t come cheap as pricing reflects their limited status.
The two new models just announced are the 2013 BMW Individual X6 Performance Edition and the 2013 BMW 6 Series Coupe Frozen Silver Edition. But the two editions will be super rare as only 100 copies of the BMW Individual X6 Performance Edition and 55 copies of the BMW 6 Series Coupe Frozen Silver Edition will be produced for U.S. drivers.
BMW Individual X6 Performance Edition
The 2013 BMW X6 Edition is about performance and will get the M Performance package engine upgrade which provides increases of 15 hp, and an additional 30 lb-ft of torque in the X6 xDrive35i and an additional 40 hp, and 30 lb-ft of torque in the X6 xDrive50i.
Outside it comes with a special Pearl Silver metallic paint, 20-inch Y-Spoke wheels, and black chrome exhaust tips. Inside, it features a special Black Alcantara and Leather with Sakhir Orange contrast stitching on the seats, dashboard, floor mats and door panels. Additionally, the dashboard and console are finished with a carbon leather wrapped trim.
Other features will include a Premium Package, Cold Weather Package, Technology Package, soft close doors, running boards, five-seat option, satellite radio with one-year subscription, BMW Apps, LED headlights (X6 xDrive50i only), and Premium Sound Package (X6 xDrive50i only).

The 2013 BMW 6 Series Coupe Frozen Silver Edition is based on the 650i Coupe and 650i xDrive Coupe and is designed for winter fun. It comes with special exterior treatments like Frozen Silver paint, contrasting black mirror caps, 20-inch bi-color Ferric Gray gloss M Performance wheels, and M Sport Package. Other features include M aerodynamic kit, sport exhaust system, dark chrome exhaust tips, and black painted brake calipers.
Inside, it will come with Black Nappa leather and Gray Popular wood upholstery and trim, and the xDrive all-wheel drive models will feature a Cold Weather Package, which adds a heated steering wheel and ski storage bag for trips to the slopes. The optional Executive Package will include soft close doors, power rear sunshade, front ventilated seats, leather dashboard, contrast stitching, and ceramic secondary controls, head-up display, smartphone integration, and BMW Apps.
Pricing for the two Limited Edition models
BMW has announced pricing on the two models and the German automaker says they are “tailored for the discriminating enthusiast.” And the new pricing certainly reflects that. Fifty Limited Edition copies of the 2013 BMW X6 xDrive35i, will have an MSRP of $81,695, and fifty Limited Edition copies of the 2013 BMW X6 xDrive50i will have an MSRP of $92,895 including destination and handling.
It gets even more exclusive with the BMW 6 Series Coupe Frozen Silver Edition. There will be only 55 copies total produced in two trims; the BMW 650i Coupe with an MSRP of $99,295 and the BMW 650i xDrive Coupe priced at $102,695, including destination and handling.
