Mumbai, May 31 (FN Bureau) Luxury car Major, BMW India on Monday launched the BMW X7 M50d ‘Dark Shadow’ Edition at Rs 2,02,00,000 (ex-showroom, Delhi). The model is available as a completely built-up unit (CBU). Only 500 units are produced in the world. The BMW X7 M50d is powered by a 2993-cc, three-litre six-cylinder diesel engine which produces an output of 400 hp and a maximum torque of 760 Nm at 2,000 – 3,000 rpm. The car accelerates from 0 -100 kmph in just 5.4 seconds. The superior engine performance is accompanied by the emotionally powerful sound of the M Sport exhaust system.
The eight-speed steptronic sport automatic transmission performs smooth, almost imperceptible gearshifts. The new BMW X7 M50d comes as standard with the M Sport differential and a model-specific chassis set-up to sharpen the car’s agility and steering precision, giving it the unmistakable character of an M Performance model, but redefined for the luxury segment. The Frozen Arctic Grey metallic exclusive to Dark Shadow edition gets an elaborate body finish and was used for the first time in a BMW X model. The expressive paint finish in body columns, exterior mirror bases, a black chrome finish on the frame and the bars of the BMW kidney grille create a subtle contrast to the matt shimmering body. The bold impression is also underlined by the BMW Individual roof rail high gloss shadow line. Dynamic SAV character is emphasized by aerodynamically optimized bodywork elements of the M Sport package as standard. New BMW Laserlight makes a striking impression and distributes light perfectly. Another exclusive feature is the 22-inch M light-alloy wheels in V-spoke design with a Jet-Black matt finish and fitted with mixed tyres.
On the inside, the SAV packs a six-seater configuration including two captain-style Comfort seats for the second row. Driver and front passenger enjoy the sporty flair with electrically adjustable comfort seats with memory function. Active seat ventilation in front seats reduces stiffness and fatigue by continuously adjusting the seat surface. The M leather steering wheel and BMW Individual equipment provide highest level of exclusivity. Superior BMW Individual Merino Full Leather upholstery comes in ‘night blue/black’ two-tone with contrasting seams, as does the BMW Individual roof liner in night blue with 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. In addition, BMW Individual interior trim finishers in Fineline Black with aluminium inlays contribute to the aura.
The large Sky Lounge Panoramic glass sunroof extends till the third row. The car has five-zone air conditioning with extended features. Soft-close function for doors adds to increased levels of comfort. The highlight in the interior is ‘Crafted Clarity’ which is a host of operational features crafted in exquisite glass that embellish the insert of the gear selector, the iDrive control wheel, the audio control button and the start/stop button. Part of BMW ConnectedDrive technologies include Gesture Control, Display Key, Wireless Charging and Wireless Apple CarPlay/Android Auto. The modern cockpit concept BMW Live Cockpit Professional running on latest BMW Operating System 7.0 includes 3D Navigation, a 12.3-inch digital instrument display behind the steering wheel and a 12.3-inch Control Display. The interior also gets Harman Kardon surround sound system with 16 speakers.
