The BMW X7 Dark Shadow Edition is based on the M50i version with a 4.4-liter V8 (530 hp, 750 Nm), eight-speed "automatic", all-wheel drive, sports brakes M Sport and air suspension. Like all representatives of "very black" versions, the Bavarian flagship has lost chrome elements, both on the body and in the interior. All of them, from the radiator grille to the tips on the trapezoidal spouts of the exhaust system are painted in black gloss. The body is painted Frozen Arctic Grey from the BMW Individual set, and complemented by 22-inch black rims with V-shaped spokes and various tires.
The interior is in black and dark blue leather. Door panels, armrests and top of the front panel are in dark blue nappa and alcantara leather, while the bottom of the front panel and backrests of the front seats are in black merino leather. The crossover cabin is equipped with a 12.3-inch dashboard, 12.3-inch multimedia system with support for Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, wireless charging for smartphone, WiFi, steering wheel and heated armrests. Heated, massaged and ventilated captain seats in the front. For an extra fee, two similar seats will be installed in the second row instead of a three-seater sofa. The standard equipment includes all optional packages available for the basic model, including a driving assistance package, a cold weather package and an executive package.
Assembly of the BMW X7 Dark Shadow Edition crossover will begin in August at the plant in Spartanburg, South Carolina. The circulation will be limited to 600 units, 70 of which will be sold in the U.S. market, where the "very black" crossover was estimated at 119,495 dollars. When making a pre-order, Americans must make a deposit of $1,000.
