The BMW 7 Series is already highly sought after but nonetheless, the German marque is giving it a more exclusive variant for the Russian market, and they are calling it the 7 Series Individual Edition Black Ice. It’s only available on orders. The special edition features a ton of unique features inside and out, making it truly stand out from the rest.
The Black Ice name was derived from the model’s Frosty Black metallic finish. And it is not just your typical black paint. It has got a unique painting technology that gives it transformative properties. This is because the base metallic paint is coated with a special matte varnish. So under the right lighting, its 7 Series’ silhouette is amplified with its unique shine.
Apart from the distinct paint job, the BMW 7 Series was built with an aerodynamic M Sport package. This package has a double grille design, gloss black door handles, and a gloss black boot lid. To complete the exterior design, the Black Ice 7 Series now sits on a set of 20-inch BMW Individual V-spoke 649s with different sized tires, and of course, a body kit by M Sport. Other features that are already included on the standard edition are laser headlamps, parking assist with a remote control module, a 360-degree vision system, and an Executive Drive Pro package with roadway scanning.
Of course, the cabin also gets the same Black Ice treatment, starting from the black finish in the cabin, as well as a black on black BMW badge that blends in the interior. There are certain elements from BMW Individual that ensure that the cabin looks luxurious - from the Nappa black leather trim, Black Piano lacquer bits, and Anthracite Alcantara upholstery on the ceiling. This is finished off by an exclusive “Black Ice” badge found on the passenger dash. It still features the iDrive system that controls the infotainment system with gesture control, that also has wireless charging features for smartphones.
As mentioned earlier, Russian customers can order the BMW 7 Series Individual Black Ice edition in their local dealerships starting later this month, though the automaker has not announced the final price for this edition. But we are guessing that it might cost over $100,000 because the 2018 base 740i can be had for a little over $84,000 in the United States, while the 750i that is equipped with a V8 engine is priced at around $97,000.
The BMW 7 Series Individual Black Ice was created as a collaboration between BMW Group Russia and BMW Individual department, only for Russian customers. This special edition model will definitely catch the attention of affluent driving enthusiasts.
