BMW has been pretty busy with cars wearing a "6" this year following the rollouts of the new 6 Series Gran Coupe and, more recently, the high-performance M6. Now the automaker is getting ready to introduce two low-volume variants of the 6 Series Coupe and the X6 crossover. The 2013 BMW 650i Coupe Frozen Silver Edition and 2013 BMW Individual X6 Performance Edition are both limited-production models aimed at showing off exclusive tailoring available through BMW Individual.

BMW X6 Performance EditionThe first of these to hit the showrooms will be the BMW Individual X6 Performance Edition, which will be limited to 100 total units split between xDrive35i and xDrive50i models. The former starts at $81,695, the latter at $92,895. BMW Individual adds its exclusive Pearl Silver metallic paint, 20-inch wheels and black chrome exhaust tips on the outside, while the cabin gets black Alcantara and leather appointments with orange contrast stitching. Carbon Leather Wrapped Trim from BMW Individual adorns the instrument panel and center console. Additional power comes via the M Performance Package, while otherwise optional equipment packages are made standard to up the level of amenities.

Limited to just 55 total units, the BMW 650i Coupe Frozen Silver Edition is available with rear-wheel-drive for $99,295 or xDrive for $102,965. This car starts off with BMW Individual's Frozen Silver paint, M aerodynamic kit, 20-inch wheels, black chrome exhaust outlets and black-painted mirror caps and brake calipers. The Frozen Silver Edition gets similar Alcantara and leather treatments as the X6 Performance Edition, but it uses black Nappa leather with wood accents.

The Individual X6 Performance Edition will go on sale in December with the 650i Coupe Frozen Silver Edition hitting dealers in mid-January.

      The 6 series looks like a Pontiac Grand Am. :-(

      98% of new cars sold today (based on what I see on the lots) are white, black or silver. I honestly don't give a rat's azz about a 'special' silver as each brand sells each car in 10 shades of it already. Do we really need another one?

      I'm sorry. That car is just not attractive. AT. ALL.

      Ugly 6-series... uglier with the black plastic side-view mirrors found on entry level cars.

      I don't know how BMW went from the gorgeous 850s and 740s to the ugly cars they have today.

        +1! BMW frustrates the poo out of me. The 8 was stunning and modern where the 6 looks retro and bloated. This is not progress. Neither is electric pwr steering, idrive or pig-butt SUVs.

      the aggressiveness of the lower bumper does not match the dull boring headlights worst thing on this car by far are those frumpy headlights...the concept was awesome, what we got was this boring piece.

      I'm pretty sure this article was posted yesterday. It's pathetic that we've reached the point where yet another shade of silver is something exciting to make an exclusive edition out of...BMW already offers about 9 grey scale shades, but this one is special!

      Way, way, way too much going on with the side panels of that coupe, especially between the wheels. It's a shame too because the basic lines are really quite good. This is not a car you get in silver. You get it in a very dark color to hide the design house disaster that took place.
