BMW will offer a 155-unit limited run of special edition 2013 X6 crossovers and 6 Series coupes for the U.S. market, showcasing the brand’s “Individual” program.

It’s a program tailored toward people who want a BMW can’t stand the idea of being lumped in with so many other passé luxury car buyers. Unfortunately for them, it comes at a hefty premium. The limited run Individual X6 Performance Editions and 6 Series Frozen Silver Editions come doused in matte paint and loaded with fancier interior materials. All of that costs $99,295 for the 6 Series in rear-wheel drive or $81,695 for the six-cylinder X6 with prices climbing from there.

So what does the extra cash command? Loads of features that come in other packages. In the 6 Series’ case that includes 20-inch M Performance wheels, a body kit from the same family as well as a sport exhaust system. There’s also an M steering wheel, head-up display, ventilated seats and more. Essentially, it’s a conglomeration of goodies that a 650i could have anyway, but dressed a little differently.

The same goes for the Individual X6 Performance Edition, albeit with modifications that boost its performance. The aforementioned V6 model climbs modestly from 300 hp and 300 lb-ft of torque to 315 and 330 respectively. It’s more entertaining V8 sibling, on the other hand, grows from 400 hp and 450 lb-ft to 440 and 480.

Mind you, that power increase comes courtesy of BMW’s performance package — something any X6 buyer can choose. Just like the 6 Series, BMW chucks almost every option it can, adds carbon fiber textured leather and faux suede-trimmed seats with orange stitching.
