This is the BMW XM Label Red by Larte Design – the most powerful and one of the rarest BMW vehicles ever designed.

There are only 500 units in the world, 15 if we’re only counting the ones with the body kit.

The BMW XM is only the second car developed entirely and exclusively as an M Car, after the BMW M1 in 1978.

By the way, most people may not know this, but Paul Walker used to own a BMW M1 at one point.

But we digress.

A full-size SUV, loosely related to the BMW X7, the XM Label Red is available with a 3.0-liter twin-turbo inline-six and a 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8, which is what this model is.

It delivers a grand total of 748 horsepower, sent to all four wheels via an 8-speed automatic.

More importantly, thanks to the 1,00 Nm torque (738 lb-ft), it does 0 to 60 mph (0-100 km/h) in 3.8 seconds, and it can complete the quarter mile in just 11.7 seconds.

The BMW XM Label Red has a unique body kit, and a custom ‘soundtrack’ to go with it

Visually, the first thing that stands out is the oversized kidney grille at the front.

It’s painted matte red, offset against the matte black paint of the body, which is also adorned with 36 unique carbon pieces.

The interior follows the same theme with black leather upholstery for the center console, the dashboard, and the door panels, with contrast red stitching.

The lower part of the seats is covered in black leather while the upper part is trimmed in red sports fabric, which is a nice touch.

And there’s something else that’s totally unheard of about this car.

In addition to the ‘organic’ V8 soundtrack, the car also has an artificial one, created by Hollywood score composer Hans Zimmer.

BMW teamed up with Hans Zimmer a while back.

The goal is to enhance the engine noise for cars that do have an engine, such as XM Label Red, and create a custom soundtrack for cars that don’t, ie, electric cars.

It’s an interesting idea, but it’s such a shame no one else is doing that.

For now.
