BMW X2 Rebel Edition Is A $73K Crossover With Tattoos

BMW Italy is celebrating the launch of the all-new X2 by introducing the Rebel Edition.

Designed to capture the “sporting and rebellious nature” of the company’s latest crossover, the X2 Rebel Edition is based on the X2 xDrive25d in M Sport X trim. Production will be limited to five units and each model will have a Galvanic Gold exterior with customizations done by internationally renowned tattoo artist Pietro Seddon.

BMW says each model will have a unique series of tattoos as the X2 says “No to the constraints of ephemeral status, artificial fashion, easy likes, fake news and wasted time.”

Speaking of the tattoos, one will be located on the front armrest which is upholstered in yellow leather. The second tattoo resides on the left side C-pillar and is “extremely special” as it has been made using thermochromic paint.

As BMW explains, the exterior tattoo reacts to changes in temperature. The tattoo is invisible at temperatures above 15° C (59° F) but as conditions get colder the tattoo will “magically” appear.

Besides the tattoos, the model has a Hexagon M Sport X fabric interior with Alcantara inserts and yellow contrast stitching. The crossover also comes fully loaded with the Audio, Business Plus, Connectivity, and Comfort packages.

Power is provided by a 2.0-liter TwinPower Turbo diesel engine that produces 231 PS (170 kW) and 450 Nm (331 lb-ft) of torque. It is connected to an eight-speed automatic transmission which allows the all-wheel drive crossover to accelerate from 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) in 6.7 seconds.

The X2 Rebel Edition went on sale earlier today and each model costs €60,000 ($73,518). The crossover can be purchased online now through February 12th.
