BMW Made A REAL X7 Pickup – And It Has Room For A Bike, Plus Five Adults

Your eyes are not deceiving you and this is definitely not a rendering. Yes, the most luxurious member of BMW’s crossover family, the X7, has been turned into a pickup truck by none other than the Bavarian automaker itself!

Mind you, it’s only for show purposes, as it has been created for the company’s Motorrad Days, where it will be presented alongside many motorcycles.

Based on a prototype, the study has BMW’s vocational trainees behind it, who collaborated with the Munich plant’s Concept Vehicle Construction and Model Technology divisions. It took them 10 months to complete it, which means that work began one month before the X7 was first shown to the world last October.

The team behind the ambitious project has made it 10 cm (4 in) longer compared to the SUV, and the length of the bed varies from 1.4 to 2.0 meters (55-79 in), closed and open, respectively. Furthermore, they have used CFRP on certain components, such as the roof, rear doors and rear lid, which has shaved 200 kg (441 lbs) from the weight of the X7.

Retaining its luxury ambience, the interior has seating for five, which will be put to good use, as the trainees plan to take it out for a spin after its premiere, or even go for a trip to the mountains in it.

In order to highlight its practicality, BMW has loaded it up with an F 850 GS bike, whose wheels touch the handcrafted teakwood the bed is fitted with, while the Tanzanite Blue metallic color, inspired by yachting sports and signed by BMW Individual, completes the look.

    That side profile just like the very thought of this monstrosity is TRAGIC. https://media3.giphy.com/media/6qlp8V7dHioEM/giphy.gif

    The worst pickup side profile even

  • Rocket

    Not pretty, and that’s with the photog’s conscious effort to avoid pics of the front end.

  • Porkopolis

    Seems like they were quite meticulous about the build, up until they phoned it in for the taillights.

    • Andrewthecarguy

      I thought it was from the Cullinan for a second. Perhaps a rejected option during the RR’s development.

    • Mynameis Taylor

      i really like the tail lights

  • JonPaul

    Well that looks horrifying to say the least.

    BMW long term reliability in a pickup. wow. I’m sure it will depreciate as well as an X7 too. I think I’ll just stay with the mainstream stuff for now (or forever).

    • Richard Alexander

      Everything with 4 or 5 doors depreciates fast. Look at a 10 year old Cayenne Turbo vs 10 year old 911 resale value. You can do this with pretty much any marque.

      • Sukhoi31m3

        So true!

    • Matt

      They’re not actually going to put in production so you wouldn’t be able to buy one anyway.

    El Camino is making a return? LOL

    • U8INIT

      Much of lol

  • exeptor

    After 8th series grand couple they had to do something just to remind us that the problem in design area is still massive. Keeping in mind that despite M2 they don’t really have anything really passionate I think that BMW is heading to a very dangerous places – in case that SUV madness goes down this will bring massive problems for them (OK … the rest as well but still). And we are talking about one of the most (at least was) passionate brand in the history.
