What does the new BMW X7 look like? We still don’t know yet but recently rendered images of the luxury SUV by a Russian automotive graphic designer may provide us some ideas on how the BMW X7 would appear in real life.
It has been years since German premium carmaker BMW revealed that it was planning to release a new luxury sports utility vehicle in the persona of the BMW X7, but the company has yet to release official images of the flagship SUV. This could be a clever ploy to further heighten the interest of the driving public to the new BMW.
Today, quite a number of spy images of the new X7 have already been exposed to the public, but the SUV is fully wrapped in a camouflage. That makes it quite hard to single out the details or even imagine the overall appearance of BMW’s newest luxury SUV. Fans, enthusiasts and even future customers are excited to assess for themselves the true appearance of the new BMW X7.
Aksyonov Nikita, a graphic artist from, Saint Petersburg, Russia, posted a number of images on social sharing site Behance. These images show the front, rear and side views of the new BMW X7, as rendered. The renderings of the X7 are so realistic that viewers might think that these are official images of the luxury SUV from BMW. Nikita took inspiration from the spy shots of the X7 as well as the actual images to create realistic renderings of the new SUV.
Whether Nikita’s realistic renderings of the new BMW X7 are close enough to the final design of the production version can be determined once the German premium carmaker officially unveils the vehicle. There have been speculations the BMW is set to unveil the new X7 at the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show in September. It is quite expected that the final production form of new X7 would significantly be different from the X5.
Targeted towards the likes of the Mercedes-Benz GLS, Range Rover even the Bentley Bentayga, the new BMW X7 is expected to be released to the market in 2018. The new BMW X7 will be available in two versions: a regular seven-seater and a $100,000-plus super-luxurious X7 four-seater, which should rival the Bentayga. BMW brand sales chief Ian Robertson has said that the super-luxurious X7 is part of the German carmaker’s expansion plans for its GKL (Grand Klasse) models.
Ludwig Willisch, chief executive of BMW of North America, has revealed that the higher-end X7 would be a niche model that would have a price of between $100,000 and $200,000. BMW will produce both X7s at its Spartanburg site in South Carolina and commence their sales in 2018.
