OH MY LORD! What is your take on this pickup truck — based on the BMW X7? The BMW pickup truck you see here will not go into production, rather is a one-off project of the six-cylinder X7 xDrive40i.
Built by 12 trainees from the BMW Group Vocational Training at the Munich location, this unique conversion took ten months and an X7 pre-production test vehicle (that was saved from being scrapped).
The BMW X7 pickup truck features a handcrafted loading area finished in fine-polished wood. With the rear lid open, the total length of the cargo bed spans from 55 inches (1.4 meters) to 79 inches (2.0 meters).
Among other changes is a height-adjustable two-level air suspension, which makes loading up the rear easy, as you can lower the pickup bed.
Painted in Tanzanite Blue metallic and inspired by luxury sport yachts, the colour of the BMW X7 pickup truck develops extra depth when exposed to sunlight.
Compared to the production model, the team has used Carbon Fiber Reinforced Polymer Composites (CFRP) on the roof, cargo bed and the rear doors, resulting in a reduced weight by approximately 200 kilograms.
The performance and engine on the BMW X7 pickup truck is the standard 3.0-liter turbocharged inline-6 rated at 335 horsepower and 330 pound-feet of torque.
Also seen is a BMW F 850 GS on the loading area — an adventure bike that costs around Rs 14 lakh in India. This combination allows to navigate even the remotest corners of the world. Don't you think so? or is there another unbeatable duo? Let us know in the comments.
From The Ultimate Driving Machine to The Ultimate Faithful Companions — the BMW Group vocational trainees get it — that the journey is the destination.
Did You Know?
The McLaren MP4/1 Formula One race car was the first to use a carbon fiber composite chassis in 1981. And BMW is at the forefront of carbon composite innovation; and the electric i3 has the most widespread carbon use in a high-volume production car.
