Rumor: BMW to Build Ultra Luxury X7

Not only is BMW preparing to produce the luxurious X7 crossover. It’s secretly planning an even more high-end four seater version of the crossover.


For years sources have told us BMW has long wanted to add an X7 but only if the market could support it. Now it would appear that BMW believes there’s not only a market for one high-end crossover but two thanks to a recent interview with Ian Robertson spoke in the Automotive News. According to the interview “BMW will sell two versions of its new X7 crossover — the already-announced seven-seater and a $100,000-plus four-seater with a distinct look, said brand sales boss Ian Robertson.” This lines up with the rumors of an ultra luxury SUV scheduled for release sometime around 2019. The idea would be to leverage the X7’s development with only a modified body and interior. The results will be a more a longer body with a more luxurious and roomy interior.

It’s worth noting that the new X7 will ride on a modified version of the GKL models (short for Grand Klasse in German) while the forthcoming Rolls Royce Cullinan SUV will will use an aluminum space frame construction.

    It will be one model but the X7 will be offered in two configurations to accommodate seven and the more ultra luxurious four seater. One way to look at X7 is to look at the BMW 7er which like the 7er will also be offered with Li extended wheelbase.

    The X7 will also be offered for the first time in the luxury SUV market (German brands) a V12 flagship just like the 7er. As of now there is no definite inclusion for an X8 but it is much under discussion.

    The next Gran-Klasse-Luxury vehicle currently being developed is the 9er luxury-plus sedan. Again to be offered in standard and extended wheelbase. Having took the Vision Future Luxury concept across the globe to show prospective clients one thing is abundantly clear that this must be a car to drive and not just be driven in. This is impossible in the Maybach because you are easily mistaken for the chauffeur. 9er is in a different category from the Maybach but exclusivity will be the order of the day. Not every BMW dealer will sell the 9er only select dealerships globally will offer the car.

    The 9er will Be BMWs flagship for superior technology from materials in construction to sustainable performance orientated drivetrains. The first of which will be offered in a variant of the upcoming new Rolls-Royce Phantom. Which for the first time aligns RR aluminium Spaceframe construction with BMWi Carbon knowhow.
