BMW had a pretty good day at the 2018 Detroit Auto Show. There, we saw the BMW X2, i8 Coupe Facelift and i8 Roadster, among others. However, there’s one car that didn’t make it to Detroit and it’s one that a lot of fans were hoping to see — the BMW X7 Concept.

If you were hoping to see the BMW X7 in person, you’re going to be disappointed. That’s because the X7 Concept that BMW was sending to Detroit was damaged while on a delivery truck. According to Autonews, BMW said that “the SUV was damaged while in transport to Detroit by truck”. So rather than have the BMW X7 Concept on display, a standard 7 Series sedan took its place. Which is disappointing, as a lot of fans, including us, would have liked to have seen it there.

The BMW X7 is slated to be the brand’s most luxurious and most expensive SUV, slotting above both the X5 and X6. It should also be the brand’s new flagship luxury vehicle, being even more premium than the 7 Series sedan. It should come with three-row availability as well as BMW’s latest and greatest luxury and technology.

We haven’t actually seen what the X7 looks like yet, as BMW hasn’t released production photographs, even though it’s currently in production at BMW’s Spartanburg, South Carolina plant. The BMW X7 Concept, though, has drawn a considerable amount of attention, some good and some bad. Some fans like the concept, as it seems futuristic and high-tech, while some feel that it’s odd looking. Admittedly, its squinty headlights and monstrous Kidney Grilles are hilarious, with the latter being large enough to inhale the peasants that get in its way.

It’s disappointing, and unfortunate, that the X7 Concept was too damaged to be shown in Detroit. Don’t fret too much, though, as the production car should debut this year.

    I don’t think the concept X7 did the ‘concept’ any favours. I’ve got great faith that the production version is gonna be nothing short of spectacular.

  2. jason bourne says:

    Considering how ugly the X7 Concept is, you’d think/hope the damage would be an improvement.

    Who designed this Uruk Hai car? Was he previously designing vacuum cleaners? Is Bangle willing to go back to BMW and end this mess? I thought BMW learned their lesson when putting the hockey stick on the side of the 7er, now it mutated into a big chrome gallows.

    It got damaged because someone wanted to kill it before it lays eggs.

    The spectators got spared from watching the horror on 4 wheels. :P

      And we got spared from reading the horror which comes from your comments each time a concept car is exhibited. You can therefore remain in your shackles as doctors have prescribed.

        Dude, why can’t you just lead your own life and stop commenting on things that don’t go inside your pea sized mothball that can’t even be termed as brain?

        Go get a life… i am sure you can be less of a wanker if you give it a try.

          Yes, I do note that such explosions of nonsense are normal in infantile beings such as you who are also buried in plutonic feces.

    It’s difficult to look at. Remove the kidney grill and roundel and add a Lincoln badge. It would look more appropriate. Unlike the Z4 and 8-series, this is one concept that I sincerely hope doesn’t look like that in production version.

    After the first round impressions of car fanatics the car felt embarrassed and ashamed to be seen in public, so it decided to feign injury. The damn thing is the ugliest BMW ever.
