We wouldn’t say no to a 600-hp BMW X7.
The BMW X7 was finally revealed last week as the automaker’s largest and most lavish SUV yet. Currently, the most powerful variant uses a 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8 that produces 456 hp and 479 lb-ft of torque, enabling the sizeable SUV to hit 0-60 mph in a respectable 5.2 seconds. But is there room for a more potent X7? This render artist certainly thinks so.
X-Tomi has offered a convincing mock-up showing what a BMW X7 M Performance SUV could look like. The BMW X7 already looks imposing thanks to its sheer size, so slapping on some M Performance parts heightens the aggression. Like other BMW M models, the souped-up X7 features larger intakes in the front bumper, wider wheel arches, and a BMW M logo on the gigantic grille.
As far-fetched as it may sound right now, a high-performance BMW X7 M could happen. The automaker admitted that a hardcore X7 M is being considered, but nothing has been confirmed. Still, it gives us hope that this render could become a reality one day.
As for potential powertrains, it would make sense for the X7 M to use the M760Li’s meaty twin-turbo 6.6-liter V12 engine. In the M760Li, this unit produces 600 horsepower, which would enable the X7 M to tread on the toes of the Range Rover Sport SVR and Mercedes-AMG GLS 63.
