Curiously, the rendering depicts the pre-facelift model.
Mansory has released early images of a proposed body kit for the BMW X7 luxury SUV.
While the controversial tuning company says the future enhancements are for the recently launched LCI model (BMW speak for facelift), the firm has curiously rendered the design on the older model, which features single-piece headlights. Whatever the reason for this faux pas may be, it's clear to see Mansory plans to make a few changes to the full-size Bimmer.
Up front, we can see the sizeable Kidney grilles have been reduced in size and are now supplemented by two smaller vents sited beneath. While the X7 is one of the few BMWs that can pull off the larger nostrils, the smaller items look more appealing.
The new front bumper is eye-catching, with oversized vents, sporty valance, and unnecessary styling add-ons.
The slab-sided X7 by Mansory boasts a widebody kit, with wheel arch extensions integrating neatly into the bumpers and side skirts. The vents seen on the bumpers are repeated on the inner parts of the front and rear wheel arches and, if we're honest, ruin what could have been a surprisingly subtle design from Mansory.
Round back, four prominent tailpipes jut out of the revised rear bumper. Dual spoilers - sited below and above the rear windscreen - finish off everything, while a pair of multi-spoke wheels give the large SUV some sporting flair. The tuner says up to 11 wheel designs will be available, ranging up to 24 inches in size.
We're curious to see whether the body kit will be available for pre- and post-facelift models, as the bumper displayed here wouldn't work with the new model's split-headlight design.
The turquoise shade seen here isn't particularly appealing, but the company will probably offer the vehicle in an array of bizarre color schemes and finishes.
No interior shots have been shared, but Mansory says it will carry out any customer requests pertaining to cabin customization. There's no word yet on whether the upgrade package includes a power bump, but, with 523 horsepower and 553 lb-ft of torque, the M60i derivative should prove quick enough.
We're guessing these enhancements won't come cheap. We'll reserve our judgment for the final product, but we can't help but feel that if you want a unique X7 that stands out from the crowd, the new Alpina XB7 will be more satisfying.
Then again, some will adore the Mansory-fettled X7 and its ability to grab attention - good or bad.
