The BMW X7 is certainly a capable vehicle when it comes to hauling the family, a weekend worth of stuff and maybe even some bikes on the back. But what if you want to haul around a motorcycle without having to deal with a trailer? BMW vocational trainees working in cooperation with the Concept Vehicle Construction and Model Technology divisions at the Munich plant had the same idea, so they set about converting an X7 into a one-off pick-up truck. Much like the BMW apprentices that restored the 1600 GT convertible, the work is absolutely stellar, and the final product more than lives up to the BMW name. The handcrafted loading area has a fine-polished wood finish that looks great even with a motorcycle in it, and it has a height-adjustable, two-level air suspension. The entire process from concept to show quality car took only tenth months. Unfortunately, BMW has no plans for “series implementation” at this time.
