BMW is hard at work readying a new flagship SUV that will sit above the X5. Labelled X7, this new offering is currently under development, as seen in these spy shots.

 

The X7 will be based on the same CLAR architecture which made its debut in the latest-gen 7 Series. For the former, the platform will be heavily strengthened to handle the added bulk. Some of the suspension bits will be sourced from the X5 while both rear-wheel drive and xDrive AWD systems are going to be offered.

Inside, the X7 will offer the most luxurious cabin ever seen in a BMW. The quality levels are expected to surpass that of the new 7 Series.

Under the hood, the X7 will get six- and eight-cylinder units as well as a plug-in hybrid derivative. On top of the range there will be a V12-equipped model featuring an upgraded version of the 6-litre unit which currently makes 544bhp and 750Nm of torque.

The X7 will be assembled at BMW’s Spartanburg factory in South Carolina, US where they plan on investing $1 billion until late 2016 to boost capacity. The X7 is expected to be built at an annual production rate of 45,000 cars.
