Whether you’re running a restaurant or a car manufacturing company, profit is everything. Just like how fast food chains introduce seasonal menus and innovate new set meals, car companies are also doing everything they can to cater to the needs and requirements of every single customer.
That’s why cars like the GLC Coupe, the GLE Coupe, the X4 and X6 exist – regardless of what some of us might think of them. With the X Series, BMW now pretty much has an SUV for every segment and size category, for every discerning customer and their specific needs and it was, not too long ago, completely by the ultra gigantic BMW X7.
From afar, you’d probably mistake it for a BMW X5 but there’s more to the X7, which GC Mah test drove in Portugal, that separates it from the now second-largest SUV in the BMW range; and it’s not just the enormous grille upfront.
Under the hood is a 3.0-litre turbocharged in-line six cylinder engine paired to an 8 speed automatic gearbox to drive all four wheels. 0 to 100 km/h, despite its behemoth proportions, takes just 6.1 seconds – a Golf GTI-rivaling time.
But really, you wouldn’t wanna read about the most exclusive BMW SUV would you? It’s something you’d need to watch to truly appreciate. On that note, allow GC Mah to enlightened you, as to why this car costs a whopping RM888,888!
