Here are some pictures of an X7 prototype testing in Bavaria, Germany. It is being covered up with camouflage, as you might have expected.
The X7 will be manufactured at BMW's factory in Spartanburg, South Carolina where the automaker plans on investing 1 billion USD. It will be built on the same platform as the next generation 5- and 7-Series.
The spy shots show us that the X7 will likely have a longer hood, an elongated rear overhang and a bigger rear quarter window. We can also see that the roofline is flat, so none of this coupe no back head room business.

Another theory we threw around is that the rumored Rolls-Royce SUV would ride on the X7’s platform. While that is still a possibility, I expected the Roller to feature a bit more bespoke chassis than that of a lengthened X5. Likely, few Rolls buyers will know the difference between a distinctive platform and that of a Bimmer-sourced unit. So, why not?
Actually I dont think these spys are of the X7, couple of the guys on bimmerpost are saying this is actually an old test mule for the x5 eDrive derivative. You can see if you look closely on the back hatch it says Hybrid Test Vehicle. Plus the proportions from the rear door back do not look adequate to accommodate a third row back there...
