There are no pickup trucks in the BMW lineup, save for one very special M3. But, dare we ask, what would a real Bimmer truck look like? Automotive manipulator Theophilus Chin was curious, so he fired up his favorite photo editing software and created the beast you see here. Behold, the X5 GranLastwagen.

According to Google Translate, "lastwagen" is German for "truck," and we assume the "Gran" was added simply because it's, well, grand. That, or because it still retains the X5's luxurious five-passenger interior. Want to take in this curious creation from other angles? You can see more of the BMW X5 pickup at Chin's website.

        Not what anyone would consider a challenge. The Pontiac Aztek looks better than the X6.

        Here's the real challenge: does it look better than the 5 GT?

      Would that be allowed to be parked overnight in Coral Gables, Florida?

      "There are no pickup trucks in the BMW lineup". Yup. Very few Lexus, Acura, Mercedes, Audi pickups either. Now if only we could pinpoint the *reason* for this...

        Mercedes sells the Unimog in many countries, but I am not sure about USA.

          The Unimog is so freakin' awesome, what an incredible machine! I don't think they sell them here in the states though. :(

      Very nice photoshop, BUT I guarantee that if this went into production the shape would be more akin to a Avalanche/EscaladeEXT/Ridgeline half-bed with godawful blind spots on the side.

      No separation between the passenger compartment and the pick up truck bed. Shows a lack of understanding of vehicle dynamics.

      A pickup with wood on the dash, leather seats and all the creature comforts known to man? How ridiculous..

        Of course it is ridiculous. But so is an Escalade, the Aviator, the huge Lexus version of the Land Cruiser, and most of the other "luxury" SUVs. But they are fantastic money makers for their manufacturers, and they provide status and driveway bling for their owners.

      Oh, look. A Subaru Brat with a BMW grill and a diesel engine, and it only costs forty-two thousand quid.
