Spy Shots: BMW X6

BMW is rumored to be in the process of developing a pseudo-crossover built on the X5's underpinnings, but until now it was only gossip and conjecture. KGP Photography maintains that this mule is such a vehicle, judging by the steeply raked windscreen, higher beltline and camo-clad rear end.
Where a traditional liftback would normally reside on the X5, the X6 will have a more sloping C-pillar (think Merc CLS/R-class), which KGP suggests may draw a few styling cues from the Z4 coupe. The addition of camouflage to the fenders suggests that flared wheel arches are underneath, giving a more sporting pretense to the new crossover.

KGP believes that this is not the V5, a direct competitor to the Mercedes R-class, since the ride height and body style are not inline with such an offering.
