When BMW Tuning Goes Wrong: Gulf Lotus X12 [Video]
There isn't a person in the world that doesn't know about Arab money. Dubai, Qatar, Doha are places to be if you want to buy anything that has to do with luxury. You'll find everything you need and if what you want doesn't exist, we're pretty sure someone will make it for you, if you can afford it.
This is the case with this little 'hybrid'. Being called X12 it should make you wonder if it has anything to do with the BMW X6. Well you wouldn't be wrong.
This car is a mixture between the Hummer H2 and the BMW X6. At first we were pretty surprised too, and it took some research to find out what we're looking at. The cross between the H2 and the X6 is visible mostly because of the shape of the front roof pillar and the rear end of the car. The story doesn't end here though. To be a true kitsch car, the headlights were taken from a F01 7 Series and the boot lid and taillights came from a BMW X6.
Hamann was also introduced into the mix and some bits and pieces from them were used, like the vented hood, the triple exhaust, LED strips and the rear wing.
What do you reckon it looks like? Should this kind of cross-bred cars exist on today's streets?
