Oh Mansory, you’re like our favorite recovering celebrity. Some days we absolutely adore you, and other days we can’t help but to shake our head in disgust. Mansory’s latest creation, their rendition of BMW‘s new flagship 7-Series sedan, shows exactly why automotive manufacturers don’t mix and mingle SUV styling with luxury sedans.

For whatever reason, Mansory didn’t really go digging into the creative department when it came to styling BMW’s redesigned 7-Series. Instead, they reached right up on their shelves, pulled the same front bumper off their X5 M and X6 M packages, and got it to fit nice and snug on the 7-Series. The result isn’t so fantastic, given that we’re so used to seeing that front styling on an SUV and not a luxury sedan. Regardless, the bold and open front end design looks absolutely out of place on a luxury sedan that really sports conservative bodylines.

The front kidney grilles are also swapped out for horizontally-slitted carbon fiber variants, which is strange considering BMW’s are known to have vertically-slitted kidney grilles and the change again, looks odd and out of place. The rear features a new bumper with diffuser fitted for a quad-tipped exhaust system, presumably Mansory’s own. Roof and trunk spoilers seems to also be part of the package.

As for what’s left on the outside, Mansory paired up the 7-Series with a fittingly bad set of chrome wheels, really rounding out the lack of thought put into the package.
