Moving inside, there’s a multi-function leather steering wheel, all-weather mats for the floor and luggage compartment, dark copper trim sections and upholstery finished in a mixture of leather and fabric.

Due to make its official début in Los Angeles next month, the Concept K2 Powder Ride is the result of a three-year partnership between BMW and K2. Visually, this special SUV stands 18 mm taller than standard and wears Valencia Orange paintwork with fox graphics, 19-inch Ferric Grey alloy wheels, matte black window surrounds and roof rails, and Ferric Grey sill plates and lower bumper sections. The milled aluminium roof structure incorporates three LED spotlights, two luggage boxes, a ski carrier and a Harman Kardon sound system which uses a Class D 2 x 550-watt amplifier to drive a pair of two-way loudspeakers, a 500-watt subwoofer and microphone.
