The kids over at Autoblog.nl pulled their fingers out of the leak in the dike long enough to hammer out a missive proclaiming that BMW's gonna build a crossover that'll go on sale in 2008. According to them, the X-Sport (Whoa! No alphanumerics! Just alphas!) will come with a 265-horse six at launch, as well as a diesel option, with a 4.4L V-8 to follow. We have no idea how accurate the supplied photo is, but it looks a damn sight better than a lot of crossovers out there.
