You know, because it looks like a toilet.

Yeah, I thought it was a bidet, too. And while it is made of porcelain, what you’re looking at is actually a super extravagant, hugely unnecessary sculpture of the new BMW 7 Series. No, I don’t know why.

I’ll think I’ll just let BMW’s own lavish text explain.

“Inspired by the precise lines, harmonious proportions, and strongly controlled surface design of the new 7 Series, the design teams at BMW and Königliche Porzellan-Manufaktur Berlin (KPM Berlin) have created a porcelain sculpture which shines a vivid spotlight on the 7 Series’ design and provides it with an artistic showcase.”

Alrighty then.

The sculpture measures roughly 12x7 inches, and 500 examples will be made (by hand, you philistine). “BMW 7 Series” lettering is found on the base of the pedestal, and yes, you can personalize it. Should you desire such an object for your, I don’t know, fancy sculpture room, the porcelain Seven will be available starting in July, sold through the BMW Iconic Collection at select dealerships. No mention of a flush handle was made in BMW's press release, but I feel like it’s got to be there somewhere.
