Read Time:1 Minute, 42 Second

Alpina actually is aware of easy methods to make BMW automobiles further cool. We have always loved the tuning company’s products, and we do not see a lot to dislike in regards to the 2023 Alpina XB7 that debuted Tuesday — other than the bizarre cut up headlights, anyway.

The Alpina XB7 builds off the X7 M60i, that means it makes use of BMW’s new twin-turbo 4.4-liter V8 with 48-volt mild-hybrid know-how. Complete output is rated at 630 horsepower and 590 pound-feet of torque, will increase of 100 hp and 37 lb-ft. This implies the Alpina XB7 can dash to 60 mph in simply 3.9 seconds, although apparently, regardless of the additional energy, that is solely a 0.1-second enchancment over the X7 M60i.

Nonetheless, we love the brand new V8 engine. There’s tons of low-end punch and the 48-volt mild-hybrid system permits the cease/begin tech to work easily. All-wheel drive is customary, as is an eight-speed computerized transmission, and the Alpina XB7 comes customary with go-fast applied sciences like an energetic limited-slip differential and rear-axle steering. The standard X7 drives like a dream, so we’re anticipating nothing much less from the Alpina, even with its model-specific (learn: barely stiffer) chassis tuning.

After all, the Alpina updo is about greater than efficiency. Styling touches embody these superior 23-inch wheels with Alpina’s 20-spoke design, although smaller 21-inch wheels can be found in the event you favor. The illuminated grille has a waterfall lighting look, which outght to look rad at evening, and inside, there is a distinctive Alpina glass iDrive controller, Lavalina leather-based, totally different wooden trim and extra.

The Alpina XB7 comes customary with just about all the X7’s non-obligatory tools, therefore its beginning value of $145,995, together with a $995 vacation spot cost. BMW says the Alpina XB7 order books will open in September with the primary deliveries going down early subsequent yr.
