2023 Alpina XB7 Adds 107 HP, New Look to BMW X7



The face-lifted X7 was lately launched to the world by BMW, and coming in proper behind it’s the new, hotter Alpina XB7. There are extra than simply beauty adjustments right here. There’s some fairly candy variations below the hood, as effectively.

The brand new automotive get’s BMW’s subsequent technology 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8 with a 48-volt mild-hybrid system. All collectively it produces 630 horsepower. That’s up 18 over the earlier mannequin. It additionally makes a beefy 590 lb-ft of torque from 1,800 rpm all the way in which as much as 5,600 rpm. The engine (dubbed the S58) can launch the huge, practically 6,000 pound, 7-seater from 0 to 60 mph in a tick below 4 seconds. That’s fairly a feat. When you maintain your foot in it a bit longer, you’ll have handed the quarter mile in 12.4 seconds. When you keep in it loads longer, you’ll hit the XB7’s 180 mph high pace.

Alpina has additionally designed its personal engine administration and cooling programs to get this rig as much as its requirements.

As is custom with Alpinas, the transmission’s gears are managed by buttons (not paddles) behind the steering wheel. That’s not the one Alpina type change, nevertheless. You additionally get a fairly tidy Alpina physique package with a entrance splitter, aspect skirts and a brand new rear bumper. As a result of it is a large SUV, it wants large wheels, and Alpina solutions the decision with 23-inch wheels with Alpina’s traditional 20 spoke wheels. These are customary, but when that’s somewhat bit an excessive amount of for you, you’ll be able to choose 21-inch wheels as a no-cost possibility.

Stopping these huge wheels are equally huge brakes: 4 piston, 15.5-inch rotors up entrance to be precise. Out again there’s additionally a rear-wheel steering system that may pivot the rear wheels by as much as 2.3 levels.

It’ll additionally decrease itself by 0.8 inches when the motive force hits the Sport mode button or goes over 100 mph. That’s nothing in comparison with what occurs once you go into Sport Plus or hit 155 mph. That’s when the Alpina drops by a complete of 1.6 inches.

Inside there are all kinds of Alpina-specific styling touches. In all probability probably the most noticeable is the blue accents on the middle console and gauge cluster (extra vehicles ought to have blue gauges). There’s even a special steering wheel (with these buttons behind it), illuminated door sills and wooden inside trim. Nonetheless, if you happen to’re a goofus you may get carbon fiber trim as an possibility. There’s additionally a quite cool Alpina brand within the conventional BMW iDrive management knob. I like that… principally as a result of it’s shiny.
