With a base of the new 2023 BMW X7 M60i, the 2023 Alpina XB7 takes the new 4.4-liter mild-hybrid twin-turbo V8 and squeezes out 621 horsepower and 590 pound-feet of torque, an upgrade of eight ponies compared to the previous generation model. The vehicle can go from 0 to 60 mph in only four second, beating the new M60i by one second.
The XB7 has received a revised engine management system and a more efficient radiator and transmission cooler. It is integrated with Alpina-specific intercoolers, as well as external engine oil and water coolers. Another addition is new struts, dampers, and stiffer rear axle bushings for the suspension.
Its exteriors see a change in its lower intake with a new restructured design and framing with a contrasting color from the bodywork. 2023 Alpina XB7 is presented with 21-inch Alpina Dynamic rims on 285/45 high-performance summer rubber. Clients have an option to upgrade with 23-inch forged alloy Alpina Classic wheels that features Pirellis sized 285/35 in the front and a whopping 325/30 in the back.
Inside, the luxurious SUV is fitted with Lavalina leather seats and Myrtle wood stock trim, but is customizable into piano lacquer and natural walnut anthracite. It has accents of blue and green for its infotainment display theme, digital gauges, and gear selector switch.
BMW has yet to announce pricing for the refreshed XB7, but drivers in the US market will be able to order starting in September. Deliveries are expected in December.
