The upcoming ALPINA XB7 is a new luxurious and powerful version of BMW X7 is set to arrive in 2020. It was recently spotted on the Nürburgring. The new version of BMW X7 is much more powerful and is expected to be the fastest SUV in the world.
It is singly revised in styling and geared mainly towards the US market. Hence, the new luxurious SUV will join the B7 Sedan in 2020 as the only two ALPINA options in North America.
The 2021 BMW ALPINA XB7 comes with some of the most recognizable brand design features, such as the multi-spoke wheels, the iconic ALPINA logos, the optional LAVALINA full leather upholstery for the interior, and the special ALPINA DEKO-SET shades of blue and green.
The power will come from the B7 model. Hence, the new XB7 will be powered by the 4.4-litre V8 petrol engine rated at 447 kW/608 hp and pumping out an impressive 800 Nm of peak torque. It is available on a broad interval between 2,000 and 5,000 rpm.
You can expect a top speed of near 330 km/h, which makes the ALPINA XB7 a massive power package. What’s more, you’ll be able to reach a distance from standstill to 100 km/h in less than 4 seconds. This is made possible thanks to the xDrive all-wheel-drive system.
“Generally speaking, SUVs are more and more in trend and we are currently investigating with BMW of North America whether it makes sense to have a huge SUV model from ALPINA,” said ALPINA CEO Andreas Bovensiepen.
The interior of the ALPINA is very stylish and attractive. It has a much nicer interior of the already plush BMW. You’ll love the high-quality materials inside, such as the high-end leather and wood trim. It is expected to offer the most comfortable ride ever.
Considering that the B7 was around $142,000, we can expect the ALPINA luxury SUV to have a similar or even higher price. Its capabilities and design can even mean that this version of BMW X7 will be one of the most successful ALPINA models ever sold in the United States.
The BMW ALPINA XB7 will be also available from BMW dealers in the UK. Buyers in Europe will be able to choose a 3.0-litre inline-six turbodiesel with 394 bhp and 560 lb-ft of torque. It would come with an eight-speed automatic and have all-wheel drive.
