The Alpina name at BMW comes with the reputation of discreetly sporty design and pinnacle performance. The latest car model to emerge from the BMW family is the 2023 BMW Alpina XB7. It is based on the BMW X7 M60i and features a mild-hybrid 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8, which cranks out 590 pound-feet of torque and 630 horsepower. Let’s look at some of the 2023 BMW Alpina XB7 features that we think you’ll love.
The powerful engine of this 2023 Alpina XB7 model is paired with eight-speed auto transmission, all-wheel-drive, and an electronic limited-slip differential on its rear axle. According to the BMW claims, the car can cover a quarter mile in about 12.4 seconds and reach 60 mph in just 3.9 seconds.
The Alpina XB7 has numerous visual upgrades along with massive engine upgrades. This ultra-luxury SUV rides on air suspension and is outfitted with unique Alpina dampers for the front and rear axles. At high speeds of over 155 mph or in Sport+ mode, they can drop by up to 1.6 inches to lower the center of gravity and improve handling. However, we are not sure whether American Alpina owners prefer these speeds behind the wheels of their colossal SUVs.
BMW also claims that the Alpina has reinforced torsion struts to increase rigidity and M60i’s electromechanical anti-roll bars and stiffer rear-axle bushings to reduce body roll. Its rear-wheel steering can move the wheels by about 2.3 degrees. Their incredible braking power is attributed to the four-piston fixed Brembo calipers that clamp onto 15.5-inch discs in the front wheels and floating calipers that clamp onto 15.7-inch discs at the rear.
The interior designs of XB7 are decked out with illuminated door sills, glass Alpina infotainment system control dial, Alpina blue-accented gauge clusters that change to green when in Sport or Sport+ modes, and a unique steering wheel with an excellent finish of Lavalina leather with green and blue stitching. They have six or seven seats, depending on the design you prefer.
