Alpina XB7: Buchloe adapts the factory facelift

BMW has extensively revised the giant X7 SUV for the 2023 model year. At Alpina in Buchloe, the XB7 has been adapted to the changed look.

Alpina only started with the XB7 in 2020, a good year after BMW brought the X7 to market. BMW has now given its X7 SUV top model a major facelift for the 2023 model year, which of course also has an impact on Buchloe’s XB7. The custom Alpina XB7 can be ordered now, but won’t be delivered to customers until December 2022.


Like the BMW SUV, the XB7 gets the new front end design with the two-part light and illuminated radiator grille, as well as the new taillights at the rear. Alpina re-adds its modified aprons to both ends of the vehicle. In the wheel arches are the well-known 21-inch Alpina Dynamic wheels with 285/45 tires. Alpina optionally offers 23-inch wheels with 285/35 tires on the front axle and 325/30 tires on the rear axle.


New base engine, same performance

In terms of the powertrain, Alpina is switching to the latest development stage V8 (S68) with a cross-cylinder manifold, 48-volt on-board network and a BMW electric motor integrated into the automatic transmission in view of exhaust gases. increasingly strict escape. worldwide standards. However, this does not change the performance data of the 4.4-liter twin-turbo unit. It remains in the XB7 with 621bhp and 800Nm of torque, which is now available in a wider gear range. The 2.7-tonne SUV accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.2 seconds and has a top speed of 290 km/h.



In the cabin, the Alpina XB7 also benefits from the new curved screen and the latest generation of i-Drive with the BMW OS8 operating system. The ads are again specific to Alpina.


Alpina asks for the base price of the XB7 170,500 euros. BMW’s XB7 base model, the X7 M60i xDrive starts at €127,200. Since Alpina has only released one image of the new XB7 so far, we show the facelift of the BMW X7 in the slideshow.
