The 2023 BMW X7 has received a facelift and now we have our first look at the hotter 2023 Alpina XB7.
The XB7 adds a sportier look to the X7 with its Alpina body kit that includes side skirts, a front splitter and a revised rear bumper with four oval exhaust tips. It rides on 23-inch wheels with 20 spokes, while 21-inch wheels are optional. Inside there are blue accents, illuminated door sills and a Alpina specific steering wheel.
Under the hood the XB7 is powered by a new twin-turbocharged 4.4-liter V8 that’s mated to a mild-hybrid system. The powertrain generates 630 horsepower and 590 pound-feet of torque. If you’re keeping track, the XB7 has 107 more horsepower than the X7. Alipina says that the XB7 can accelerate from 0-60 mph in 3.9 seconds and has a top speed of 180 mph.
Stopping power is provided by four-piston front brake calipers with 15.5-inch rotors and an air suspension can lift the XB7 by 1.6 inches or lower it by 0.8-inches in Sport mode or at speeds over 100 mph. In Sport+ mode or at speeds over 155 mph the suspension lowers the XB7 1.6 inches.
The 2023 Alpina XB7 is priced at $145,995, including destination. It will arrive in early 2023.
