However, BMW decides the opposition of creating an X7 M, we can count Alpina to dial the full-size luxury SUV up to a notch. Likely the B7 sedan serves as a substitute for the M7. The new XB7 is missing the piece of the puzzle, also slotting above the X7 M50i in the luxobarge’s hierarchy. So in the typical Alpina fashion, the visual changes over the standard model are subtle and come to enhance the vehicle’s already powerful presence.
Let’s start from the front, the reworked bumper carries the traditional Alpina lettering. Also with the boasts larger intake to provide optimal cooling for the upgraded twin-turbo 4.4 liter V8. The features of the rear end a discreetly modified bumper with an upgraded exhaust system adapted from the B7. With dual tips flanking the vertical fins.
