The Ultimate Luxury Powerhouse SUV!? Alpina XB7 Test Drive
When it comes to ultimate SUVs, the Alpina XB7 is right up there! Based on the BMW X7 model, with the flagship level of quality from Alpina, the XB7 mates big power and big technology with luxury. Let's check it out and go out for a test drive to see what it's like!
Alpina models are built on the very same production line as their BMW equivalents, in the case of the XB7 and X7 models that means in Spartanburg, South Carolina, USA. The XB7 has a 4.4l twin power turbo V8 making 621 horsepower and 800Nm (590 lb-ft) of torque, plentiful power despite the size.
Specific for the Alpina model are a number of elements; from the visual upgrades to the front apron and large 23" Alpina classic wheels, to a new Comfort Plus suspension setting and associated hardware upgrades for a magic carpet ride. It also features upgraded brakes, a new exhaust system, tweaks to the engine and gearbox, and an interior with plenty of bespoke and exclusive touches with top quality leathers and materials.
Starting with a walkaround, we can explore the unique touches on the Alpina XB7 and in particular check out the incredibly luxurious interior. There's a lot to see before then going out for a drive in sunny California for more of an idea of what it's all about.
Thanks for watching, Tim
