Huge crossover BMW X7 M is a "charged" Alpina XB7

In the near future Alpina will completely leave under the wings of BMW and become an alternative M-division

Most recently, BMW has announced a refreshed X7. This was caused by the falling demand for the largest crossover in the lineup of the Bavarian brand. Such a turn of events is obvious, because in today's realities of the automobile market, the model is kept "afloat" for about 7-8 years.

This update gained the status of global, as the full-size parkette has managed to shed light on the new corporate style of the company. Naturally, it caused a lot of disputes on the network. Huge "nostrils" of a radiator grill and imposing two-tier optics were perceived absolutely ambiguously. But, this was the calculation of designers, who gave a bright appearance, which gave a new perception of the exterior of the legendary brand.

Самая мощная версия кроссовера

Along with this resounding premiere, there is still no "charged" modification of the BMW X7 M in the lineup of the sports M division. This fact clearly gives an advantage to the Mercedes GLS 63 AMG, which has no worthy competitor in the segment. This went on until recently, when Alpina introduced the "heated" XB7, based on the latest BMW X7.

The huge crossover is the alternative to the BMW X7 M. Externally, the model stands out with an aggressive aerodynamic kit, represented by a muscular front bumper, sculpted side skirts and a rear diffuser with four exhaust pipes. The picture is completed with 21-inch alloy wheels.

Роскошый интерьер

The interior of the SUV is notable for its signature three-spoke steering wheel with the Alpina logo. In addition, the interior is made of aluminum, expensive leather and alcantara. On the central tunnel, near the gear selector, there is a plate with the serial number. Almost all the management, as in the original, will be responsible available through the curved cockpit, combining two displays.

In technical terms, the crossover repeats the BMW X7 M60i, providing for a 4.4-liter "biturbo-eight", working in conjunction with a 48-volt starter generator, integrated into the 8-ACP. At the same time, the mild hybrid has received a number of modifications, including new turbochargers, an improved cooling system and a new exhaust manifold. As a result, the system now produces 621 horsepower and 800 Nm. Such figures allow, almost three-ton "big guy" cope with the discipline 0-100 for impressive 4.2 seconds, and accelerate to 280 km / h. To become the owner of such version, it is necessary to lay out 170 500 euros that is equivalent to 9 565 000 roubles. The cross is traditionally a limited edition.
