German tuning company Alpina will present its version of the full-size crossover BMW X7 on May 19. Most likely, the new product will be based on the most powerful version of the X7 M50i.

Just a few days ago, Alpina introduced the D3 S sedan and station wagon, which are heavily upgraded versions of the 3 Series, and now we are waiting for another very interesting debut. The well-known tuning studio that is working on the modernization of BMW cars is going to add a modified version of the full-size X7 crossover with its lineup – the car will receive the designation XB7.

 We have already seen prototypes of the car being tested on the Nurburgring racetrack. Back in July 2019, Alpina’s CEO said the XB7 would be “a great sports car.”

 The official debut of the new items is scheduled for next Tuesday, May 19, so that the waiting period is almost over.

Although Alpina does not yet want to reveal any details about its new product, the nickname “XB7” clearly means that the car will be equipped with a gasoline engine. Obviously, the company plans to introduce a diesel version of the XD7. Most likely, the car is built on the basis of the B7 in the powerful performance of the M50i, under the hood of which is a 4.4-liter V8 with two turbines with a capacity of 523 horsepower.

 Alpina’s BMW X7 M analogue should offer somewhere in the region of 600 hp, as well as a starting price that will exceed $ 99,600, for which you can buy the original crossover from the sports BMW M. The novelty will receive small changes in appearance and 20-spoke alloy wheels. As with other BMWs that were upgraded by Alpina, the full-size crossover is likely to boast a more efficient chassis and suspension, as well as an improved braking system and changes to the automatic transmission that are needed to make the gearbox cope with problems power gain.
