State-of-the-art engine technology, now including BMW mild hybrid technology, provides the basis for the engine’s high performance reserves and effortless power delivery.
A characteristic feature is the high torque output of 800 Nm (590 lb-ft) which is available from just 1,800 rpm all the way to 5,400 rpm. The engine’s high power reserves are effortlessly and readily available at all times, which is what the superior ALPINA driving experience is all about.
The V8 engine with bi-turbo charging generates 457 kW (621 hp) from 4.4 litres of displacement and delivers exceptional driving performance: the luxury 7-seater SAV accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in just 4.2 seconds, hits the 200 km/h mark in 14.8 seconds and can reach a top speed of 290 km/h (180 mph).*
The latest transmission generation from ZF (8HP80) with integrated 48v mild hybrid technology offers both comfort and performance at the highest level. Depending on the chosen drive and transmission mode, the 8-Speed Sport Automatic Transmission offers unparalleled shift comfort and the capability to execute shifts in tenths of a second. Effective torque distribution is guaranteed by the intelligent xDrive all-wheel drive system and an electronically-variable limited-slip differential on the rear axle.
