BMW ALPINA XB7

Powertrain

Ultimate performance

The state-of-the-art high-performance powertrain spawns the powerful and confident character of the new BMW ALPINA XB7 and offers linear power delivery across the entire engine speed range. The engine’s character is best described as an early, torque-filled urgency followed by a surge of mid-range power and a hard charge to redline.

The 4.4 litre V8 engine with bi-turbo charging delivers an output of 457 kW (621 hp) and a maximum torque of 800 Nm (590 lb-ft) which is available from an extraordinary 2000 rpm all the way to 5000 rpm. The BMW ALPINA XB7 needs just 4.2 seconds to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (0 to 62 mph), and completes the sprint from 0 to 200 km/h (0 to 124 mph) in just 14.9 seconds. Maximum speed is limited to 290 km/h (180 mph).*

The engine’s power characteristics and superb throttle response are the result of detailed optimizations of the turbocharging and cooling systems, not to mention ALPINA’s instantly recognizable throttle harmony. Two twin-scroll turbochargers with 54 mm (2.1“) turbines facilitate the near-instantaneous conversion of exhaust gas energy into boost pressure, even at low engine speeds for early maximum torque.

*In combination with ALPINA DYNAMIC 21“ wheel/tyre combination.

Performance enhancing all-wheel drive (xDrive)

The BMW ALPINA XB7 all-wheel drive is based on the BMW xDrive system, which fully and variably distributes torque as required between the front and rear axles. The ALPINA specific adaptation of the torque distribution maximizes traction and neutral driving dynamics in all conditions.

Tailored V8 sound

The all new, stainless-steel ALPINA sport exhaust system is responsible for the BMW ALPINA XB7’s signature V8 sound. Active exhaust system flaps allow the driver to influence the sound: restrained in COMFORT mode for best possible travel comfort or clearly pronounced in SPORT mode. Naturally, the two twin tailpipes of the system are integrated elegantly into the ALPINA rear apron.

The disclosed fuel consumption and CO2 emissions are measured according to WLTP (Worldwide Harmonized Light-Duty Vehicles Test Procedure) and converted to NEDC (New European Driving Cycle) for comparison purposes. Depending on your country, vehicle related taxes or other duties may be based on fuel consumption and CO2 emissions data which differs from that shown here.

Further information on specific fuel consumption and specific CO2 emissions of new passenger cars is given in „Leitfaden über den Kraftstoffverbrauch, die CO2-Emissionen und den Stromverbrauch neuer Personenkraftwagen” which can be obtained free of charge at all points of sale and from the Deutsche Automobil Treuhand GmbH (DAT), Helmut-Hirth-Str. 1, 73760 Ostfildern-Scharnhausen.
