KUALA LUMPUR: For those who aren’t aware, Alpina is part of BMW’s portfolio and is an automobile craftsman. It hand builds the engines, parts and interior, which once done are sent to the automaker's factory for final assembly. For instance, earlier this year the automaker unveiled the 2022 BMW Alpina B8 Gran Coupe and now we see the 2023 BMW Alpina XB7 making a stunning appearance. Overall, Alpina makes the ordinary BMW cars extra-extra cool.

    Let’s get to know the all-new 2023 BMW Alpina XB7 in detail -

    Alpina XB7: Powertrain configuration

    Built on the BMW X7, the Alpina XB7 acquires the automaker’s new 4.4-litre twin-turbo V8 engine with 48-volt mild-hybrid tech. Together the setup generates a maximum power of 630 hp along with a peak torque of 800 Nm. That’s quite a good hike compared to the standard model (621 hp), all thanks to the extensive modifications by Alpina’s engineers.

    All-wheel drive comes standard, as is an 8-speed automatic transmission.
