The 2017 BMW Alpina B7 Xdrive follows the same pattern the company has developed throughout the years. It is the same but with better space, performance and comfort.
Based on the company’s statement, the new Alpina B7 is going to be the most powerful cars in their lineup. The car is scheduled for an official launch this September before which the brand has released official pictures, specifications and other related information.
The car is powered by a 4.4-liter V8 engine which is twin turbocharged and slightly altered to offer better horsepower. It is capable of delivering a good 600 horsepower with 590 lb feet of torque. With the boosted engine power, the car can accelerate from 0 to 60 miles per hour in just 3.6 seconds. It has a top speed of 193 miles per hour.
A wide range of modifications has been done to the car’s engine so as to extract its maximum power. Engineers who worked on the 2017 BMW Alpina B7 Xdrive said that they have modified the 4.4-liter twin turbo engine with better intercooler, air intake system and turbochargers in order to boost its horsepower and torque. The size of the inlet and outlet has been exponentially increased to achieve the outcome.
For better comfort, the car uses dynamic dampener control switch with Active comfort drive, roll stabilization and an integral active steering. When you are driving the car at lower speeds, the height of the suspension system can be modified to decrease the center of gravity.
The car has two different modes to choose from – the Comfort+ and the Alpina Sport+ mode. Luxury features that can be found in the car include seats covered with nappa leather, ceramic inserts, a rear view camera that makes parking and lane switching easier as well as an improved infotainment system with navigation controls.
With piano black lacquer or wood trim finishing on the dashboard, it is expected to create a much more sophisticated look than ever before. There are LED lightings on the infotainment area which changes indicating the active mode.
The company has not officially announced the pricing of the car. It is expected that they will make it official towards the release date which is scheduled to be in September. BMW confirmed that their goal is to offer a full sedan experience without any compromises with the best comfort and performance offered by the new Alpina 2017 B7 XDrive.
