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.
