- The X7 based SUV will be available as the XB7 (petrol) and XD7 (diesel)
- Test-mule features refreshed fascia and new alloy wheels
The BMW X7 was unveiled back in October 2018. The full-size SUV from the Bavarian manufacturer was recently launched in India. Now, German marquee Aplina is working on a performance version of the X7, known as the XB7. The model was recently spied testing at the Nurburgring.
Spy images reveal a partially camouflaged test-mule of the BMW X7 based Alpina XB7. Reports suggest that Alpina is working on two variants of the X7 including petrol and diesel. The former will be known as the XB7 while the latter could be christened as the XD7.
The Alpina XB7 seen in the images here reveal that the model will receive a redesigned fascia that features horizontal slats on the front bumper. Also on offer will be multi-spoke alloy wheels. The performance-oriented SUV is expected to be powered by a 4.4-litre twin-turbocharged V8 engine that will produce north of 600bhp. Prior to the launch of the Alpina XB7, the brand will introduce the 7-Series based B7. BMW is also working on a full-blown M-variant of the X7, which will rival against the likes of the Mercedes-AMG GLS 63.
