The automotive industry is at the heart of so much that the world is always waiting eagerly for the slightest hint of refreshing news. That is one way through which the industry thrived. This has been the story of the XB7, whose news has been a little hard to come by, but there is now some intensively conclusive news.
It is a BMW X7 that has been worked on by coachbuilder Alpina and aptly named the Alpina XB7. It was recently seen in the unforgiving Nürburgring undergoing testing.
Word has it that this car will drive a modified version of the twin-turbo 4.4-liter V-8 engine. It is this same engine that is found on the X7 50i and the X7 M50i.
This could thus translate to no less than 600 horsepower and 590 lb-ft of torque. a whole 77 hp below the equally gracious X7 M50i.
BMW already claims that the X7 M50i is good enough for a zero-to-60-mph time of 4.1 seconds. It might then turn out the Alpina-tuned car will manage something well below four seconds.
Word has it still that the automaker is working on two different versions of this performance high-riding automotive. One of them will do 3.0-liter using an inline-six diesel engine that produces around 394 horsepower (294 kilowatts) and 560 pound-feet (760 Newton-meters). The other one could be a V8 engine whose specifications are yet to leak out.
