When it comes to ultimate SUVs, the Alpina XB7 is right up there! Based on the BMW X7 model, with the flagship level of quality from Alpina, the XB7 mates big power and big technology with luxury. Let's check it out and go out for a test drive to see what it's like!
Alpina models are built on the very same production line as their BMW equivalents, in the case of the XB7 and X7 models that means in Spartanburg, South Carolina, USA. The XB7 has a 4.4l twin power turbo V8 making 621 horsepower and 800Nm (590 lb-ft) of torque, plentiful power despite the size.
Specific for the Alpina model are a number of elements; from the visual upgrades to the front apron and large 23" Alpina classic wheels, to a new Comfort Plus suspension setting and associated hardware upgrades for a magic carpet ride. It also features upgraded brakes, a new exhaust system, tweaks to the engine and gearbox, and an interior with plenty of bespoke and exclusive touches with top quality leathers and materials.
Starting with a walkaround, we can explore the unique touches on the Alpina XB7 and in particular check out the incredibly luxurious interior. There's a lot to see before then going out for a drive in sunny California for more of an idea of what it's all about.
Thanks for watching, Tim

Join me to check out the Alpina XB7, very much the flagship of the BMW X7 range mating big power and big technology to incredibly high levels of luxury. There are numerous special touches to the Alpina model versus other X7s, we can explore these and take it out for a drive to see what it's all about. Is it your ultimate luxury SUV?

@Edgar Gomes that's new price. I didn't look for used XB7s I wouldn't pay that much money for an SUV. EVER!

Dont know About the design esp the back from the side, but im sure it looks better irl . But when it comes to design this alpina , Maybach gls, Audi Q8 etc no one of those has the presence of the Rolls Royce cullinan. It just Screams boss and luxury and it Looks like it Would swallow the others , still the design is ”simple” compare to the others. Those look like they tried to hard to make a Suv look like a luxury sedan

As always, Shmee does a great job! Only problem is, why the hell does anyone need a car that BIG? Luxury? I'd say an X5 would be fine (still huge) or a 5 or 7 series even. If it carries 6 almost always (as a working vehicle), only then would it be semi justifiable, but most of the time, off to the shops or hairdressers with one or two ppl in it! It's a look at me car, thanks but no thanks!

A very lethargic review of what is quite a nice car. Maybe if it had a stupidly loud exhaust, Shmee would have exhibited some more enthusiasm.

At the rate he releases videos, he doesn’t have time for creativity. It’s quantity over quality

Why doesn't he invest in a cameraman? His been in FIpost for quite awhile now and the quality of videos has not improved...
VikVaughan Uukausi sitten
It's FIpost not a TV show. Half the appeal is that he's just a guy with his own camera doing what he loves.

Looking at this vehicle reminds of the Seinfeld episode when Kramer tells the lady she is just as beautiful as a model, she just needs a nose job.

This will be used to pick the kids up from school when they could easily walk or driving around Chelsea or Harrods very slow just to say look I'm rich. Another pointless massive 4x4 bought from the wrong reasons.

The large (ugly) grille doesn't look too bad on this 4x4 due to its size as opposed to other models such as the 3 or 5 series
