The XB7 is assembled at BMW’s Spartanburg, SC factory.
There are enough orders to last beyond the end of 2020.
This is a perfect example of “built it, and it will sell”. No one needs such an SUV but everyone wants one. The proof is that all production slots for BMW ALPINA XB7 for the 2020 calendar year have already been filled.
Exclusivity comes in many packages but few are as rarified as an ALPINA product. This tuner-turned BMW sub-brand has been working with BMW for decades and those in the know know that ALPINAs are a rare sight. In fact, only about 2,000 vehicles are produced annually. You’re more likely to spot many Ferrari and Rolls-Royce cars than an ALPINA.
This is in part the motivation behind the strong interest for the new 2021 BMW ALPINA XB7. The other reasons to consider it are performance and luxury. The X7 M50i-sourced twin-turbo 4.4-litre BMW V8 pumps out 612 horsepower and 590 lb.-ft. of torque. This is enough to launch the 6,000 lb. XB7 to 100 km/h in 4.2 seconds, or slash the 0-60 mph in 4 seconds flat.
The luxury comes from many sides including the gorgeous 21-inch ALPINA DYNAMIC light-alloy wheels. Onboard, the hand-finished ALPINA XB7 is covered in Merino leather and Alcantara, all crafted to perfection.
Production of the 2021 BMW ALPINA XB7 began this month and deliveries will begin in September.
