2021 BMW Alpina XB7 spy shots and video

Semi-official BMW tuner Alpina has given the world some fantastically tweaked cars over the years, the latest of which are the 600-horsepower B7 based on the 7-Series and 462-hp B3 based on the 3-Series.

As you may have noticed, Alpina often steps where BMW’s own tuner, the M division, doesn’t dare tread, and it looks like the next offering will be based on the X7.

The latest spy shots and video show prototypes for an Alpina X7 being tested hard at the Nürburgring and on some of the German racetrack’s surrounding roads. Signature Alpina cues include the horizontal slats of the lower front fascia, the multi-spoke wheels, and the quad-exhaust tips.
