dÄhler endows the BMW X7 flagship with 630 PS
BMW must have felt that its X7 SUV was powerful enough not to develop an M version of it, but some owners beg to differ and go to tuner shops for a solution.
Swiss tuning house dÄhler Competition offers a nice alternative to the non-existent X7 M, boosting it by 110 horsepower and improving suspension, exhaust and wheels.
Once all is said and done, the SUV hits the wheels with 630 PS (621 hp / 463 kW) and 830 Nm (612 lb-ft) of torque. The company mentions that a Stage 2 kit is in development, but the figures don’t seem that impressive: the power gain will apparently amount to 16 PS (16 hp / 12 kW) and the torque to 20 Nm (15 lb-ft).
The new exhaust system offers a valve for precise sound control, and you can adjust it on the go using buttons on the steering wheel. Stock air-ride suspension benefits from a lowering module that brings it several millimeters closer to the ground. Rounding off the exterior mods are 23x11-inch forged wheels with a ten-spoke pattern.
Swing open a door to find a new odometer marked all the way up to 330 km/h (205 miles per hour), aluminum pedal pads, and the mandatory branded floor mats.
