The car as such is a technological master piece, no doubt!

The combo of the X7 as a massive SUV, near truck, with the somehow clumsy Alpina transformation does give the impression it came right out of a marvell comic book. A massive grill of unprecedented size, massive wheels that look way too small, chrome pieces coming from the eighties a distinctive colour scheme!

Don't get me wrong, I admire this machine, but it's a balance act between art and kitsch. To me it's art, but it will not for many I'am afraid since they don't know what a gem it really is.

We have a new Cayenne coupe and I feel this x7 superior in terms of aesthetics, from the front.

It's nearly impossible to make a 7 seat SUV look good.

Looks are always subjective. I personally do not like the alpina wheels and tacked on looking body parts. But, let's rejoice in the 612hp and tuning modifications! It's a beast!

Definitely your opinion but like most, I LOVE the front end. Very stylish and aggressive or classy depending on which trim level you get and it also has "presence".

Maybe you could post a few photos of your XB7 outside in natural light.
