Tuning studio Dahler has unveiled its version of the flagship BMW X7 crossover. The car received a redesigned exterior and interior, as well as more power for its 4.4-liter V8.
BMW loves to offer high-performance versions of many of its models; However, not every car in the Bavarian automaker’s model lineup gets the coveted M badge. For example, the X7 M crossover is missing from the BMW M line – the most powerful version of the full-size crossover is the X7 M50i. Those looking for more can turn to Dahler, who took the stock X7 and added a host of performance and visual enhancements to create a truly sinister crossover.
The 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8 delivers 523 horsepower and 750 Nm of torque as standard, although that wasn’t enough for Dahler.
The upgraded version of the car, dubbed the Dark Shadow Edition, develops an impressive 621 hp. (830 Nm). This is a significant leap in power, although the tuner is preparing a more powerful Stage 2 upgrade, in which the crossover will produce 637 hp. (850 Nm).
The flagship SUV model of the Bavarian brand also has an updated look. Dahler added black chrome trim on the exterior, lowered the air suspension, and supplied a unique set of 23-inch forged wheels. The upgraded stainless steel four-pipe exhaust system, which matches the dark-colored wheels, features a two-piece regulator to modulate the exhaust sound. The buttons on the steering wheel control the exhaust function.
Dahler did not provide any details on how the refreshed X7 performs compared to the regular model, although it should certainly outperform the standard X7 M50i in terms of dynamics. The atelier has also kept interior modifications to a minimum, although customers can upgrade the speedometer to show 330 km / h. Dahler will release only 500 copies of the X7 Dark Shadow Edition.
Not so long ago, AutoTimesNews wrote that the unsuccessful tuning of the BMW X5 was presented on the Internet. Things are so bad with the design of this crossover that Internet users have already labeled it as the ugliest BMW.
