The most significant changes are noticeable under the hood where the V8 4.4-liter twin-turbo engine is now 60 bhp (45 kW) and 67 Nm (50 lb-ft) more powerful than it was last year so it now develops an impressive 600 bhp (447 kW) and 799 Nm (590 lb-ft) of torque. All that power is channeled to an xDrive all-wheel drive system through an 8-speed automatic transmission that has been modified by Alpina.
