Geneva Motor Show will host many world premieres this year. From the BMW 5 Series GT, to Alpina B6 GT3 and of course, the BMW Alpina B7. For a quite some time we have been following the spy photos of several B7 prototypes being driven around in Germany, and while some of them were sporting very little camouflage, it was still not good enough for us.

But to our surprise, a leaked photo made its way onto the web today, regardless if it was an intentional marketing leak or someone broke some rules, we’re happy to finally see the new B7. But what do you know about the Alpina B7 so far? Powered by a V8 4.4 liter twin-turbo engine, Alpina managed to squeeze out 507 horsepower and an impressive 516 lb-ft of torque. Official numbers show the B7 running from 0 to 60 mph in 4.7 seconds.

The speed limit has also been raised to 173 mph, so that should keep the B7 owners entertained on the german Autobahn. Since the Geneva show is just a few days away, stay tuned on BMWBLOG for more information.
