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.

    Actually the 173 mph are a step backwards for Alpina. They used to be totally unlimited until now… So the old B7 ran over 300 kph and the new one is limited to 280, not really an advantage ;-)

    Does anyone know what the deal is with the badging on Alpinas? I always thought Alpinas were exclusively badged with the Alpina logo, but it does seem like some Alpinas have BMW badging as well.

    If you mean the badge above the kidneys and on the trunk, then you are completely wrong. All Alpinas have a BMW-roundel on there, at least all original Alpinas. Everything else is fake. The Alpina-sign above the kidneys and on the trunk has been installed by some people, but it is not an original part. You find this thing only on the steering wheel and perhaps on the seats in cars that are 100% original.
