Everyone seemed to have enjoyed the recent Alpina B7 photos we have posted yesterday, so we’re returning with more official photos of the B7, the latest Alpina model based on the new 2009 BMW 7 Series.

By now most of you know everything about the B7, but for those of you are are new on here or simply haven’t read much upon the B7, then here are some quick facts:

- V8 4.4 liter twin-turbo engine outputting 505 horsepower

- 517 lb-ft (700Nm) reached at 4,750 rpm

- rear-wheel drive vehicle and it uses the automatic “SwitchTronic” gearbox.

- weighs 4,312 lb (1,960 kg)

    And for those of you that still doubt that the new Alpina B7 is an impressive car, here is what Autocar UK had to say about it:

    “The ride is a triumph, however; sure, road noise is more pronounced from the 21-inch Alpina Classic alloys, but the switch from runflats to bespoke Michelins means that you can trundle around urban roads without much fear of being bounced off your (very comfortable) seat. the B7 is comfortable on worn motorways, too, even at more than 150mph.”

    For those of you that would like to read more about the B7, the following article has plenty of details. For the rest of us, let’s simply enjoy these photos. While the new 7 is trully a classy and beautiful car, the Alpina B7 takes it to another level.

    Still trying to decide which interior we like more: the BMW Individual one or the one by Alpina?

        BMW of NA imported limited amounts of the old Alpina 7 series. So maybe BMW NA will import limited numbers of the new one.
