The BMW ALPINA B7 made its North American debut at the Chicago International Auto Show in 2010 and sells in the US for $122,875 (standard wheelbase) and $126,775 (extended wheelbase).

The B7 sedan is equipped with BMW’s twin-turbocharged 4.4 liter, all-aluminum, High Precision Direct Injection V-8 engine which has been enhanced by ALPINA and is capable of producing 500 (373kW) horsepower and 516 lb-ft (700Nm) of torque. This rear-wheel drive performance/luxury Sedan achieves 0-60 mph in 4.5 sec. With maximum torque available across an unusually broad engine range, from 3,000 to 4,750 rpm, the B7 accelerates effortlessly from virtually any speed.

In true “form-follows-function” fashion, the ALPINA front integrates the fresh-air requirements of the transmission and engine oil coolers, which are separated out of the main cooler module for improved efficiency. The spoilers reduce lift at the front by 30% and rear by15%. The exhaust system’s two double tailpipes are seamlessly integrated into the rear bumper. The newest evolution of the traditional 20-spoke ALPINA Classic wheels gives the B7 a distinctive appearance and powerful stance.

The interior of the B7 sedan features ALPINA blue illuminated door sill trims, Switchtronic heated steering wheel in hand-stitched Lavalina leather, Alcantara headliner, Heads Up display, and the Black-Panel LCD screen instrument cluster branded with ALPINA. Hand-stitched Lavalina leather also covers the dashboard, door panels, center console, multi-contour front seats with heating and cooling, and heated rear seats.

    someone was speculating something about there being a new ALPINA B7 based on a 760s engine and over 600hp…..thats not going to happen right?

    Enough with the horrific wheels already!

  4. With the twin-turbo engine specs, the new B7 has the ability to pump out 500 hp, which is really impressive for a vehicle of its class, and in my opinion, nothing much could be expected from this vehicle. 

  5. Alpina is gorgeous! I love that shining car! Who knows, maybe someday I’ll become an owner of such a baby;))
