ALPINA releases a teaser video of their upcoming B7 model based on the new generation G11/G12 BMW 7 Series.

The new flagship BMW ALPINA B7 G11/G12 will make its official world premiere at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show in 2016 in March. The new BMW ALPINA B7 is – like its predecessor – powered by a V8 biturbo, based on the BMW N63 engine and probably making at least 600 horsepower.

Just as before, the ALPINA B7 Biturbo will be offered with a short or long wheelbase, and with rear and all-wheel drive available. Externally, the sedan from Buchloe will go through the typical ALPINA design process – a new set of wheels, a slightly redesigned front and rear bumper, a discrete boot lid and a custom exhaust system with two oval tailpipes.

Inside the cabin, we expect to also see typical ALPINA touches, from a higher quality leather to unique trims and materials.

Here is the teaser video:

    it will be a V12 not v8

      B7s only had/have either an inline 6 or a V8 engine, depending on the model. Only B12s had V12 engines.

      It’s 760 only, they have an agreement with BMW. All their cars’ aspect respect a certain logic to not step on BMW’s footing.

      Source? Don’t say Scott again :)

      The only Alpina 7 series’ to be fitted with V12’s were the E32 B12, and E38 B12.

      Prior to that Alpina 7 series’ used Inline 6’s, but were called B11’s… in some markets a B9 and B10 was offered, but still with an I6.

      After the B12 models Alpina started using the B7 name for the 7 series, which so far have all been V8’s. Prior to this the models that were called B7’s were either E12’s, E28’s or E24’s.

      the tl;dr version of that is Alpina’s naming has never made much sense, and they don’t currently offer a V12 product ;)

      Although.. with an M760Li being on the cards, I’m wondering if perhaps something may change this time around.
