The 2017 BMW Alpina B7 will be available in the US starting this summer with a price tag that will kick off at $137,995. That, of course, includes the $995 shipping and handling tax, as you might expect. The lightning fast limousine will now come with a couple more standard features included in the price tag as well.
Of course, this being a top of the range model and wearing the Alpina badging all around, it will come with plenty of goodies on board. However, to those you can now add stuff like Integral Active Steering, Autobahn Package, Display Key, Panorama Moonroof, Wireless Charging with Wi-Fi Hotspot, Gesture Control, Power Side Window shades with TouchSense Ambiance Lightning and front massage seats as standard.
On top of all that, the Alpina B7 Biturbo also comes with its own take on the 4.4-liter V8 engine under the hood, improving BMW’s recipe used for the 750i model it is based on. Therefore, instead of 450 HP and 650 Nm (479 lb-ft) of torque, the Alpina can rely on 600 HP and 800 Nm (590 lb-ft) of torque. All of it is then sent to the four corners of the car via a revised xDrive all-wheel drive system and a similarly upgraded 8-speed automatic gearbox.
The end result is a ballistic missile on wheels, reaching 60 mph from standstill in 3.6 seconds which is roughly 0.8 seconds faster than its predecessor. Furthermore, this full-size sedan will also be capable of reaching a top speed of 193 mph (310 km/h), a figure that is supercar worthy. Even so, you’ll be able to do most of these incredible feats while being massaged comfortably and hugged by Nappa leather.
