The BMW ALPINA B7 is one of the most exclusive cars one can buy today. To most Americans, the ALPINA B7 is a bit of a mystery. Essentially, ALPINA takes a BMW 7 Series, bumps up its power, tweaks its suspension, adds more luxury and some of its own unique design touches and it becomes an ALPINA B7. However, it’s so much more than just a tuned 7 Series with “ALPINA” badges on it. It’s more special than the regular 7er.
And then, there is a new level of luxury when you involve the BMW Individual department. Take for example this ALPINA B7 from the now well-known Abu Dhabi Motors. The Middle Eastern dealership has given the B7 the Individual treatment by offering the high-end limousine in a Chestnut Bronze color, paired with Tartufo interior.
The production number is ALLRAD 038, making it one of the first B7 models to run off the production line in Buchloe.
Packing a 608 hp and 590 lb-ft of torque variant of BMW’s 4.4 liter twin-turbocharged V8, the ALPINA B7 is an absolute monster. It’s faster from 0-60 mph than the BMW 750i upon which it’s based, doing the sprint in 3.5 seconds. It also has a top speed of 205 mph, which is staggering for something so big, heavy and luxurious.
The 2017 BMW Alpina B7 has a price tag in the US of $137,995, but an Individual treatment will add at least few thousands dollars extra.
