The ALPINA B7 facelift is the most powerful 7 Series variant at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show. As usual, the refining experts from Buchloe have not fallen behind and upgraded the 7 Series Facelift to the ALPINA standard within a very short time. We saw the B7’s world premiere last month in Palm Springs where the company introduced the luxurious and powerful limousine in the iconic ALPINA Green color.
The live photos from Geneva now show the extremely powerful luxury sedan in ALPINA Blue and with the ALPINA Classic alloy wheels – a combination that has turned generations of sedans from Buchloe into real eye-catchers.
Just like the base model from Munich, the BMW ALPINA B7 facelift also wears an imposing double kidney, which clearly separates it from the B5 and B3 model. The central air intake is the defining design feature of the new 7 Series and, together with the new taillight design, including a light bar strip, which clearly distinguishes it from the previous B7.
While BMW takes a few coals out of the fire of the M760Li and throttles the performance as a result of the integration of the gasoline particulate filter from 610 to 585 hp, ALPINA remains at the usual high level. The V8 biturbo behind the rear wheels of the BMW ALPINA B7 facelift has been thoroughly adapted to continue to pamper the driver with 608 hp and a maximum torque of 800 Newton meters.
The preservation of the status quo is only one part of the good news from Buchloe: Because nominal power and torque are available much earlier and in a wider rev range than before, the BMW ALPINA B7 Facelift is supposed to convey even more sovereignty than before. With 3.6 seconds for the sprint from 0 to 100 and a top speed of 330 km/h, the performance also makes clear that the ALPINA B7 continues to push the laws of physics.
The pricing reflects the performance and luxury of the B7 Facelift, which will sell for 154,800 euros in Germany. An individually designed model, such as the vehicle from the 2019 Geneva Motor Show, can effortlessly surpass this figure by several tens of thousands of euros.
