The new Alpina BMW B7 has been enhanced in-line with updates to the 2013 BMW 7-Series Sedan including more power, more performance, and more efficiency. The new B7 features 40 additional horsepower (now rated 540 hp) and 22 lb-ft more torque (up to 538 from 516 lb-ft) thanks to the addition of BMW’s Valvetronic throttle-less intake technology and a new Alpina 8-speed high performance transmission. Top speed is now a fierce 194 mph (drag-limited, 193 mph with xDrive), up from the previous 175 mph. Acceleration drops into the low-mid-4-second range for all variants (4.3-4.4 seconds). The Alpina BMW B7 Sedan remains the benchmark in terms of luxurious performance, chassis technology, and hand-finished exclusivity.
Each variant of the updated Alpina BMW B7 (including Standard Wheelbase, Long Wheelbase, sDrive, and xDrive) will arrive with over 30 new parts which enhance the design and frontal aerodynamics to more effectively channel the cooling air required to manage the increased power output. New BMW kidney grilles, updated Xenon Adaptive headlights, LED front fog lights, and updated tail lights are also included. Other now-standard features will include ceramic secondary controls, engine Automatic Start-Stop, and the Active protection system. Optionally, the B7 Sedan will offer Full LED Headlights, Bang & Olufsen Surround Sound System, new exterior colors and interior upholstery choices in-line with the 7-Series update. Renewed BMW individual color and trim offerings complete the package. The appearance remains unmistakable on signature 21″ Alpina Classic 20-spoke wheels and stunning Alpina Blue Metallic paint.
The Alpina BMW B7 pricing are $128,495 (B7 Standard Wheelbase), $131,495 (B7 SWB with xDrive), $132,395 (B7 Long Wheelbase), and $135,395 (B7 LWB with xDrive) including $895 destination and handling.
