Ever wished BMW will build an M7 to tackle the Mercedes AMG S65? We all did, but the Bavarian manufacturer refused. So Alpina decided to take action and launched the all new B7 xDrive models, ready to reach its first customers in september 2016.

The new Alpina B7 is based on the 750i version of the BMW 7 Series, which means it uses the 4.4 liter 8-cylinder engine with twin-turbo charging, gasoline direct injection and Valvetronic. Thanks to new modifications as the air intake system and the high performance cooling system, the new Alpina B7 delivers an impressive output of 600 hp between 5750 rpm and 6250 rpm, while the maximum torque of 590 lb-ft is available from 3000 rpm. 

The resulting performance figures are great, as a car of this size accelerates in just 3.6 seconds from 0 to 60 mph, 0.8 seconds faster than its predecessor while reaching a top speed of up to 193 mph. 

The stainless steel ALPINA sports exhaust system is responsible for a reduction in back pressure and weight. Active exhaust valves allow the driver to influence the sound experience by switching the Driving Dynamic Control switch between Comfort and Sport Mode.

The 2-axle air suspension system combined with Dynamic Damper Control and Active Comfort Drive with Road Preview keeps the comfort of a limousine while the Active Roll Stabilization minimizes body roll during cornering. Also for the first time, the all-new BMW Alpina B7 xDrive features Integral Active Steering.

The all-new BMW Alpina B7 xDrive is fitted with Michlin Pilot Super Sport tires measuring 255/40 ZR20 at the front and 295/35 ZR20 at the rear, mounted on 8.5 x 20 and 10 x 20 Alpina Classic wheels. New lightweight 21 inch forged wheels take the traditional 20-spoke Alpina Classic design.

Comprising blue painted 4-piston fixed calipers and 15.5 inch discs on the front axle and floating calipers with 14.5 inch discs on the rear axle, the high-performance brake system provides outstanding stopping power and deceleration.

Standard equipment incudes high-end Nappa leather, comfort seats, a leather-covered instrument panel, ceramic inserts on selected control elements, soft close doors, full-color Head-Up Display, a rear view camera, the latest BMW navigation and communication and infotainment systems.
