ALPINA’S NEW B7

Feb 25, 2019
Despite the fact that BMW offers a 6.6-liter V12 in the 7-Series, that isn’t the engine you’ll find under the hood of the Alpina’s B7. Instead, the B7 uses a 4.4-liter V8 with two twin-scroll turbochargers tuned to 600 hp and 590 lb-ft of torque, paired with an eight-speed sport automatic transmission by ZF.

Alpina says that the B7 can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in just 3.5 seconds, on its way to a top speed of 205 mph. The previous version of the B7 was just a fraction slower, pulling off launches in 3.6 seconds and boasting a top speed of 194 hp.

On the inside Alpina has reworked the cabin in its usual style, with plenty of leather. Since a good number of these cars will be chauffeur-driven in real life, as an option Alpina also offers Rear Executive Lounge Seating, designed to maximize rear seat comfort and connectivity.

How much does a 205-mph luxury sedan with 600 hp on tap cost? The B7 will start at $142,695 in the U.S., and it already comes with just about all the options you’ll need. As far as 200-mph-plus cars go, this appears to be quite a bargain, one which will be available starting in the second half of 2019.
