Harmonious design and skilful honing of the automobile as a whole have always been the hallmark of ALPINA.
Unquestionably these characteristics find their ultimate expression in the BMW ALPINA B7 Bi-Turbo which blends a high-performance drivetrain with a well balanced chassis and exquisite interiors only luxury sedans can offer. Electronically adjustable suspension and active roll stabilisation will satisfy both sporting and comfort drivers.
Powered by a 4.4 Liter V8 with Bi-Turbo charging which delivers 397 kW (540 hp) at a moderate 5200 rpm and a maximum torque of 730 Nm between 2800 to 5000 rpm, the B7 Bi-Turbo is capable of achieving astonishing performance figures, accelerating from 0 to 100 km/h in only 4.6 seconds and reaching a top speed of 312 km/h. The combined fuel consumption according to the ECE norm ranges between 9.9 to 10.4 l/100 km and 230 to 242 g/km CO2 depending on the model.
Alpina B7 Aerodynamics
A clear design language that combines technology and stylish features characterises all BMW ALPINA automobiles and allows connoisseurs to easily recognise their heritage. Although components which influence aerodynamics may also have an aesthetic function, their construction and form follows strictly aerodynamic principles. The design of the front spoiler with discreet ALPINA logo ensures effective air flow to the extensive high-performance cooling system demanded by powerful turbocharged engines.
In combination with the rear spoiler, depending on model, this results in excellent and very balanced aerodynamic properties and a maximum reduction of lift, which is of central importance for stable and safe handling – particularly at higher speeds. The rear apron is designed to elegantly surround the two double-ended tailpipes of the exhaust system.
Naturally, no limits are set on the personal predilections of customers. From the paintwork to the interior trim to the colour of the upholstery – everything offered by the extensive BMW and ALPINA equipment range is available. Seldom does a BMW ALPINA leave Buchloe without making use of the almost limitless personalisation options offered by the ALPINA manufactory.
BMW ALPINA interiors are characterised by an elegant and exclusive ambience with typical ALPINA attributes, offering high comfort and practical features as well as extensive standard equipment.
There are almost no limits to the design and configuration possibilities of the interior. Alongside a large selection of colours and materials from BMW and BMW Individual, the ALPINA manufactory offers a wide range of personalisation options.
Small and stylish details round off the identity of every interior. This includes the door sills, metal emblems in the seat backrests and in the floor mats, and of course the exclusive production plaque with model-specific build number. In combination with a BMW upholstery there are a host of additional design possibilities and individualisation options, for example classic ALPINA diagonal rhomb applications in the seat backrests, embossings and other decorative elements.
The hand-finished ALPINA sports steering wheel is covered with the finest LAVALINA leather and features parallel stitching in traditional in Blue and Green. The ergonomic SWITCH-TRONIC shift buttons are integrated neatly into the rear side of the steering wheel. The steering wheel is easily individualised to your personal taste – the stitching can be matched to the upholstery, the rim thickened or the material changed to Alcantara.
In addition to the exclusive ALPINA interior trim made of classic fine wood or modern piano lacquer and featuring a discreet logo, it is also possible to choose from a wide range of BMW alternatives. A particularly luxurious option is to cover the interior trim in finest LAVALINA or sporty carbon leather.
