Alpina Burkard Bovensiepen GmbH is an automobile manufacturing company based in Buchloe, in the Ostallgäu district of Bavaria, Germany selling their own cars, based on BMW cars. Alpina works closely with BMW and their processes are integrated into BMW's production lines. The Alpina B7 is produced at the same assembly line in Dingolfing, Germany, along with all other BMW 7-Series. Today, the only Alpina offered in the USA is the Alpina B7.
The BMW Alpina B7 is the most powerful and elegant sedan in its class. This car is based off of the 750i/750Li and is almost like what an M7-series
would be if it existed. Fitted with a twin-turbo 4.4-liter V-8 this sedan boasts 540 hp and 538 lb-ft of torque. The Alpina B7 has a sportier look when compared to the traditional 7-Series and is fitted with 21-inch wheels with Alpina’s signature 20-spoke design. This BMW is better equipped and way more elegant that its regular counterpart. The Alpina B7 is respected for its impressive power and desired for
its luxurious interior, just like the luxurious look of the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Jumbo ref. 5402 on our wrist.
Even though the Alpina B7 is a massive car that feels like a tank, it reaches 60 mph from a full stop in only 4.3 seconds. To complete its ultimate sporty look, this car is fitted with front and rear spoilers.
The interior is extremely luxurious featuring a combination of leather with 'alcantara' and a black glossy trim. The car is equipped with all the options that you can think of including a sunroof, the ability to check the speed on the windshield, a rear-view camera, sport driving mode, bluetooth and navigation amongst other features.
Its roomy interior with spectacular finishes will mesmerize you if you happen to buy one or ride in one. Additionally, a discreet CD changer is fitted under the airbag compartment on the passenger side and the car is equipped with powered privacy shades on the rear and passenger windows. The design of the door handles and every line of its interior is exquisite, modern and very sleek.
In the Alpina B7, you can be certain that those riding in the back will have no issues with space or leg room. Even in the short wheel-base model like this one, the leg room is excellent and rear passengers have the ability to control the A/C system with their own controls. Additionally, the back is fitted with a collapsible center arm rest with storage and cup holders.
If you are ready to ride in luxury without compromising power and performance, the Alpina B7 is the ideal car for you. Even though we are huge Porsche enthusiasts, we can tell you that this car drives way better than a Porsche Panamera.
Sticker Price starts at $128,495 USD for the short-wheelbase and at $132,395 for the long-wheelbase. For more info on the BMW Alpina B7 click here.
