2017 BMW Alpina B7: A M7 in DisguisePosted by: Lydia Siu onFebruary 10th, 2016
BMW M-cars are some of the most sought after production performance vehicles on the road. With its rich racing heritage, we know that each M car is designed to give drivers the ultimate driving pleasure. What we haven’t seen from BMW, but really wish they would do, is produce an M version of their flagship 7 series. There is definitely appetite for large luxury sedans with supercar performance. Look at the likes from Audi and Mercedes just as an example.
A M7 may not be in the works, but Alpina has given us a taste of what a big body performance sedan from BMW may be like in their new 2017 Alpina B7 xDrive. The B7 uses a tuned 4.4L twin turbo V8 that delivers 600hp and 590lb/ft of torque which helps propel the massive 7 series to 100kph in 3.6 seconds. The Alpina packaged 7 series will have signature Alpina aero, adaptive dampening and four wheel steering to keep all the car at bay, and upgraded braking to ensure all of that B7 goes as fast as it stops.
As with all Alpina cars, the 2017 B7 again delivers an incredible combination of ultra luxury and performance in one big package.
