About BMW Alpina B7
The BMW Alpina B7 is the fifth generation of high-performance luxury cars. Based on the 750Li, the BMW Alpina B7 uses a modified version of the 4.4L turbocharged V8 engine. The engine features a modified twin-scroll turbocharger. These have larger intake and exhaust pipes and new compressors that increase pressure to 1.4 bar. The standard pistons have been replaced with high-performance MAHLE pistons. The BMW Alpina B7's twin-turbo engine has a specially designed stainless steel exhaust system with four circular exhaust pipes and electronically reversible bypass valves controlled by a dynamic crank next to the gear lever.
The BMW Alpina B7 uses the same eight-speed ZF automatic transmission as the 750i, but Alpina's software has been reprogrammed for faster gear changes. The gearbox also has an improved torque converter, an optional oil cooler, and planetary gears. The pedals have been replaced by buttons on the back of the steering wheel. But the BMW Alpina B7 can still be controlled with those pedals. The world becomes a blur as you hurtle through it at 273 meters per second. The smooth curves of the road become real curves. Trucks traveling at a comfortable speed on motorways pretend to back up.

Slow cars driving in the left lane make a colorful impression. But the Alpine's size and refinement give it a distinct advantage. It's an air-conditioned saloon of unusual design. The sound of wind and tires is quiet and soothing over the speedo. And when the Sport or Sport Plus driving modes are engaged, body control and precise steering are welcome. The BMW Alpina B7 was the most comfortable place to be on a recent trip, even at nearly top speed. The fact that the Continental no longer needs air conditioning is a testament to its luxury car credentials.
The metal plaque on the center console bears the signature of the company founder and the car's serial number. The interior also features carpets with the Alpina logo and illuminated Alpina door handles. The digital instrument cluster was designed specifically for the BMW Alpina B7, with displays changing depending on the selected driving mode. The BMW Alpina B7 will be available for right-hand drive cars from 2017. Other technologies are required to convert to right-hand drive. It is only available in RWD versions.
The updated BMW Alpina B7, based on the redesigned 750Li, was unveiled on February 11, 2019, with an updated powerband that now delivers 608 hp at 5,500-6,500 rpm and a maximum torque of 590 lb-ft at 2,000 rpm. Like its predecessors, the current generation BMW Alpina B7 will begin assembly at BMW's Dingolfing plant along with the 7 Series. The hand-assembled engine will be sent to BMW for installation in the car, after which the car will return to Alpina in Buchloe for final assembly. In the U.S., the B7 is sold through BMW dealers along with the 7 Series. But in Europe, it is sold exclusively through Alpina dealers.
