2012 BMW ALPINA B7 Press Kit


Woodcliff Lake, NJ – November 14, 2011… The BMW ALPINA B7 represents the second generation of ALPINA automobiles based on the BMW 7 Series to be offered in the US. The first BMW ALPINA B7 was offered as a limited edition for the 2007 and 2008 model years. Newly interpreted and based on the current BMW 7 Series platform, the B7 will again set the benchmark in terms of performance, refinement, technology, luxury and exclusivity.

Perfectly suited to drivers who live in foul weather climates, the BMW ALPINA B7 with xDrive will again be offered in standard and long- wheelbase editions, and will enjoy the low-speed traction advantages that only xDrive can provide.

Yielding exquisite levels of power and torque from the twin-turbocharged 4.4 liter V8, and in conjunction with the electronically-adjustable suspension with active roll stabilization, the new B7 promises to offer a spectrum of driving experiences so broad as to be unheard of in this class of automobiles. The evolution of the traditional 20-spoke 21" ALPINA Classic wheels underlines the fresh design language found throughout the B7 and imparts to it a distinctive appearance and powerful stance.

The full complement of BMW 7 Series exterior colors remains available, in addition to the signature ALPINA Blue metallic paint.

The BMW Alpina B7 is the most dynamic of the 7 Series models yielding exquisite levels of power and torque from its engine in conjunction with the electronically-adjustable suspension with active roll stabilization. The new B7 offers a full spectrum of driving experiences and amenities so broad as to be unheard of in this class of automobiles.
