2017 BMW Alpina B7 – Interior and Exterior Design. The appearance of the all-new BMW Alpina B7 xDrive is defined by athletic flair and elegance. The Alpina design and aerodynamic elements emphasize its performance character, with the front and rear spoiler striking a harmonious balance and highlighting the powerful presence of the 2017 BMW Alpina B7 xDrive. The design blends form and function – the aerodynamic components reduce lift on the front and rear axles to almost zero for maximum driving stability at all speeds. Openings at the front of the vehicle allow the precise and effective flow of air to the individual components of the high-performance cooling system. The iconic BMW kidney grille is fitted with an integrated air flap control system that adapts to the BMW Alpina B7 xDrive’s cooling needs: when closed it further reduces the level of aerodynamic drag.
The 20-inch Alpina Classic wheels with twenty spokes and concealed air valves give the powerful BMW Alpina B7 xDrive a touch of elegance and lightness. In the interests of weight reduction and a striking technical appearance, the optional 21-inch Alpina Classic forged wheels with visible wheel bolts do not feature concealed air valves and wheel caps.
The Alpina sports exhaust system features two elliptical twin tailpipes that reflect the performance of the all-new BMW Alpina B7 xDrive and its powerful V8 engine. They are precisely integrated in the rear apron and give the rear a smooth, elegant look.
The exclusive paint finishes in Alpina Blue metallic and ALPINA Green metallic are a hallmark feature reserved solely for BMW Alpina automobiles. Other BMW and BMW Individual paint finishes are also available for the 2017 BMW Alpina B7 xDrive.
An extensive range of standard equipment ensures maximum well-being and comfort, including high-end Nappa leather, comfort seats, a leather-covered instrument panel, ceramic inserts on selected control elements and soft close doors. Equipment features that enhance effortless driving also come as standard in the new BMW Alpina B7 xDrive, such as a full-color Head-Up Display, a rear view camera, the latest BMW navigation and communication and infotainment systems.
The new 4.4 liter 8-cylinder engine with twin-turbo charging, gasoline direct injection and Valvetronic delivers an impressive output of 600 horsepower between 5,750 rpm and 6,250 rpm, while the maximum torque of 590 lb-ft is available from 3,000 rpm. The resulting performance figures are considerable – the all-new BMW Alpina B7 xDrive accelerates in just 3.6 seconds from 0 to 60 mph (96 km/h), 0.8 seconds faster than its predecessor while reaching a top speed of up to 193 mph / 310 km/h (preliminary figure). The power output of this smooth high-tech engine unfolds with impressive emphasis across the entire rpm range. Excellent throttle response and high torque ensure that even at low engine speeds driver inputs are immediately transformed into forward acceleration.
The BMW Alpina B7 xDrive utilizes a new generation of the excellent 8-Speed Sport Automatic Transmission with Alpina Switch-Tronic. Further refined and adapted to the performance characteristics of the high-torque V8 twin-turbo in collaboration with ZF, the transmission offers exceptional driving comfort in all situations. In Automatic Mode the combination of eight gears and high engine torque makes for relaxed, luxurious cruising at low engine rpm even when travelling at higher speeds.
