BMW ALPINA B7 Model Years

Overview

Research by Year
, Automotive Editor -

BMW has never had a 7 Series M to rival performance-tuned competitors from Mercedes-Benz, Audi and Jaguar. So the Alpina B7 is the next-best thing for customers who think of an ordinary 7 Series sedan as insufficiently athletic. Alpina has long been tuning BMWs, but in 2007 the B7 became the first Alpina sold through US BMW dealers.

The current model—based on the 750i—is an exclusive vehicle with only 500 units allocated per year, and available in short- or long-wheelbase versions. The twin-turbocharged V8 pumps out 540 horsepower and produces more low-end torque than a standard BMW V8 thanks to larger turbos.

Major changes included:

In 2011, after a two-year hiatus, the B7 Alpina returned as a tuned version of the revised 7 Series. This new Alpina B7 featured sleeker body lines, a thinner-looking rear end, a new shoulder line running the length of the car, and revised headlights and taillights. The second-generation Alpina B7 used a twin-turbocharged variant of the 4.4-liter V8 engine to produce the same 500 horsepower and 516 pound-feet of torque.

Major changes included:

The BMW Alpina B7’s first generation debuted in 2007, as a high-performance variant of the 7 Series sedan. Alpina -- a famed BMW tuner in Germany -- fitted the 7 Series with 21-inch wheels, a body kit and rear spoiler to create the aggressive look that the Alpina B7 required. Under the hood, the Alpina B7 tuned the stock 4.4-liter V8 from 325 horsepower and 330 pound-feet of torque to 500 horsepower and 526 pound-feet of torque.
