If the 7 Series represents the ultimate in BMW luxury, then the Alpina B7 qualifies as a supernatural specimen. You get a museum-quality interior overflowing in indulgences, along with a level of athleticism that defies the very nature of a full-size sedan. With too many attributes to count, the B7 makes the notion of the perfect automobile seem possible.

Choosing Your BMW Alpina B7
Think of the B7 as a 7 Series that's graduated from the finest finishing school, namely Alpina, a German company that specializes in tuning BMWs. For starters, the 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8 engine is highly modified to produce 540 horsepower, up from 445 on the 750i. An eight-speed automatic transmission and a selectable driving mode system are standard.
Handling benefits from meticulous suspension tuning and summer performance tires on 21-inch wheels. (All-season tires and 19-inch wheels are now available at no cost.) Like other 7 Series sedans, the Alpina comes with rear- or all-wheel drive and your choice of wheelbases (standard or extended).
The B7 shines inside with wood trim harvested from Alpina's private forest, exclusive leather upholstery and a unique heated steering wheel. Comfort features include heated and ventilated front seats with driver memory, heated rear seats, a power rear sunshade and four-zone climate control.
As expected, technology is present in full force with a head-up display, voice controls, navigation, Bluetooth phone and audio, a rearview camera, parking sensors, adaptive LED headlamps and a bundle of integrated smartphone apps. The 10-speaker Harman Kardon surround-sound system features a six-disc CD/DVD changer and satellite radio.
The extended-wheelbase B7 can get a Luxury Rear Seating package featuring two individual seats with ventilation, massage and power adjustments. A dual-screen rear entertainment system is available with both wheelbases.
The optional Driver Assistance Plus package adds lane departure warning, blind spot monitoring and a frontal collision mitigation system with pedestrian detection. Standalone options include adaptive cruise control, a 16-speaker Bang & Olufsen surround-sound system and infrared night vision.
The Alpina B7 is obviously a complete luxury car and then some. The extended-wheelbase model with its abundant rear legroom seems geared toward executive transportation applications, not necessarily personal use. If you're obsessive about ride quality, we recommend the newly available no-cost 19-inch wheels and all-season tires. They limit your speed to 130 mph, as if that really matters, but provide an even silkier ride in everyday driving.
