    BMW ALPINA B7 xDRIVE: THE POWERFUL
    ESSENCE OF MODERN ELEGANCE

    Previously unimaginable levels of technological expertise were wielded in creating the BMW ALPINA B7 xDrive. An ode to the sheer beauty of automotive power, agility and sophistication, this third-generation supercar makes a winning argument for remaining firmly in the driver’s seat.

    Proof of the BMW ALPINA B7’s awe-inspiring power is its 0 to 60 time of a mere 3.6 seconds – 0.8 seconds faster than its formidable predecessor – and a top speed of 193 mph. Under the hood, a 600-hp, 4.4-liter V-8 twin-turbo engine generates maximum torque of 590 lb-ft at just 3000 rpm. All the components of the 8-speed Sport Automatic transmission are designed to harness this output smoothly and efficiently. Manual mode lets you use the ALPINA SWITCH-TRONIC buttons on the back of the steering wheel or the gear selector for hands-on control.

    The vehicle’s ride and handling capabilities are state-of- the-art. Sophisticated ALPINA suspension technology offers all-new levels of personalization, from athletic response to ultimate ride comfort. The 2-Axle Air Suspension system, combined with Dynamic Damper Control and Active Comfort Drive with Road Preview, keep the vehicle level over the roughest surfaces. Thanks to BMW’s lightweight Carbon Core body and Integral Active Steering, the sedan delivers sports car-like levels of agility, direct handling and precise steering. BMW xDrive intelligent all-wheel drive ensures gripping traction on all road surfaces. And a high-performance brake system provides outstanding, fade-resistant stopping power.
