2013 Alpina B7 based on Bmw 7-Series

Article by Christian Andrei, on June 15, 2012

After the Bmw 7-Series was updated, it was also time to see a 2013 Bmw Alpina B7! That didn’t take long as the first photos with the brand new vehicle emerged today on the web and the company announced that the B7 will make its North American debut at the historic Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance in August.

Set to go on-sale immediately thereafter, the 2013 Alpina B7 will be priced from: $127,600 (B7 Standard Wheelbase), $130,600 (B7 SWB with xDrive), $131,500 (B7 Long Wheelbase), and $134,500 (B7 LWB with xDrive).

If the previous version delivered 500 hp, the 2013 Alpina B7 features 40 additional horsepower (now rated 540 hp) and 22 lb-ft more torque (up to 538 from 516 lb-ft) thanks to the new Bmw Valvetronic throttle-less intake technology and a new ALPINA 8- speed high performance transmission.

The top speed was increased to 194 mph (drag-limited, 193 mph with xDrive), from 175 mph. The sprint from 0 to 60 mph is made in the low-mid-4-second range for all variants (4.3-4.4 seconds). Other updates for 2013 include new BMW kidney grilles, Xenon Adaptive headlights, LED front fog lights, and new tail lights.

Standard features include ceramic secondary controls, engine Automatic Start-Stop, and the Active protection system. As an option we get Full LED Headlights, Bang & Olufsen Surround Sound System, new exterior colors and interior upholstery choices. The exterior design is still highlighted by the 21-inch Alpina Classic 20-spoke wheels as well as the well-known Alpina Blue Metallic paint.

The new BMW ALPINA B7 has been enhanced in-line with updates to the 2013 BMW 7 Series Sedans including more power, more performance, and more efficiency. The new B7 features 40 additional horsepower (now rated 540 hp) and 22 lb-ft more torque (up to 538 from 516 lb-ft) thanks to the addition of BMW's Valvetronic throttle-less intake technology and a new ALPINA 8- speed high performance transmission.

Top speed is now a fierce 194 mph (drag-limited, 193 mph with xDrive), up from the previous 175 mph. Acceleration drops into the low-mid-4-second range for all variants (4.3-4.4 seconds). The BMW ALPINA B7 Sedan remains the benchmark in terms of luxurious performance, chassis technology, and hand-finished exclusivity.

Each variant of the updated BMW ALPINA B7 (including Standard Wheelbase, Long Wheelbase, sDrive, and xDrive) will arrive with over 30 new parts which enhance the design and frontal aerodynamics to more effectively channel the cooling air required to manage the increased power output. New BMW kidney grilles, updated Xenon Adaptive headlights, LED front fog lights, and updated tail lights are also included.

Other now-standard features will include ceramic secondary controls, engine Automatic Start-Stop, and the Active protection system. Optionally, the B7 Sedan will offer Full LED Headlights, Bang & Olufsen Surround Sound System, new exterior colors and interior upholstery choices in-line with the 7 Series update. Renewed BMW individual color and trim offerings complete the package. The appearance remains unmistakable on signature 21" ALPINA Classic 20-spoke wheels and stunning ALPINA Blue Metallic paint.

The BMW ALPINA B7 is available as a special order vehicle with capacity-limited production underscoring its exclusivity. The B7's body is manufactured in the BMW 7 Series factory (Plant Dingolfing) and hand-finished with the remaining ALPINA components at the ALPINA factory in Buchloe, Germany. This production sequence increases the production schedule by approximately two weeks. European Delivery at the BMW Welt delivery center is available for the BMW ALPINA B7.
