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.
