03 Aug 2017 | International News : U.K.

Alpina's new supersaloon is now available in the U.K. with a final specification that pushes top speed to an astonishing 330km/h, up from the 311km/h predicted at its Geneva Motor Show launch. With an Alpina-optimised 4.4-litre V8 delivering 600bhp and 800Nm, the new B7 Bi-turbo joins the exclusive group of cars with effortless 322km/h performance.

To help achieve this impressive combination of performance, comfort and driving dynamics, Alpina's 70-strong engineering team has received exceptional access to BMW design data and technical facilities as part of a relationship that reaches back to 1964, when BMW endorsed the quality of Alpina products by awarding the full factory guarantee to BMW vehicles fitted with the new Alpina dual-carburettor system.

At the heart of the new B7 Bi-turbo is a heavily-revised, direct injection V8 breathing through two specially-developed, twin-scroll turbochargers located between the cylinder banks. Alpina's work with transmission supplier ZF is another reason for the exceptional acceleration of the new B7 Bi-turbo, which comes with an eight-speed automatic transmission.

Inside, the new B7 Bi-turbo can be specified with an almost limitless range of options and leather trims, individually-crafted in Alpina's saddlery. Standard equipment on U.K.-market cars includes high-end Nappa leather, a leather-covered instrument panel, ceramic applications on selected control elements, soft close doors, a full-colour head-up display and a rear view camera. Only a small number of Alpina B7s will be available for sale in the U.K.
