“Exclusive” and “powerful” are two ways to describe the 2015 BMW Alpina B7 Sedan. It is a limited, hand-finished production vehicle that can be so customized that it truly becomes personal. The 540-horsepower, 4.4-liter, TwinPower Turbo V8 engine offers 538 lb-ft of torque and hits 0-60 mph in 4.3 seconds.
Customizing this powerful beauty is all about choices and bringing together the best in technology, materials and even mechanics. The interior is top-notch and goes beyond simple color and leather combinations. With hundreds of leather and trim options, passengers can enjoy more than comfort — they can sit in utter luxury designed by the vehicle’s owner. From the dashboard view to the multiple suspension and driving modes, the B7 is truly all about choices.
The Driving Dynamics Control allows the driver to fine-tune the driving experience. Choose from Comfort, Comfort+, Sport and Sport+ to make multiple dynamic changes that include engine-throttle response, shift characteristics, power steering assist and traction control to enhance performance or comfort. The vehicle also has an Eco Pro mode that allows for a more efficient drive economically and environmentally.
The exterior is the 7 series model with two length options for rear-seat comfort. The notable differences are in Alpina styling and the unique badging: the renowned emblem on the specially produced engine, the steering wheel hand-stitched from Lavalina leather and the back seats embossed with the distinct Alpina logo. The signature 21-inch, 20-spoke aluminum wheels are standard and give a classic BMW appeal in a larger wheel size and sophistication beyond what BMW is known for.
