The German refiner of BMW automobiles has today unveiled a car that could
easily be called the M7. The all-new Alpina B7 xDrive stands for luxury paired
with dynamics, performance and comfort at the highest level. The 2017 Alpina B7
will be available in September 2016 at selected BMW dealerships across the US.
Alpina B7: Exterior Design
The appearance of the 2017 Alpina B7 xDrive is defined by athletic flair and elegance. The Alpina design and aerodynamic elements emphasize its performance character, with the front and rear spoiler striking a harmonious balance and highlighting the powerful presence of the 2017 Alpina B7 xDrive. The design blends form and function - the aerodynamic components reduce lift on the front and rear axles to almost zero for maximum driving stability at all speeds. Openings at the front of the vehicle allow the precise and effective flow of air to the individual components of the high-performance cooling system. The iconic BMW kidney grille is fitted with an integrated air flap control system that adapts to the Alpina B7 xDrive's cooling needs: when closed it further reduces the level of aerodynamic drag.
The 20-inch Alpina CLASSIC wheels with twenty spokes and concealed air valves give the powerful Alpina B7 xDrive a touch of elegance and lightness. In the interests of weight reduction and a striking technical appearance, the optional 21-inch Alpina CLASSIC forged wheels with visible wheel bolts do not feature concealed air valves and wheel caps.
The Alpina sports exhaust system features two elliptical twin tailpipes that reflect the performance of the all-new Alpina B7 xDrive and its powerful V8 engine. They are precisely integrated in the rear apron and give the rear a smooth, elegant look.
The exclusive paint finishes in Alpina Blue metallic and Alpina Green metallic are a hallmark feature reserved solely for Alpina automobiles. Other BMW and BMW Individual paint finishes are also available for the 2017 Alpina B7 xDrive.
Alpina B7: Interior and Equipment
An extensive range of standard equipment ensures maximum well-being and comfort, including high-end Nappa leather, comfort seats, a leather-covered instrument panel, ceramic inserts on selected control elements and soft close doors. Equipment features that enhance effortless driving also come as standard in the new Alpina B7 xDrive, such as a full-color Head-Up Display, a rear view camera, the latest BMW navigation and communication and infotainment systems.
Alpina details add exclusivity and individual style to the interior. Hand-finished using exceptionally high-quality LAVALINA leather, the sports steering wheel with blue and green stitching is captivating at the very first touch due to its gentle feel. Timeless Piano lacquer or classic Myrtle Luxury Wood - the Alpina interior trim, door sills with blue illumination, Alpina B7 model inscriptions and an individual production plaque are further examples of exclusive equipment features in the new Alpina B7 xDrive.
Another exclusive Alpina design is the full-color digital instrument panel in LED technology. In Comfort Mode it offers a classic look featuring round instruments with blue background and red needles. In Sport Mode the display changes to a more dynamic design with blue and green drag indicators and a focus on primary information, such as the centrally positioned permanent digital speed read-out.
