Irvine BMW Confirms, BMW North America has Announced the All-New 2017 ALPINA B7 xDrive
February 8, 2016 – Irvine, Calif. – Irvine BMW is excited to confirm, BMW North America has announced the third generation of the ALPINA automobiles; the all-new 2017 ALPINA B7 xDrive.
The all-new 2017 B7 is powered by a new 4.4 liter eight-cylinder engine with twin-turbo charging, gasoline direct injection and Valvetronic that delivers an impressive output of 600 horsepower between 5750 rpm and 6250 rpm, while the maximum torque of 590 lb-ft is available from 3000 rpm. The resulting performance figures are remarkable – the all-new BMW ALPINA B7 xDrive accelerates in just 3.6 seconds from 0 to 60 mph, 0.8 seconds faster than its predecessor while reaching a top speed of up to 193 mph.
The BMW ALPINA B7 xDrive utilizes a new generation of the 8-Speed Sport Automatic Transmission with ALPINA SWITCH-TRONIC. Further refined and adapted to the performance characteristics of the high-torque V8 twin-turbo in collaboration with ZF, the transmission offers exceptional driving comfort in all situations. Close gear ratios and a total spread of 7.81:1 improve shift comfort and efficiency. In Automatic Mode, the combination of eight gears and high engine torque makes for relaxed, luxurious cruising at low engine rpm even when traveling at higher speeds.
The ALPINA design and aerodynamic elements emphasize its performance character, with the front and rear spoiler been redesigned compared to the regular 7 Series. The 20-inch ALPINA CLASSIC wheels, with twenty spokes and concealed air valves, are also specific to the BMW ALPINA B7 xDrive. 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. The exclusive paint finishes in ALPINA Blue metallic and ALPINA Green metallic are a hallmark feature reserved solely for BMW ALPINA automobiles. Other BMW and BMW Individual paint finishes are also available for the 2017 BMW ALPINA B7 xDrive.
The 2017 BMW ALPINA B7 will be available in September 2016. Price will be announced closer to market launch.
