The 2017 Alpina B7 xDrive Is Mind-Blowing
This modified version of the BMW 7 Series G11 was created by a company named Alpina, and it is definitely better in every way when compared to its standard counterpart. Starting off with the visual modifications, the two elliptical twin tailpipes instantly stand out, but we should also mention the bespoke Alpina Blue Metallic and Alpina Green Metallic paintjobs, as they are sure to draw in a few looks as well. Inside, the driver enjoys access to a leather-wrapped instrument panel, a full-color HUD, a modern BMW navigation system, a rearview camera, comfort seats, ceramic inserts and a state-of-the-art communication and infotainment system.
Moving on to the performance upgrades, Alpina’s experts have modified the car’s standard 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8 engine in order to allow it to dish out 600 horsepower and 590 lb-ft of torque. The power is kept in check by an 8-speed Sport Automatic Transmission, which was designed in partnership with ZF with Alpina Switch-Tronic. Other technical improvements include a new inter-cooler, an air intake system, a turbocharger and a new sports exhaust. These allow the 2017 Alpina B7 xDrive to perform a 0 to 60 mph sprint in just 3.6 seconds before moving on to a top speed of 193 mph.
