2020 BMW Alpina B7 Test Drive Review: The Definition Of Cool

  • Published on 10 months ago

    The #BMW M Division creates the company's ultimate models. Or do they? You see, a German company called #Alpina works closely with BMW to develop its own fast versions of the company's models, one of which has just been refreshed for the 2020 model year.
    We had a chance to drive the 2020 Alpina #B7, which was just updated alongside the BMW 7 Series. It now features more power, new engine software, revised transmission logic, and the larger grille found on the standard 7 Series.
    Under the hood sits a 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8 that Alpina has tuned to produce 600 horsepower and 590 lb-ft of torque. It provides buttery smooth acceleration up to 60 mph in 3.5 seconds with a top speed of 205 mph.
    With bespoke materials and unparalleled ride comfort, the Alpina B7 is now our favorite BMW model on sale today. It simply feels special, which it should do given its price tag of $141,700.

And I just watch a video just this afternoon about the 10 worst cars that depreciate the most after the first 5 years! Guess which was one of the top worst cars. YUP!! The BMW 7 Series (Alpina B7 particularly)!! Check this out!! After 5 years, this beautiful awesome car with the awesome interior that costs (what did you mumble?) over $200,000.00 buckaroos, will LOSE, wait for it, wait, wait, $$$$$$$$$$$$ 72% of it's value after only 5 years!!!! 'DO THE MATH"!! I guess the rich or the bigs companies who give these things to their CEOs, etc., don't have to worry about those kinds of things. Us little guys, or at least myself would say BMW stick this POS money pit Up.......!!!!

BMW's are too expensive to maintain, this car will be junked in 10 years or less due to tens of thousands in repair bills for over priced parts and under developed valve stem seals. Germany is bankrupt, BMW is over engineered crap that works for a while then falls apart like an British made car. You don't see old BMWs on the road.

This is the best looking 7er ever and I’m not a fan of modern cars. It is beautiful and an Alpina which gives you BMW M but with genuine royal level of comfort and styling. This is RUF level of car but in BMW flavor. Only thing I’d change is interior color to a caramel from the E39 M5 or a tobacco dark brown. I’d like to see the iconic Alpina livery panted down the sides too in a semi stealth color to be there but not shout.

There is also a B5 from Alpina with the same engine as sedan and touring (wagon). But I don't know, if the are available in the US. The touring would certainly be a rare sight ..,

I would have the rarity of this beast being an Alpina would make it more sought after letting the seller name his or her price. If I had 150 grand to spend on a car I might be put off by that depreciation factor.

limited ONLY to the amount of people who are willing to buy. They don't put numbers on it they just call it out at the end of the year so its not a limited edition car…..

@B Nobody knows what they are and people think it just a aftermarket tuned BMW ... journalists calling it a "tuned BMW" don't help. Actually the depreciation isn't worse than a regular 7-series, but it should be a lot better considering how special they are.

@Doodle Vision you could be in Antarctica, or the sands of the Sahara, it would be universally regarded as a beautiful colour. Its the very definition of.. In my opinion.. The actual shape of the vehicle it sits on could be the ugliest and it would still be eye-catching..

There is way too much mandatory all wheel drive coming from luxury brands. I miss the choice of all wheel drive and rear wheel drive.

M5 has the option.. You can have it in XDrive or hit the button and straight rear wheel…. I drove the Competition and hitting that M button taking off the all wheel is insane. A total rocket ship!

Most automakers are going to AWD because consumers want better 0-60 times and it helps sell to more markets.

“Alpina works closely with BMW and their processes are integrated into BMW's production lines, thus Alpina is recognized by the German Ministry of Transport as an automobile manufacturer, in contrast to other performance specialists which are aftermarket tuners. For instance, the Alpina B7 is produced at the same assembly line in Dingolfing, Germany (BMW Plant Dingolfing), as BMW's own 7 Series. The B7's twin-turbo 4.4-litre V8 is assembled by hand at Alpina's facility in Buchloe, Germany, before being shipped to BMW for installation, and the assembled vehicle is then sent back to Alpina for finishing touches.” Still a decent review though.
