2020 BMW Alpina B7
BMWs transformed by Alpina demonstrate the not-so-subtle differences between a badge snob and a car connoisseur. Whereas Bradley Braggart will barge into a showroom looking for the most expensive sedan with the biggest engine-such as the range-topping, V-12-powered BMW M760i-Monsieur Connoisseur will politely inquire about something finer and rarer. Something like the 2020 BMW Alpina B7.
At first blush, the redesigned B7 resembles the BMW 7-series upon which it's based. Both attract unprovoked comments and sideways glances due to their grandiose proportions and that gratuitously large kidney grille. However, the Alpina has a statelier aesthetic. Combined with its signature 20-spoke wheels and stylish (albeit subtle) body kit, the $153,195 B7 we tested was made more fabulous by its exclusive Alpina Green paint. Although everyone who approached us immediately recognized the BMW roundel on the B7's nose and rump, the Alpina lettering on the blue brake calipers and the bottom of the front bumper is a mystery to non-enthusiasts.
The result is insanely quick acceleration for a car that tipped our scales at 4940 pounds. The B7 practically teleported to 60 mph in just 3.2 seconds and covered the quarter-mile in 11.4 seconds at 123 mph. (That's quicker than the last 797-hp Dodge Challenger Hellcat Redeye we tested.) Meanwhile, the 2020 M760i we tested took 3.7 seconds to hit 60 mph and clocked 12.0 seconds flat at 119 mph in the quarter-mile. The B7 never surrenders its lead, either. Even its claimed top speed of 205 mph betters the M760i's governed limit by 50 mph. To corral all that momentum, the Alpina employs massive front and rear brakes with rotors that measure 15.6 inches up front and 15.7 inches out back. Not only did the brake pedal provide firm and consistent feedback, the brakes helped haul the big B7 to a stop from 70 mph in only 151 feet. That's 17 fewer than the M760i needed and somehow identical to an M2 Competition we tested.
