Alpina unveils B7 sports sedanSeptember 10, 2019
At the international motor show in Frankfurt, a powerful full-size sedan Alpina B7 is presented.
The Alpina B7 is a luxurious and high-performance full-size sedan whose advanced design gives it more advantages over the standard BMW 7-Series on which it is based.
New intercoolers, improved intake geometry, a customizable large-volume cooling system and a silent four-circuit exhaust installation help the 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8 generate an additional 77 hp. As a result, a power of 600 horsepower is transmitted to all four wheels through an 8-speed automatic transmission ZF, and allows the sedan to quietly accelerate to 100 km / h in 3.6 seconds, and up to 200 km / h in 11.9 seconds. and develop a top speed of 330 km / h.
A redesigned all-wheel drive system that transfers up to 85% of power to the rear wheels, a reinforced rear axle that increases stiffness, adaptive shock absorbers and integrated active steering give the B7 the necessary maneuverability. Light pressure on the brakes, and four-piston fixed calipers shift almost the entire weight of the two-ton sedan back forward, providing sufficient braking power.
But elegance is the name of the game, as a result of which only cornering skills are available. And it’s hard to make elegance without a cabin, which is equally capable. Fortunately, most of the high-quality standard 7 interior elements are portable. And almost all of his safety systems are also: standard Alpina equipment – such as adaptive cruise control with a “stop and work” function, lane centering technology, a traffic jam elimination system, a camera with three-dimensional vision and even a night vision system.
Alpina Lavalina’s exclusive high-quality leather covers almost any surface within sight, including seats, dashboard, steering wheel and door sills. For information, Rolls-Royce is contracting with Alpina to customize some of its cars. The leather is successfully combined with a smooth, custom-made wooden finish (in Piano or Luxury versions), as well as many Alpina inscriptions on door sills, floor mats, center console, head restraints, etc.
