The BMW ALPINA B7 Bi-Turbo, first introduced in 2009

Updated: November 21, 2013


The BMW ALPINA B7 Bi-Turbo, first introduced in 2009, has undergone a number of enhancements this summer to coincide with BMW’s update of the 7 Series. Besides discreet  design changes to the front and rear, it is the new and more dynamic ALPINA front spoiler which is most noticeable. More significant though, especially for those in the driver’s seat, are the substantial advancements with regards to the engine and transmission. More power, more performance and more efficiency! The B7 Bi-Turbo now benefits from the newest ALPINA V8 Bi-Turbo engine generation with 540hp and 730Nm of torque. Power is transferred to the wheels via the new 8-speed Sport-Automatic transmission with SWITCH-TRONIC, which in combination with the engine’s Valvetronic intake technology is responsible for higher efficiency and lower emissions. The BMW ALPINA B7 Bi-Turbo remains the benchmark in terms of luxurious performance, chassis technology and hand-finished exclusivity.


Optional ALL-WHEEL-DRIVE (xDrive)

Optionally ALPINA combines the B7 Bi-Turbo with an all-wheel-drive system for even more traction and active safety in every and any driving situation. The all-wheel-drive version of the B7 Bi-Turbo exploits the technical potential of BMW’s xDrive System and its intelligent and dynamic distribution of drive power. It continuously and fully variable distributes torque between the front and rear axle within milliseconds.


ALPINA’s unique mapping of the torque distribution markedly enhances driving dynamics and agility, especially when cornering, enabling unexpected levels of sporty handling. In addition to offering maximum available traction under acceleration, the system provides exceptional levels of active safety by constantly monitoring the driving situation and distributing torque accordingly.


Unique: in combination with the electronic suspension, consisting of Variable Damper Control and Dynamic Drive (active roll stabilisation), the driver can influence the dynamic torque distribution of the all-wheel-drive system using the Drive Dynamic Control buttons to select between the programs.
