Alpina B7 has come to an end

All good things come to an end, and so does one of the most refined and fastest luxury sedans in the world. It is the last Alpina B7 series, based on the BMW 7 series, that the German company presented to the public.

The Alpina B7 is powered by a 4.4-liter biturbo V8 engine with 608 hp (447 kW) and 590 lb-ft (800 Nm) of torque. That’s enough power for the car to reach 62 mph in 3.6 seconds with a top speed of 205 mph (330 km/h).

Although Alpina is part of the BMW Group, the company has announced that they do not plan to make a model that could be considered a successor to the B7, and the reason for this is BMW’s decision not to allow Alpina to modify the new 7 Series (G70), which will have an electric version. The start of production of this model is planned for July next year.

According to the contract signed two years ago, Alpina will upgrade the models of the Bavarian car giant in its plants in the German city of Buchloe by the end of 2025. After that, all Alpina employees will become employees of BMW or its partners. Buchloe remains one of the bases where Alpina will provide spare parts and service for its cars. Also, the restoration of Alpina’s older editions will be on offer soon.

Meanwhile, Alpina engineers are working on the XB7, which is based on BMW’s largest SUV, the BMW X7.
