Here is a biological renewal in German. The newly modernized representative BMW saloon has undergone a strengthening treatment at the court tuning specialist. It’s time for the new BMW Alpina B7.
- BMW 7 Series after tuning Alpina uses a new 4.4 l V8 petrol engine with 608 hp
- The car accelerates to 100 km / h in 3.6 seconds. Top speed — 330 km / h
- Compared with the BMW serial, Alpina improved the soundproofing of the body
The court BMW tuner determines the tuning of the 7 series as an accurate biological regeneration. It does not spare such terms as fresh, modern, strong or the highest standard. In other words, he praises himself with a cure to strengthen a rather powerful car, the BMW 7 Series with a 4.4 liter V8 gas under the hood.
In the BMW emblem 750i stands for 530 HP of power and 750 Nm of torque. After tuning, this power was raised to 608 hp, and the moment to impressive 800 Nm (from 2000 rpm). In practice, this means a maximum speed of 330 km / h. In terms of acceleration, it is also difficult to complain. B7 will embarrass the majority of rivals from the GTI club, because the first 100 km / h reaches after just 3.6 seconds.
The reinforced engine works with the serial 8-speed ZF transmission, whose software has been changed for tuning purposes. Alpina boasts that the program has been specially adapted to the changed characteristics of the new V8 engine. At the same time, the focus was on achieving a compromise between efficiency and comfort. The company promises very smooth operation when driving at low speed, and at the same time a significant reduction in reaction time in sport mode. Interestingly, the individual components of the transmission have been strengthened and the factory cooling system has been improved. According to Alpina, modifications were simply necessary.
The changes also included suspension and torque distribution control. Alpina promises a lower center of gravity (depending on the speed, the suspension lowers or raises by 20 mm) and better handling while maintaining the highest possible level of comfort. The driver has an easier task, because he can take advantage of the ready performance characteristics of the suspension and engine from Comfort and ending with Alpine Sport +.
As standard, the customer receives a car with 20-inch rims with Michelin tires in two sizes. The front tires are 255/40 R20 and rear 295/35 R20. Due to the new tires, it was also decided to modify … standard BMW body soundproofing. Alpina added new insulating materials at the rear wheel arches and at the center pillars. Due to the noise, even the motors in the electrically controlled glass system have been replaced.
Even such luxury models as Alpina B7 can be enriched with additional equipment. The list of options is quite long. Among the additions are various versions of leather upholstery (Nappa, Merino), wooden accessories, ventilated seats, heated steering wheel, panoramic roof or Night Vision driving system. There is also a sound system sponsored by renowned Bowers & Wilkins.
The car will appear on the market only after the holidays. The price on the US market is already well known: over USD 140,000.
