We’ve already seen just a few spy photographs of the brand new, facelifted BMW 7 Sequence and ALPINA B7, the latter being primarily based on the previous. So we’re already fairly acquainted with how they’re each going to look. Although, that is the primary time we’re seeing both of them in movement, in some new spy video that’s surfaced.
On this new video, we see the brand new ALPINA B7 taking to the famed Nurburgring to do some pre-production testing. The brand new B7 is clearly primarily based on the brand new 7 Sequence, so it will get the identical refresh because the BMW. Meaning it, too, has Kidney Grilles the dimensions of a Tyrannosaur’s nostrils. Although, I need to say that the ALPINA seems a bit higher than the common 7er up to now, because of its decrease entrance fascia and physique package, which type of offsets the huge grilles.
Out again, it additionally seems fairly good. The brand new taillights appear slim and actually work effectively with the look of the quad exhausts beneath them. So it seems low, it seems vast and it seems sporty.
It additionally appears quite athletic, having the ability to tuck its nostril into corners with shocking agility for such a big automotive. I beforehand drove the present ALPINA B7 and was shocked at its athleticism. It’s no M2 after all, nevertheless it’s a significantly better athlete than its measurement would counsel. It’s swish in its actions, although. Skinny Demarcus Ware of Dancing with the Stars, no Tremendous Bowl-winning, pass-rushing Demarcus Ware.
Below the hood, there’s probably not going to be very many adjustments, if any in any respect. This isn’t a completely new mannequin however a refreshed one. So it’ll nonetheless probably pack the identical four.four liter twin-turbocharged V8, which has been specifically-tuned by ALPINA to make 600 hp and 590 lb-ft of torque. So it ought to nonetheless be a leather-lined cruise missile.
