Production 2016 Alpina B7 Spied Wearing Little Camouflage

It was about time Alpina got its new B7 model out to play, and our spy photographers were right there to snap some shots of the beautiful limousine. As it turns out, this is the first time the car was spotted in full production guise.

How can we tell? Well, let’s just say that in the case of Alpina, not many things change from one model to the other. Clear indicators can be seen up front where the bumper is lower and wider, with the typical Alpina shape that has been fascinating us for over 50 years now.

Then you could take a look at the rear end where the same story applies, this time the quad-tailpipes used on this car being the production ones due to their size and design. There’s also a small lip included in the mix, on the boot lid that is supposed to add downforce at high speeds.

Other than that, a lot more changes will await inside the car and under the hood. The thing is, since the new G11 7 Series is bringing an enormous improvement in terms of both build quality and the materials used inside, it will be hard for the Bovensiepen family to up the ante even further. However, given that they managed before, we’re pretty sure they will do it again.

As for the engine choice, the same approach could be employed, since the 4.4-liter V8 twin-turbo mill used for the previous B7 is still in production. You can find it under the hood of the new 750i model making 450 HP and 650 Nm (479 lb-ft) of torque.

On the Alpina products, however, it is tuned to produce 540 HP and 800 Nm (590 lb-ft) of torque, numbers drastically higher attained due to a revised intake, new exhaust and turbochargers.

The new car should be unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show next year and it will have a price tag well over €100,000. The confirmation for this comes from Alpina themselves, as they are no longer offering old B7 models for sale and have taken them down from the online configurator.
