  • [NEWS] Luxury with A Twist: The 205mph BMW Alpina B7



    Ever find yourself late for a business meeting and your car simply isn't fast enough? Or your car is fast enough but when you arrive you're just too tired to do anything because you suffer from a backache and your sports car rides to firmly? Well, Alpina is here to save the day.



    The Alpina B7 was first revealed about a year ago at the Geneva Motor Show, it has the 4.4L twin-turbo V8 as in the other 7-Series, but Alpina upped the ante with 600 horsepower, whereas a top of the range 7-Series "only" has 444 horsepower.



    The B7 reaches 100km/h in 4.0 seconds, and initially Alpina said the top speed was 193mph, but as it turns out with a set of Michelin Cup Super Sport, the B7 can reach all the way to 205mph. Jolly impressive.





    All well and good, no? Speed, luxury, and comfort. But personally, I'd still get a Bentley.
