If the 7 Series is the ultimate BMW, the Alpina B7 is the ultimate 7 Series car. The German tuner has been upgrading BMWs for more than 50 years, and the latest 7 Series creation to roll out of its shop has big power and a big top speed – 205 mph to be exact.
The car uses a twin-turbo 4.4-liter V8 delivering 600 horsepower and 590 lb-ft of torque. This is the same as the last engine, but Alpina has upgraded the intercoolers and engine management software to deliver more low-end torque and better throttle response. The B7 also gets a new eight-speed gearbox and revised xDrive all-wheel-drive system. The air suspension can raise or lower itself depending on the drive mode and uses cameras to scan the road and adjust as needed.
The 2020 B7’s top speed makes it the fastest sedan you can buy today, beating even the Dodge Charger Hellcat. The starting price will be a stout $142,695, up more than $2,000 over the 2019 model.
