A quick trip to BMW’s website under the “M” section will show that the M7 isn’t currently listed in their lineup– unfortunate, we agree. If you’re upset about the lack of a more powerful 7-Series, don’t worry, because the new 2017 BMW ALPINA B7 Bi-Turbo is here.
Powering this supercar-like sedan is a 4.7-liter V8 that utilizes BMW’s Bi-Turbo technology. Its power is rated at a remarkable 608 hp and 590 lb-ft of torque. This power flowing through an 8-Speed Sport-Automatic transmission gives the new B7 the ability to run 0-62 mph in 4.2 seconds and hit a top speed of 193 mph, even with a dry weight of 4,541 lbs.
