Four-wheel drive version of Alpina B7 at New York motor show
31 March 2010

The BMW Alpina B7 Biturbo Allrad has been unveiled at the New York motor show.

As the name suggests, the car is an Alpina B7 with an all-wheel drive system fitted. As with the standard model, the Allrad will be available in short and long wheelbases.

The driver can select between comfort, sport, and sport+ driving modes, which will influence the dynamic torque distribution of the xDrive intelligent all-wheel drive system.

Power comes from a twin-turbo 4.4-litre V8 with 500bhp and 516lb ft of torque.

BMW is also displaying the new BMW 5-Series, updated 3-series coupe and convertible and the facelifted X5 at the New York motor show.

Our Verdict

Alpina B7

The Alpina B7 super-luxobarge makes a modicum of sense on Germany's derestricted autobahns, but not for the UK

Gotta say I love it, especially in that blue :D Pretty hefty amount of torque too

Alpinas are great. Interiors are gorgeous! But I see the new M cars clashing with them with turbo and auto transmissions. BMW should definitely leave M as it was, manual high-revving atmospheric, and market Alpina as another sub-brand, like AMG.

Oh, off road ... okay ... I thought it was an Alpina with an aluminium radiator.

What a shame, the outgoing E65 Alpina looked the nuts.

This new one looks shyte - what's going on with the wheels and the phuq awful bodykit ?
