    BMW Alpina B7 with xDrive

    And the Panamera Turbo gets a competitor:

    Now, at the New York International Auto Show, the news gets bigger: the BMW Alpina B7 will also be offered with BMW’s xDrive intelligent all-wheel drive.

    For the first time, ALPINA combines its powerful, torque-laden flagship with an optional all-wheel-drive system for even more traction and active safety in every and any driving situation.

    Re: BMW Alpina B7 with xDrive

    It's incredible how few cars Alpina sell and still stay in business since the 60s

    A long established name with racing pedigree should be more in demand. They are great improvement on standard BMW especially in handling.

     Someone mentioned a problem with resale of tuned cars and Alpina are conceived as such?

    If only they sell this car in Canada.................


    Re: BMW Alpina B7 with xDrive

    e30 Alpina models sell for more than the M3s of the time. They do great work, glad to see their newest interpretation of the 7series.

    indeed shifting is ancient technology - so is a fuel burning engine..  I happen to like both :)

    Great tech and all, as usual, but they can make a spoiler worth a shit. Still using the ol' stick a lip and side skirt tuning technique. I guess they dont have the resources or will power to make any interesting changes to the original body parts.

    I would take mine with alpina wheels and alpina stickers + all the good tech but left the body changes out along with freaky interior concepts!
