The new 2020 ALPINA B7 xDrive Sedan

ALPINA Automobiles, together with BMW, is pleased to introduce the updated version of the exclusive ALPINA B7 xDrive Sedan.  The new 2020 B7 is the 6th generation full-size performance-luxury model from ALPINA and the 3rd generation of B7 to be available in Canada.

Besides its much lauded smoothness, the new ALPINA B7 xDrive sedan impresses with its sharpened responsiveness and enhanced power delivery over the entire rpm range. Continuous developments and detailed improvements mean the combination of high torque output and a transmission with great dynamic capabilities results in improved driving performance over its predecessor.


The latest generation 4.4-liter V8 engine with two, twin-scroll turbochargers, direct injection and Valvetronic fully variable valve timing and Double-VANOS variable camshaft timing, delivers 600 hp and 590 lb-ft of torque.


The exhaust side of the turbochargers are equipped with a 54 mm (previously 50 mm) diameter impeller. Additionally, the ALPINA-specific intercoolers feature an interconnection to equalize and reduce pressure pulsations between the two cylinder banks of the V8 engine. This, together with a new engine management software, means that the peak torque of 590 lb.-ft. is now available from only 2000 rpm all the way up to 5,000 rpm (previously 3,000 – 5,000 rpm). This leads to significantly improved throttle response, more engaging power delivery and an effective performance gain in the most relevant rpm range.


All components of the ALPINA high-performance cooling system are designed to remove inefficiencies and maximize effectiveness – special high-volume coolers are interconnected by large diameter piping for maximum throughput. The intercoolers comprise an indirect air to water to air set-up to facilitate short air intake paths. Combined with additional external water coolers and a transmission oil cooler, the system ensures the thermodynamic stability of the twin-turbocharged V8 engine at all times, even under highest loads and high ambient air temperatures.
