THE ALPINA DESIGN.
The appearance of the new BMW ALPINA B7 xDrive is defined by athletic flair and elegance. The BMW ALPINA design and aerodynamic elements emphasize its performance character, with the front and rear spoiler striking a harmonious balance and highlighting the powerful presence of the BMW ALPINA B7 xDrive. The design blends form and function – the aerodynamic components reduce uplift on the front and rear axles to almost zero for maximum driving stability at all speeds. Openings at the front of the vehicle allow the precise and effective flow of air to the individual components of the high-performance cooling system. The iconic BMW kidney grille is fitted with an integrated air flap control system that adapts to the BMW ALPINA B7 xDrive’s cooling needs: when closed it further reduces the level of aerodynamic drag.
THE ALPINA WHEELS.
The new BMW ALPINA B7 xDrive will be available with either 20” or 21” wheels with Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires. The 20” format will consist of 255/40 ZR20 tires at the front and 295/35 ZR20 tires at the rear, mounted on 8.5 x 20 and 10 x 20 BMW ALPINA CLASSIC wheels respectively. New lightweight 21” forged wheels take the traditional 20-spoke BMW ALPINA CLASSIC design in a new minimalistic and technical direction. Forging results in high-density and high-strength aluminum alloy which enables a weight-optimized construction that saves 2.5 kg of unsprung mass per wheel.
THE ALPINA EXHAUST SYSTEM.
The stainless steel BMW ALPINA sports exhaust system is responsible for a reduction in back pressure and weight, its sonorous sound is typically V8. Active exhaust valves allow the driver to influence the sound experience by switching between Comfort and Sport Mode. A typical BMW ALPINA feature: the two twin tailpipes of the exhaust system are integrated elegantly and aesthetically into the rear bumper.
