Under the hood, you get the 4.4 liter V8 twin-turbo engine which gets you from zero to hundred in 6.2seconds. The stock version of this car (the BMW 750Li gets you in 5.3) and top speed at 280 km/h. That is almost a given fact, considering that this tuned-up version is boosted out by some 505 horsepowers and a maximum of 700Nm of torque at 4,750rpm. Switching between gears here would be through its ‘SwitchTronic’ gearbox through its rear-wheel drive system. Essentially, the gearbox is an automatic transmission one, and together with the stability control system and the computer-controlled air suspension systems have all been modified to ensure that the car handles extremely well.

Weighing at 1,920kilograms, the people at Alpina has taken to great lengths to ensure that the car is light enough to accelerate and yet not too light to drift in high speed. Having said that, it is still remarkably lighter than the n 750s which means that t accelerates faster. To ensure that the car balances and handles well, they are fitted in 21 inch wheels with 245 and 285 tyres respectively.

Inside the car, the Alpina character is exuded everywhere starting from the Green Exterior colour, the special wood trim together with its 2 toned green and silver interior sprayed onto its Lavalina leather. On top of that, Alpina has maintained the original BMW 7 series persona where fittings and systems like the iDrive control, the 4-Wheel Steering, the Lane Departure Warning and the Heads Up Display are all preserved.

Seriously, whichever way you see it, the BMW 7 Series had always been eye-candy for any owner. What more if you include all the systems integrated into this car which makes driving it such a breeze (no pun intended). The additions put in by Alpina into this would mean the bridging of 2 high-end corporations and the fusion of technology between 2 of the automotive market leaders which if you just look at it makes you want to own it already.
