BMW Alpina B7 BiTurbo Specifications
Alpina B7 has received the best engine upgrade that will make this car stands out in its class. This fabulous car is equipped with sophisticated 4.4 L V-8 petrol twin turbo engine. The engine is complemented with gasoline direct injection and valvetronic that’s able to generate powerful 608 HP with 5.750 to 6.250 rpm. At 3000 rpm, this car can generate 590 pound feet of torque.
This exceptional engine can help to reach up to 193 mph top speed with only 3,6 seconds from 0 to reach 60 mph. If we compare this speed with its predecessor, it’s clear that this car is faster by almost a second. This car also gets the Alpina switch-tronic gearbox with 8 speed automatic transmission which will make driving becomes a more remarkable experience. The fuel consumption is 10,4 L/100 km. Not the most eco-friendly car out there. But with a very powerful engine, this is very understandable.
