A black example of the new 2009 Alpina B7 has been caught by spy photographers while travelling on a public road. Alpina is known for using multipsoke wheels, bespoke interior and a special blue metallic hue patented as "Alpina Blue" to colour the exteriors of its cars. Besides portions the front bumper and Alpina wheels it appears that most of the car has stayed true to the concept teaser sketch shown last December. The concept sketch was put up on the Alpina official website and showed the trademark unobtrusive Alpina rear spoiler and a set of multi-spoke wheels that looked very much the same as those 21-inch ones found on the current Alpina B7.

The new Alpina B7 is based on the F01 designated 2009 BMW 7-Series and features a supercharged V8 engine, most probably the 4.4-litre found in a 750i. There is no word on official performance numbers but its predecessor the 2007 B7 got 500hp (373kW) and 700Nm from its supercharged 4.4-litre V8. The 0 - 60mph time was 4.8 seconds.

Damn you beat me to it. Looks really good from the front. Those rear tail lights still have some getting used to.

The picture was probably taken in Munich, which is pretty much BMW town. Every car in that city is pretty much a BMW.

I was sweating while i was posting it wondering if you'd beat me then i'd get flamed for double posting lol.:D

For some reason i find the rear of the B7 really appealing.:confused:

^Good call, same here. Pretty nice car. I think it would've had more of my attention if the windows were tinted.

Doesn't it make more sense to tune the TT v8? or is this going to be some sort of tricked out twin s/c'd V8 with the superchargers mounted on the side to the intake manifold?

IMO rims look cheap/grills are a little too big and that is a nasty gap from the front bumper to the hood.

Looks like an oversized Honda. They could have done better.
