BMW Alpina B7 Caught Completely Undisguised

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.
