Java Green Alpina B7 Isn’t For The Faint-Hearted

Few performance cars are as understated as the Alpina B7 Bi-Turbo. Well, except for this one.

Recently delivered by BMW Abu Dhabi Motors, this B7 is painted in the same Java Green color we saw on a modified M3 just a few days ago. On the M3, the color scheme worked surprisingly well. The same can’t be said about the Alpina.

Cars as luxurious as the B7 are usually best paired with subtle colors and shades, such as dark blue, black, silver, white or perhaps even dark red. Frankly, Java Green makes it look like a crazed owner had the car ‘improved’ (ruined) by taking it to a tuner and having it wrapped to look like Kermit the Frog. No. Just no.

Fortunately, the B7 is so fast from point A to point B that the owner of this car wouldn’t have to deal with constant stares on the road.

    I actually disagree. That M3 was riced out, and the color really was just too much. The 7-Series isn’t a particularly attractive or exciting car to begin with, this actually adds a little bit of excitement to set the Alpina apart. I would tint the windows, and go with dark gray or black wheels though. That orange wood trim does not go well with the green at all.

    Hate the green and Hate that wood color as well, will look better in darker green and black wood trim.

    Color worked on the m3 ,but not this b7….
