2020 BMW Alpina B7 Facelift Spotted With Texas-Sized Grille And Sportier Front Bumper

BMW is putting the finishing touches on the facelifted 7-Series and spy photographers have now snapped pictures of the upcoming Alpina B7.

Caught sporting a massive grille, the updated model has a more aggressive appearance as it adopts a sportier front bumper with a V-shaped lower air intake. It is flanked by new vents which appear to direct air away from the vehicle.

Further below, we can see a revised spoiler which will likely have familiar Alpina badging. Other notable updates include restyled headlights and a new hood.

The profile of the car largely carries over, but the side skirts may have been updated. That remains unclear at the moment, but there’s no denying this is an Alpina variant thanks to its iconic wheels which are backed up by blue calipers.

The rear end is heavily camouflaged and there doesn’t appear to be any major changes. However, we can expect updated taillights and a modified bumper.

Like the standard 7-Series, the Alpina B7 will receive an updated interior that features a new digital instrument cluster and an infotainment system running BMW Operating System 7.0. The latter has a cleaner layout, more intuitive operation and more customization options.

The rest of the cabin should largely carryover, but previous spy photos have shown facelifted 7-Series will have a new steering wheel. We can also expect the usual Alpina upgrades including special badging and premium leather upholstery.

There’s no word on performance changes, but the current Alpina B7 xDrive has a twin-turbo 4.4-liter V8 engine that produces 591 hp (440 kW / 600 PS) and 590 lb-ft (800 Nm) of torque. It is connected to an eight-speed automatic transmission and an all-wheel drive system which enables the luxury sedan to accelerate from 0-60 mph (0-96 km/h) in 3.6 seconds before hitting a top speed of up to 192 mph (309 km/h).

The 2020 BMW 7-Series is expected to debut at the Geneva Motor Show next year, so expect the Alpina variant to follow shortly thereafter.
