You Can Have A Low-Mileage, 500 HP Alpina B7 For Close To $20k

BMW came out with their fourth-generation E65 7-Series luxury saloon all the way back in 2001. People however weren’t exactly enamored with its so-called “Bangle Butt”, named after the automaker’s design boss Chris Bangle.

Even so, the E65 was a pretty revolutionary model for BMW at the time. It was their first ever car to feature the iDrive infotainment system</a and also premiered active anti-roll bars, an electronic smart key and a night vision system, among others.

It wasn’t long until Alpina got a hold of Bavaria’s newest luxury car and, in 2004, the tuner came out with the new B7, powered by a supercharged 4.4-liter V8. Exterior mods included a rear spoiler, new bumpers, new 21″ wheels, sports seats, custom instrument cluster and in the case of this Alpine White 2008 model, tinted windows too.

Excellent comfort, high performance

Inside, this car comes with black Nasca leather, Dark Ash wood accents on the doors, dashboard and center console, plus the following features: Comfort Access, automatic soft-close doors, power rear sunshades, auto-dimming mirrors, heated and ventilated 16-wa power front seats, heated rear seats, parking sensors, adaptive light control, sat-nav, a Logic7 sound system, 6-disc CD changer and more.

According to its Bring a Trailer ad, the car only has 18,354 miles (29,538 km) on the clock, which is quite respectable for a 10-year old luxury limo itching to go fast.

Just how fast you ask? When new, Alpina B7 models such as this one would put down 500 HP and 700 Nm (520 lb-ft) of torque, and could accelerate from zero to 60 mph (96 km/h) in just 4.8 seconds, before maxing out at 187 mph (300 km/h).

With two days left until the auction ends, the highest bid sits at $18,750, so if you’re interested, we think something around $20k should secure this super sedan.

    Doubtful it will stay under 20k. And if it does the inevitable maintenance costs will end up burning a hole in your wallet.

    • europeon

      You can get them for half of that in Europe – higher mileage though 50-60k miles. 760li go even lower, and 750li cost less than a decent bicycle.

    18,354 miles, i highly doubt thats true mileage

    • Matt

      Why do you doubt it? There’s virtually no wear in the interior (driver’s seat etc) and underbody is immaculate.

  • S CAT

    So many of these few year old European overpriced luxury rides depreciate out their ass upon warranty’s end due too… ridiculous maintenance & repair costs. Who the F wants these $$$$ pits?????

    • Matt

      It’s a lot of car for the money if you can budget for maintenance and/or take a risk on everything being ok.

  • Honda NSX-R

    Idk why, but I’d buy it. Saying no to an Alpina seems tough for me. And hey, if it already took a large bite in depreciation, why not? I would make sure I would have enough to pay for the maintenance though, the $20,000 price tag is a lie. The real cost of this car comes with the maintenance costs.

  • BANGLES DESIGNS ARE STARTING TO LOOK GOOD COMPARED TO WHAT BMW IS DOING NOW.

  • Tempting, but the maintenance would be hell, I think it has some bespoke Alpina parts that wouldn’t be easy to come by.

    But always love Alpina, they have that elegance and pace.
