Facelifted Alpina B7 Goes Round The Nurburgring, Attacks The Curves Like A Champ

The BMW 7-Series is in for a makeover, so naturally, the Alpina B7 is being updated as well.

Prototypes of the car have only recently started being scooped, and they wear camouflage front and rear, making it hard to spot some of the design changes.

Nevertheless, that massive grille is very visible, as are the reworked front and rear bumpers and hood. Elsewhere, expect the 2020 Alpina B7 to benefit from restyled headlights and taillights, and to ride on the tuner’s signature multi-spoke alloy wheels.

Inside, things will look similar to the facelifted BMW 7-Series, with new features such as the infotainment system, digital instrument cluster and steering wheel. Differentiating it from the regular versions of the flagship saloon will be a host of different trims and, of course, the Alpina badging.

The twin-turbo 4.4-liter V8 will likely be carried over, but it’s unknown whether it will deliver more power. The current B7 comes with 600 PS (691 hp / 440 kW) and 880 Nm (590 lb-ft) of torque, hits 100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.7 seconds and tops out at 310 km/h (193 mph), so it’s not that it’s lacking in that department.

Alpina is believed to officially unveil the updated B7 next year, after the revamped 7-Series’ premiere at the Geneva Auto Show.

    I always wonder why BMW bothers to camo upcoming models. It takes a microscope & calipers to detect the changes.
