BMW announced its 2013 Alpina B7 model recently, boasting a 4.4-liter, twin-turbo V8 with 540-hp and 538 lb-ft of torque. What they neglected to mention with the official announcements was the cars pricing, which has now been revealed to start at $128,495.
Of course the Alpina B7 is basically the closest thing to an M7 model we can ever experience, for now at least. The powerplant is mated to an eight-speed transmission, while it rolls on 21-inch wheels and can obtain a top speed of 194 mph. While the standard model starts at $128,495, those that wish to get the long-wheelbase xDrive variant will have to shell out at least $135,395. Both prices include a $895 shipping charge.
The 2013 BMW Alpina B7 will make its official US debut at this year’s Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance next month.
