BMW’s 205-MPH Alpina B7 Is Now the Fastest in Its Series


That, according to Alpina, should result in livelier throttle response and even swifter acceleration. The tuner now claims zero-to-60 mph sprinting in just 3.5 seconds, while aero improvements see top speed rising to 205 mph, up from 194 mph.
As before, the B7 rides on Alpina’s trademark thin-spoke 20-inch Classic rims, though the tuner is also offering new, high-strength, ultra-light 21s that cut the weight of each wheel by 20 percent.
In an interesting twist for the 2020 B7, Alpina is focusing more on refinement than in the past. To hush noise levels, especially in the back seats, sound shields have been installed in the rear wheel arches. There’s also thicker laminated glass fitted not only for the windshield, but also for the side and rear windows.
