And as a Bonus, the Alpina C7 spy shot:




Rumors are it uses a 6 litre Biturbo V12 with ~550hp and 850Nm, which should theoretically allow a 0-100km/h time of 4.5s. Adding to this is a strict weight saving diet.


The Alpina C7 will use the 750i's 4,4l V8 Biturbo and put out ~500hp

Nice, they went back to the E31 square exhaust look as well.
Those horrible eyelids and overly large kidneys still ruin the design however.

And it won't look at all that good in real life. Saw one yesterday and it was very.....meh. Better than the last one, but stll falls waaaaay short of the grace and elegance of the E38. This new model looks much better in photos than it does on the streets when you actually see one.

Could it possibly be a M-division M7? Or are they already designated as 760i and Alpina C7?

E38 Alpina B12 6.0 is definitely superb!

It is probably very biased since I own an E38 Alpina B12 6.0 myself, but I agree wholehearted that the E38 is the best 7 series so far BMW/Alpina have ever manufactured.

Best Regards!

I absolutely despise the size of that grill. In my opinion, it doesn't suit the front. A smaller one should have been used.

It's a big improvement, even if the front still needs work. Love the black with black alloys though, looks badass.

I love how they black out the emblem. Because, you know, no one will recognize it now that the logo's covered. :lol:

Honestly: 80% of the average population won't recognize it. Maybe in Munich people will recognize it, but put it somewhere in like France and they will be all confused.

There has to be some way to make and or order a hood with smaller double kidneys, I hope the sane aftermarket people will come up with something.

Seeing that the kidneys are actually a part of the front bumper, ordering a new hood will hardly solve the problem :p

interior looks like x3's interior, wich isn't good for 2 reasons, 1 it looks small for a car this size and 2 it looks down market rather than up market

I had high hopes when I heard BMW was remodeling the 7 Series, but this is a disappointment. Im not really liking the new design, but I might end up growing into it. Im sure the Chinese will love this car, which was BMW's target audience now.
