2012 BMW Alpina B7 LWB
In the history of the BMW marque, there is no more venerated, more legendary, more mythic nomenclature than “Alpina.” For more than 50 years now, the tuning House of Alpina has crafted--with BMW's approval and cooperation--rare and remarkable versions of more widely available BMW models. Alpina automobiles have always been distinguished by performance upgrades and options not available on lesser BMWs. The 2012 B7 (long-wheelbase) offered here in black sapphire metallic paint over exclusive black Nappa leather, is a perfect example of the Alpina ethic: remarkable performance and truly exclusive style.
When new, the car's naturally aspirated 4.4-liter V8 engine delivered 500 horsepower at 5,000 rpm, and 516 pound-feet of torque at 3000 rpm, through a 6-speed automatic transmission. ABS and traction-control were standard. Other standard features included separately controlled front and rear air-conditioning, 21-inch Alpina-brand silver-aluminum wheels, navigation system, parking assist, Sirius satellite radio, heated outside mirrors, remote keyless entry and more.
The options list (shown in the photo gallery) for this car is the longest such document we've ever seen for a BMW. It shows, among many other options: soft-close-automatic doors, glass sunroof, climate-controlled seats front and rear, fine-grain ash wood inlays, leather-covered instrument panel with ceramic appliques on the controls, rear-compartment entertainment system, Alcantara headliner, and, of course, the “Alpina package.”
This B7 has accumulated just under 62,000 documented miles from only two private owners. Its service- history shows regular maintenance at appropriate intervals, and is complete and up-to-date. The car's only CarFax issue occurred less than six months after delivery, and involved front-end damage (without airbag deployment) when the car struck an object. Repairs were promptly completed by Sterling BMW in Laguna Beach, California.
The next owner of this automobile will enjoy a state-of-the-art, über-luxury, autobahn-cruising executive sedan in stunning condition. The added élan and exclusivity of its tasteful Alpina branding will speak with authority to every BMW lover. It's hard to imagine this B7 will ever go out of style.
