Now available for auction is this 2007 BMW Alpina B7 finished in Black Sapphire Metallic over a black leather interior. Based on BMW’s E65 7-series, the B7 is a high-performance ultra-luxury sedan modified and tuned by longtime BMW partner Alpina. The B7 was built alongside other 7-series models by BMW before being fitted with a hand-built supercharged V8 engine and shipped back to Alpina’s facility for their finishing touches. At an original sticker price of over $124k, this B7 is one of approximately 800 examples imported to the U.S. and showcases the optional Rear Seat Entertainment Package, Night Vision, and Adaptive Light Control. Highlighting a consistent history of service on CARFAX and with just over 77k-miles showing on the odometer, this B7 is now being offered for auction by its seller out of Florida.
This B7 is finished in Black Sapphire Metallic with Shadowline trim. The front end is said to have received some touch-ups to address small rock chips and the seller notes some areas of paint fade on the decklid, hood, and roof. Additional images are provided in the photo gallery. Alpina fitted the B7 with a unique front bumper and lower chin spoiler as well as revised side skirts, a redesigned rear bumper, and a rear decklid spoiler. The iconic 21” multi-spoke Alpina wheels are said to have been dressed in new Michelin Pilot Sport Cup tires within the last 2k-miles.
The cabin is appointed with black leather and Dark Ash wood trim. Some wear is noted on the driver’s seat bolster and the 6-disc CD changer is currently nonfunctional. Alpina-specific interior details Sport Seats, Alpina-logo blue instrument gauges with red needles, a hand-stitched steering wheel, "B7" logo door sills, and a special Alpina production plaque. Factory options equipped for this example include:
Under the hood lies Alpina’s hand-built version of BMW’s N62 4.4L V8 called the Alpina H1. It features an Alpina-specific engine block including high-performance Mahle pistons and a forged crankshaft, with lower compression to suit the centrifugal mounted supercharger. These modifications allow the B7 to produce up to 500 HP and 515 lb.-ft of torque, achieving a 0-60 time of approximately 4.4 seconds. Power is delivered to the rear wheels from a 6-speed ZF automatic Switch-Tronic transmission which allows the driver to shift gears using the steering wheel-mounted buttons. Some maintenance records will accompany the sale and CARFAX shows a consistent history of maintenance with the last reported service to have been carried out by Tom Bush BMW in 2020 at 77,240 miles. A check engine light is currently illuminated and is reported to be the result of an O2 sensor error code.
Included in the sale are a set of two master keys, one spare key, the original owner’s manual and documentation, the original window sticker, a full-size spare, tools, a first aid kit, and a clean title. Offering unprecedented luxury and performance, this Alpina B7 is sure to satisfy any discerning driver.
