Up for auction is this 2008 BMW Alpina B7 finished in Alpine White over a Cream Beige Nasca leather interior. Produced on the BMW assembly line in a collaborative effort with Alpina, the B7 was offered as a limited production, high-performance, and ultra-luxurious version of the E65 7-Series sedan. Representing one out of a reported 800 examples produced for North America, this 2008 B7 is equipped with a hand-built supercharged V8 engine mated to a 6-speed Shift-Tronic automatic transmission. It was purchased new in March of 2008 from BMW of North Scottsdale at an original sticker price of over $117k, with options including soft-close automatic doors, power rear sunshades, heated and cooled front seats, and a premium Harman Kardon sound system. Remaining under the care of its original owner, this B7 shows approximately 82k miles on the odometer and is now being offered for auction out of Colorado.
This Alpina B7 is finished in Alpine White (300) with high-gloss black Shadowline trim. The B7 can be distinguished from a standard 7-Series by its unique front and rear fascias, trunk lid spoiler, specialized badging, and 21” Alpina Classic wheels. These BBS-manufactured wheels sport a custom chrome finish and were dressed in a set of Michelin Pilot Sport tires in 2017. The car has been garage-kept from new with clear paint protection film applied to the front bumper and leading edge of the hood. The seller reports a small scuff on the passenger-side quarter panel near the fuel door as well as some minor road-going wear to the hood and front bumper, additional images are provided in the photo gallery along with a clean CARFAX report.
Inside, you will find a luxurious Cream Beige Nasca leather interior with an Alcantara headliner and Dark Ashwood veneers lining the dashboard, door panels, and center console. Amenities include 16-way power-adjustable heated and cooled front seats, active driver-seat bolsters, heated rear seats, a power glass roof, automatic soft-close doors, power rear sunshades, automatic climate control, BMW iDrive navigation, and a Harman Kardon Logic 7 13-speaker sound system. Special details from Alpina include a leather-wrapped multi-function steering wheel with deviated stitching and thumb shifter buttons, a blue-faced Alpina-branded gauge cluster with red needles, stainless steel B7-logo door sills, and a limited production plaque located above the overhead console. Some signs of wear are present on the driver's seat.
The B7 is powered by a hand-built version of BMW’s N62 4.4L V8 designated as 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 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. The B7 was also equipped with a sport-tuned Alpina suspension with Active Roll Stabilization, speed-sensitive power steering, larger brakes from the 760i, and a bespoke Akropovic titanium exhaust system. Noteworthy service items include replacements of the supercharger and radiator reserve tank in 2018, completion of a door latch recall in 2019, and replacement of the thermostat in October of 2021. Routine oil changes have been carried out and corresponding service records will accompany the sale.
This sale will include the original window sticker, owner's manuals, service records, and a clean title. This rare one-owner Alpina B7 presents a great opportunity to get behind the wheel of a highly-exclusive and ultra-luxurious sports sedan.
