Alpina B7

Alpina B7

  The high end BMW tuning specialist Alpina are well known for adding tasteful amounts of style, luxury, and performance to the German automaker’s lineup. The Alpina B7 is based upon the BMW 7 Series and fills in the gap of the missing M7. Instead of going with a nose heavy V12, Alpina chose to work with BMW’s 4.4 Liter V8 and boosted it to 500 HP and 506 lb-ft of torque. This is good to propel the $125,000 2.5 ton luxury limousine from 0 to 60 MPH in 4.9 seconds and reach a top speed of 182 MPH. The suspension has been reworked to give the car a perfect 50:50 weight distribution and is finished off by a set of 21 inch Alpina Classic Wheels. Being the luxury vehicle that it is, the Alpina B7 is also equipped with the finest leather and interior appointments available.

What happens when you pit a Dodge Challenger SRT8 against a big and heavy luxury limousine? Any rational person would bet heavily on the lighter Challenger, but there is on small exception about the nearly 4,700-pound competitor... it happens to be the Alpine B7 with a snarling V-8 under its hood. Now, that seems like a fair challenge, but that weight difference is a tough one to overcome.

So, here we have two V-8-powered cars; one is a coupe that is built to go fast and the other is a comfortable saloon that also has a little muscle behind it. The Challenger ’s 6.4-liter V-8 puts out a very respectable 470 horsepower, but the 4.4-liter, twin-turbocharged V8 under the BMW Alpina B7 ’s hood makes 540 German-engineered horsepower. Now things are looking a little better matched...

So, who wins: raw American muscle or the nearly 550-horsepower luxury rig that is at a 500-pound disadvantage? Watch the above video to find out.
