Watch an F01 Alpina B7 beat down a Dodge Challenger SRT8 392 (6.4 liter) in the 1/4 mile
BMW does not make an M version of the 7-Series (although one may be coming
). The closest thing is the F01 Alpina B7 which features an N63 V8 like the F01 750i although with upgraded turbochargers for a total of 540 horsepower. Alpina shares a close relationship with BMW and fills niche spots in the BMW lineup with models such as the B7. How quick is it? Well check out the B7 decisively beating a Dodge Challenger SRT8 with a 6.4 liter Hemi V8 in the video below.
The Challenger has the larger motor by 2 liters but it is naturally aspirated with 470 horsepower. It weighs 4160 pounds which is much lighter than the 4700 pounds of the B7.
What is interesting to note is this B7 does much better in this video on the drag strip than the numbers MotorTrend recorded in the 1/4 mile which were 12.6 @ 113.6
. Regardless, the B7 does very well decisively beating the Challenger SRT8 and whetting appetites everywhere for what an M7 could potentially do.
