Details of the B7 LCI have been announced - https://www.pistonheads.com/news/ph-germancars/608hp-alpina-b7-gains-xdrive-with-facelift/39608

Looks to be xdrive only and LWB now. I think I prefer the LCI looks compared to previous.

The Photos for convenience




and interestingly the new Power and Torque graphs



On the face of it no change to the overall figures - but the curves tweaked - especially low down ... and not especially curves !

Agreed, but the rest of it looks fantastic.

If I'm perfectly honest, I love the new grille.

I feel that the 7 series, being the most luxurious of the line up, should have a distinctive, strong design to it. I feel that the front end of the LCI now makes it properly look like the flagship, rather than just a bigger 5 series.

And of course, ALPINA's treatment of it makes it look absolutely fantastic!

Dear Lord! You just need to waft your right foot near the accelerator and there's 590lbft of torque immediately available Shocked

The long range autobahn cruisers will love that Very Happy
