The xDrive system provides a continuous and variable distribution of torque between the front and rear axle. Along with the 4.4-litre twin turbo V8 that provides 500hp and 516 lbs-ft of torque, it provides an ideal combination to create a perfect all-season luxury sport sedan.

The 2011 B7 is the second generation of Alpina automobiles based on the BMW 7-Series to be offered in the US. The first BMW Alpina B7 was offered as a limited edition for the 2007 and 2008 model years.
