Chassis & Suspension
The new BMW ALPINA B7 Bi-Turbo features the most advanced suspension technology, offering owners an exceptional range of driving experiences.
The central objective during suspension development was to retain the unparalleled long-distance cruising comfort of the predecessor while at the same time significantly sharpening the agility, handling and lateral dynamics commensurate to the power output of the new BMW ALPINA B7 Bi-Turbo.
The 2-axle air suspension system combined with Dynamic Damper Control and Active Comfort Drive with Road Preview guarantees the very highest level of driving comfort at all times while the Active Roll Stabilization minimises body roll during cornering. The rear wheel steering of the Integral Active Steering system gives the new BMW ALPINA B7 Bi-Turbo a level of dynamic performance and agility not previously associated with performance luxury sedans. The Driving Dynamics Control button serves as the central control with which to select the various parameters that influence the driving dynamics of the new BMW ALPINA B7 Bi-Turbo. It also features an Individual Mode, which can be used to combine specific settings independently of each other according to the driver’s preference.
The settings of the Electronic Damper Control, which controls both rebound and compression, are selected also using the Driving Dynamics Control. A broad range of ALPINA damper set-ups are available ranging from Comfort+ Mode for effortless and relaxed cruising to ALPINA Sport+ Mode for maximum dynamic performance.
ALPINA Sport+ Mode
At the touch of a single buttong, the ALPINA Sport+ Mode adapts the full range of drivetrain, chassis and suspension settings for maximum sportiness, lowering the ride height by 20 mm for outstanding dynamic performance and driving stability in the process.
