cutting edge dynamics cutting edge dynamics the new bmw alpina b7 bi-turbo features cutting- edge suspension technology, offering its driver an exceptional range of driving experiences. with the driving dynamics control used to select the appropriate mode, the 2-axle air suspension system is primarily responsible for the exceptional level of ride comfort in the new bmw alpina b7 bi-turbo. it also enables ride height to be changed up or down which in combination with the other suspension systems facilitates the choice of a decidedly comfort or sport orientated chassis set-up. the settings of the electronic damper control, which influences both rebound and compression, are also selected 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. for the first time, the new bmw alpina b7 bi-turbo features integral active steering, which in conjunction with the high-performance drivetrain and the all-wheel drive system, offers a dynamic driving experience par excellence. the integral active steering combines a variable ratio electric steering system at the front axle with active steering on the rear axle whereby the wheels can turn a maximum of 3 degrees. the all-wheel drive system exploits the technical potential of bmw’s xdrive system and its intelligent and dynamic distribution of drive power which continuously and fully variable distributes torque between the front and rear axle within milliseconds for maximum traction and control. the programming of the torque distribution control, which is interconnected with the dynamic stability control and the engine management system, is performance-oriented and it increases driving agility and dynamics markedly – especially under lateral acceleration – while maintaining balanced and neutral handling.
the all-wheel drive system besides allowing optimum traction under acceleration by eliminating slip induced losses, the system continuously monitors a wide range of sensory inputs – for example steering angle, lateral acceleration, yaw angle and speed – to distribute torque so as to achieve maximum safety in challenging conditions or when encountering sudden changes in road surface friction.1 further refined and adapted to the performance characteristics of the high-torque v8 bi-turbo in collaboration with zf, the transmission offers exceptional driving comfort in all situations. in automatic mode the combination of eight gears and high engine torque makes for relaxed, luxurious cruising at low engine rpm even when travelling at speed. in sport mode the shift points are optimized for improved driving performance and gear changes are considerably more dynamic. for maximum dynamic performance, the driver selects the manual mode thereby actuating gear changes manually by using the switch-tronic buttons on the back of the steering wheel. in addition to extremely fast shift times close to a tenth of a second, this mode also supresses forced upshifts in the engine speed limit range. ¹ left-hand drive only with all-wheel drive (long-wheelbase) available, right-hand drive only with rear-wheel drive (long-wheelbase) available.
highlight in led-technology highlight in led-technology an absolute highlight is the full-colour digital instrument panel in led technology featuring an exclusive alpina design. in comfort mode it offers a classic look featuring round instruments with blue background and red needles. in sport mode the display changes to a more dynamic design with blue and green drag indicators and a focus on primary information, such as the centrally positioned permanent digital speed read-out.
