BMW ALPINA B7 - Press and Dealer Launch in California

http://www.alpina-automobiles.com/en/alpina-downloads/gallery-de/news-gallery/b7-launch-in-california.html

BMW ALPINA B7 - Press and Dealer Launch in California

The new BMW ALPINA B7 was presented to selected members of the American press and the BMW dealer family, at an exclusive event held from the 5th to the 11th of June in California. Participants were able to sample the ALPINA flagship's comfort and sport orientation at both Infineon Raceway and while driving through California's scenery, including the renowned Highway One. Presentations were made regarding the B7's technical subtleties, deep insights were given into ALPINA's unique and storied history, and the distinctive philosophy of this small family-run business from Buchloe was explored. All this was framed by the American event agency Emotive using ALPINA's second business venture as the backdrop: wine. The very finest wines from California's best winemakers were served with dinner at the private The Napa Valley Reserve, each wine and each bottle naturally introduced and elucidated by the vintners themselves, supported by ALPINA's head of wine.

All in all a very successful event: the finest example of the ALPINA lifestyle, coupled with a vehicle created for the most demanding of automotive connoisseurs.

Hi Booster,

is the black one a LWB or SWB version ?
and how about this blue one, is it LWB or SWB version ?

can you please post the picture of them here ?
If you have LWB and SWB pictures please post them both, so I can make comparison which one looks better.

Thanks

Beautiful car! Booster, I sat in the blue one a couple weeks ago...loved it!

I believe the blue one is a SWB.

Booster,

one quick question, on the second pictures,
there is a Black 7 Series in the background.
Is that Black one a Long Wheel Base ?

I am trying to make comparison between SWB and LWB,
on which one looks better specifically for Alpina B7.

Thanks

Hey there - sadly, we weren't invited to this event, but I believe that the review we just published on this car is the first full review (having lived with the car for a week) in the US.

More info in this thread - I hope you enjoy the review.
