I was up at Mt. Evans, which for those who don't know is the highest paved road in North America, and spotted this





And one gratuitous shot of my car too...

I'd love to know if and when BMW North America and/or BMW Canada are planning to import them.

Best regards.

Notice how this is a US spec car...

The orange reflectors are a dead giveaway.

At the very least this means BMW NA is considering importing this car...

The B7 is definitely a pretty imposing beast of a car. Looks amazing in person, just wish I had better pictures. Definitely US spec, I noticed that too after looking at the pics. Plus if you look at the depression for the license plate on the trunk, a euro plate would not fit in there.

And thanks for the kind words on my car, gotta admit, I love it.

BMW NA is definitely going to provide the US and Canada with the Alpina B7. Especially where you live, there is definitely a market for the B7. I have driven up to Toronto for meetings and I have seen various B7s driven around. The US spec B7s could be seen driven around cities/country roads for further testing. They could be spotted during at night and int he day time if you pay attention closely. Some executives will be able to test drive the B7 around fall and winter. Sales would start end of 2009 or early 2010.

Unlike Mercedes-Benz, BMW have different customers than those buying S-class AMGs. BMW believes the M division has already created the ultimate sedan with the M5, the M7 would not change that. Alpina is generally seen as the official tuner for BMW, think of the B7 as the M7. Creating better aerodynamics and tuning the engine a bit, it's sort of what the M division does. BMW has also considered using Alpina's turbo which will be in future models. In general, BMW wants to keep the 7 series' status and an M7 would defy the whole point of BMW's flagship.
