It's a luxury limousine but it's got the power to rival some of the hottest supercars. A NEW supersaloon has hit the UK – and it’s the fastest four-door production car in the world. The Alpina B7 has a top speed of 205mph and that’s enough to worry supercars from Ferrari, Lamborghini and McLaren.

It’ll race from 0-62mph in just four seconds so not much will beat you away from the lights. What makes these stats even more startling is the luxury on board the B7, which starts from £115,000.

There’s ambient lighting, massaging seats and a decadent luxury leather-lined interior. The B7 is a tricked up version of the regular BMW 7 Series carried out by experts at Alpina – a tuning arm that’s had links with BMW dating back to the 60s.

The eye-watering performance figures are up from what was even predicted when the car was first unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show. Engineers have turned the screws on the huge 4.4-litre V8 engine to produce 608bhp.

There are new pistons, intercoolers, radiators and an improved gearbox to cope with all the power. Gary Lott, Alpina brand manager, said: “Not long ago, only the most focussed million-pound hypercars could touch 200 mph. “Where road conditions allow, owners of the new B7 Bi-Turbo can cruise long distances at that legendary speed. with friends and family in considerable comfort.

“Remarkably, Alpina has achieved this alongside superb ride quality and refinement at lower speeds, and all for just £115,000.”Limited numbers of the Alpina B7 will be sold in the UK – and only available in rear-wheel drive long-wheelbase form.

Orders are open now.
