Click above for a high-res image of the 2009 BMW Alpina B7 Bi-Turbo

The 2009 BMW Alpina B7 Bi-Turbo will join the B6 GT3 race car on the stand in Geneva, and thanks to AutoZeitung, we've got a singular photo and some preliminary specs on the uber-sedan from Alpina.

The B7 Bi-Turbo is essentially the M7 BMW forgot to build, packing a twin-turbocharged, 4.4-liter V8 putting out 507 hp and 516 lb-ft of torque. Alpina claims the B7 can run to 60 in 4.7 seconds and on to an electronically-limited 173 mph. We'll have more details from the Geneva Motor Show next week, but expect a host of upgrades to join the engine mods, including uprated brakes, suspension components and a reworked interior to compliment the B7's new body kit.

      Fast and ugly go hand in hand for this car.


      It's a good thing it's fast because no will get to see the ugly whale that just blasted past....

      Now that is a proper high performance limousine. I was a little skeptical of the new 7 series look, and have never really liked the Alpina version of last gen, but this is looks spectacular, both in performance and looks.

      WOW!
      I'm not a BMW fan, but....don't tease me.

      It's unsettling in the aesthetics dept--more of an A8 fan.

      The HP output is disappointing? I don't know, their supercharged motor found on the B6S and B5S have almost exactly the same horsepower for the same displacement.

      Yeah and how much does it cost????? Overpriced and overhyped. I'll take three Charger SRT8's (very rare). They have virtually the same performance numbers, have a great deal of Benz under them and are damn mean looking themselves.

      How about a B3 or B5 to go along with this?

      The stock version is an absolute eye-sore, but kudos to the Alpina team for the extreme makeover.
