  • Introduction

    The B7 Turbo was introduced in December 1978 and it was the first 6-series car with full Alpina conversion. Initially is was referred to as the 630 Turbo however quite soon Alpina changed the name to B7 Turbo.

    When BMW introduced the updated E24 series (E24/1) in 1982, Alpina also updated the B7 Turbo Coupe and renamed it to B7 Turbo Coupé/1.


    The engine is the same 3,0 litre turbocharged six as the B7 Turbo saloon. The engine is based on the 3.0 liter BMW engine and has been carefully rebuilt using lower-compression Mahle pistons and a new fuel injection system. The B7 has variable boost control which regulated the turbocharger between 0,6 bars to 0,90 bars of boost, corresponding to between 250-300 bhp. Read more about the engine in the E12 B7 Turbo section.


    The B7 Turbo Coupé has Bilstein gas-pressure spring units and progressive springs at front and gas-pressure dampers and height-adjustable, progressive springs at rear.

    The brakes are uprated with ventilated discs all around.

    The wheels are 16″ with 205/55 tires front and 225/50 rear.


    The interior changes include a hand-stitched steering-wheel, a new gearknob, new instruments and sport-seats in Alpina upholstery.

    The exterior changes are a deeper front spoiler, a rear spoiler, the Alpina alloys and the optional Alpina stripes.


    Depending on the modelyear, Alpina claimed 0-100 km/h times of 5,9-6,7 seconds and top speeds of 250-265 km/h.


    Over a ten year period, between December 1978 and 1981, a total of 183 cars were made.
