Autoweek report that the ALPINA B7 is going state side


Given Alpina has annual capacity for around 1000 cars, probably only 100 or so B7s at the max will make it to the United States in the first full year. If those are devoured as we imagine, the next decision will be how to expand Alpina’s capacity to satisfy North America’s hunger for these notorious Blues.
