BMW ALPINA B7 Bi-Turbo LWB (Video)

At the 41st Tokyo Motor Show, ALPINA and NICOLE Automobiles will have their own exhibit. The first car, a BMW ALPINA B7 Turbo, is a model that was delivered to Japan back in 1979 and is still being driven these days. The new ALPINA flagship, the long-wheelbase version of the BMW ALPINA B7 Bi-Turbo will be officially shown to the public for the very first time. Apparently, the carmaker already delivered 330 units of the 7-series to Japan. The other model that will be presented at the stand is the BMW ALPINA D3 Bi-Turbo. This is the first clean performance diesel that is available in the Japanese market. This are the two reasons ALPINA will be present at the Tokyo Motor Show.

This will be the 20th Tokyo Motor Show that ALPINA, in partnership with its Japanese importer of over three decades, NICOLE Automobiles, has partaken in with its own exhibition stand.

The first car that was delivered to Japan in 1979, a BMW ALPINA B7 Turbo, is still being driven to this day. Chance has it that the 3000th car bound for Tokyo left the factory gates this year, after precisely 30 years.

Furthermore, the new ALPINA flagship, the BMW ALPINA B7 Bi-Turbo long-wheelbase, will be officially shown to the public for the very first time. This is were it the numbers get even more curious because it turns out ALPINA has altogether delivered 330 7 Series to Japan.

Also shown will be the BMW ALPINA D3 Bi-Turbo, in itself quite remarkable because it is the first clean performance diesel that is available in the Japanese market, a market in which diesel engines could, up to now, only be found in trucks.

Enough reasons hence for ALPINA to again be present at the Tokyo Motor Show,

especially considering that the turn out of other European manufacturers is very thin indeed " with Lotus being the only other one.
