BMW bringing Alpina B7 xDrive all-wheel drive models to New York

Even though it revealed the US-spec Alpina B7 luxury limousine at the Chicago Auto Show last month, BMW isn’t slowing down, and has just revealed that the B7 will be making an appearance at the upcoming New York Auto Show.

Don’t go thinking it will just be driven from Chicago to NY, as the company will add the xDrive system to the Alpina B7 lineup of models. And for the more naive BMW 1 Series owners, xDrive does mean all-wheel drive, instead of the regular rear-wheel drive setup of the already announced B7 models.

As the regular ones, it will be available in both standard and long wheelbase formats. Power will arrive from the same 4.4-liter V8 engine, developing over 500 HP under the hood of the exclusive limousine. Expect more details when the New York show opens at the end of the month.
