BMW Alpina B7 SWB xDrive

Price: $127,175

Based on BMW's 7 Series, the Alpina B7 is the sporty version of BMW's flagship sedan. Alpina is to BMW what AMG is to Mercedes-Benz. Available in standard or long wheelbase, and in rear-wheel-drive or all-wheel-drive, the Alpina B7 provides an extra degree of performance for those sufficiently well-heeled drivers requiring an extra dose of excitement.

The 500-horsepower, twin-turbocharged, 4.4-liter, all-aluminum V-8 catapults the Alpina B7 to 60 miles per hour in under five seconds. Keeping the driver involved, the manual-shift mode on the six-speed automatic transmission is operated through steering wheel-mounted shift buttons.

Alpina-specific interior touches include Myrtle burl wood accents, Alpina logos on the seat backs, illuminated door sills and a black-panel LCD instrument cluster. Suffering through winter has never felt so good, and the all-wheel-drive certainly increases your chances of getting you where you are going.
