Thanks. The car, as reported by many other B7 owners, is a perfect blend of performance and luxury. I still can not believe what Alpina has done to the suspension - great handling + great ride. Amazing!heh it really needs tribute to the plates... great car by the way.
Is it titanium grey or sterling grey? Looks like it could be the latter to me.Thanks, Kees. I think that the titanium gray is superb on the car and I do believe it to be fairly rare. Black seems to be the most common body color on this side of the pond with a few whites and Alpina blues thrown in.
I read in a post previously that production had been stopped at about 800 units. Do you have any specific knowledge on the production run total?
Thanks alot Wundercar and just to put things right officially, the plate under the hood reads "TITANGRAU II METALLIC". I don't think a translation is required. It is not sterling gray.Hey Guys -
As stated in my post on the "end of production" blog, I spoke via E-mail with my contact at Alpina in Buchloe this week who stated that the final '08 B7 units are currently in production. When completed and shipped, the total number of B7s sent to North America will be exactly 800 for the '07 and '08 model years combined.
This sounds like a very round number to me, but that is what Alpina's official word is at the moment.
By the way, I agree that the B7 is truly a wonderful car... I love mine and at 6 months old it just keeps getting better. Your car does look great in whatever color silver that actually is! Enjoy your ride!!!
I can confirm the exact rareness now. Only 21 were painted in Titanium Grey - so only 4% of the total production run.Thanks, Kees. I think that the titanium gray is superb on the car and I do believe it to be fairly rare. Black seems to be the most common body color on this side of the pond with a few whites and Alpina blues thrown in.
Yup. 801 units including the original showcar.I read in a post previously that production had been stopped at about 800 units. Do you have any specific knowledge on the production run total?
Thanks, BW#4 B7. I have about 11,000 on the clock now and the car remains flawless. I'm like you in wondering what my next car will be down the road. I don't know how to top this one. I have not seen any other B7s on the road either; however, there are quite a few around Houston.Pino
The car looks great in titanium grey, love the plates. I have a 08 Alpina Blue B7 and love the car more and more each day. This is my 4th E65/E66 and can’t believe what an exciting difference over the stock car. <O></O>
I get stopped at least three times a day by people who just ask what is that a new model or something. <O></O>
The younger tuner crowd in jap pocket rockets slow down to give a knowingly thumbs up and the S63 and Porsche dudes just hang behind not wanting to threaten the beast. Its so civil and refined when driven normally, but press that sport button and what a monster comes out. It’s going to be difficult to get into a normal next generation 7er, I am hooked on Alpina. <O></O>
I am not sure about around your way, but here in NY city and NJ area I cant say I have run across one other B7, I have seen them at dealers but not in every day drives :cheers:<O></O>
