The BMW Alpina B12

The last of the naturally aspirated BMW 7 series, the magnificent e38 was an irresistible mix of luxury, exclusivity & performance. BMW never made an M7 but in the guise of the Alpina B12 6.0 the e38 was the ultimate car.

The B12 badge was reserved for Alpina's flagship cars. Previously the e31 and e 32 donned the famous moniker and when Alpina produced the e38 they pushed the boundaries to a whole different level.
Having previously released the 5.7 litre version of the e38 in 1999 Alpina decided that they wanted to go one step further with the B12 6.0, which debuted at the Geneva Motor show. The v12 was enlarged to 6 litres which produces 430bhp and 600nm of torque at 4,200rpm. 
Performance is blistering. 0-62mph in less than 6 seconds and would clear 1km in 23.5 seconds, which was faster than it's closest rival the Ferrari F355. The top speed is in excess of 180mph.
The car features Alpina's pioneering E-Kat, an electrically heated catalytic converter which improved the control of the exhaust emissions during the engine's warm up phase. The E-cat named was dropped form the title and badges for 6 litre. It was finished off with a delicious quad exhaust system.
Externally other body modifications were subtle. 20" alpina staggered alloy wheels shod in Michelin Pilot sport rubber, front lip spoiler and simple chrome lettering on the boot meant that the initiated would easily mistake it for a standard 7 series. If selected the optional Alpina pinstripes added an extra dimension to the appearance.
The same five speed ZF 5HP30 automatic gearbox was used with Switch-Tronic steering wheel control alongside a lower final drive. Uprated springs  in conjunction with Bilstein gas dampers contributed to it's magic carpet ride.
In 1999 the e38 received a facelift meaning that the new 6.0 was all new in both visual terms and performance. There were just 94 6.0 litres produced and just 7 in RHD.
