The all-new Alpina B7 has been caught on camera up close and personal on a rainy day while refueling.

The all-new Alpina B7 has been caught on camera on a rainy day while refueling.

BMW recently took the wraps off the new generation 7-Series and already Alpina has got its hands on the car to elaborate a high-powered version destined for those who were disappointed to hear there won’t be an M7. Despite the heavy camouflage on this prototype, you will notice that it has received a front splitter while at the back there’s a trunk lid spoiler to boost downforce.

Under the hood we expect to find the 4.4-liter V8 twin-turbo engine which should be massaged to deliver in excess of 600 PS (441 kW) which will enable the Alpina B7 run the 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) in a little over 4 seconds. Aside from getting a power hike, Alpina's engineers will also stiffen up the suspension and make some changes to the transmission while the company's specific turbine-style wheels along with some interior cabin tweaks will round off the changes.

Chances are we will see it sometime next year at a major auto show, unless Alpina decides to surprise us by bringing it to the Frankfurt Motor Show set for mid-September.
