The BMW ALPINA B7 features the latest generation 8-Speed Sport Automatic Transmission from ZF (8HP76) with ALPINA SWITCH-TRONIC. The transmission software has been thoroughly reworked by ALPINA and adapted specifically to the performance characteristics of the new engine, offering exceptional driving comfort and dynamic performance in all situations.
Close gear ratios and a total spread of 7.81:1 results in high level of shift comfort and efficiency. In Automatic Mode the combination of eight gears and high engine torque facilitate relaxed cruising at low engine rpm even when travelling at higher speeds. In Sport Mode the shift times have been further improved and are now considerably quicker and more energetic.
