Chassis & Suspension
The new BMW ALPINA B7 combines the latest suspension technology to offer exceptional ride comfort at any speeds as well as unrivalled agility and precision handling.
The two-axle air suspension system combined with Dynamic Damper Control and Active Comfort Drive with Road Preview guarantees the very highest level of driving comfort while the Active Roll Stabilization minimizes body roll during cornering. The rear-axle steering of the Integral Active Steering system gives the new BMW ALPINA B7 class-leading levels of dynamic performance and light-footed handling. While the two-axle air suspension system with auto-levelling function is primarily responsible for the exceptional level of ride comfort, it also enables the ride height to be adjusted by a total of 35 mm (1.4”). At speeds above 230 km/h (140 mph) or when selecting Sport+ Mode the BMW ALPINA B7 automatically reduces its ride height by 15 mm (0.6”) for a lower centre of gravity, improved handling as a result of more negative camber and high-speed stability. When needed, the ride height can also be raised by 20 mm (0.8”) up to a speed of 30 km/h (20 mph) in order to increase ground clearance.
