Labor Day weekend marks the unofficial end of summer in the US. The three-day weekend is a time of year when millions of Americans hit the road for one last summer getaway, clogging our nation’s interstates and highways with traffic. Imagine my dismay, then, to learn that I would be reviewing the 2011 BMW Alpina B7 over Labor Day weekend.
Oh wait; maybe that didn’t come out right. While I may have been challenged to find an open road during my week with the Alpina B7, my week with the car was not fraught with dismay. Far from it- when the car was put on my review schedule, I was nearly euphoric - and then I had to start researching the specifications and provenance of this very special BMW.
