  1. Why am I seeing it in 2017 ? 😳

  2. Normally I would prefer the Audi, but that paint on the BMW is gorgeous

  3. BMW is out of the box for example look at the color of it and then look at the Audi the color is plain

  4. The Alpina B7 is and was never meant to be a sports car (or saloon). Instead the B7 is one of the ultimative business cars (not in this colour, i would chose a Lagungrün Metallik for the exterior and for the interior brown Leather) to make you feel like you have sat in a couch for after driving it 2000 kilometers (but it also gives you the ability to do that while you are driving at extremely high speeds). The quality of the interior is at Bentley levels (extremely soft leather and nicest materials which you can chose from so the car is fully customizable and many parts are handmade). I personally do not like the quad exhaust on those new Alpina’s much (Alpina’s are meant to fly under the radar so only the ones who know about this car will actually know how much it costs and how fast it is) but they do sound fantastic in real life. This was my attempt of trying to tell what a Alpina really is. It is totally not a BMW anymore.

  5. I didn’t know Guy Fieri does dyno work.

  6. This guy wants EVERY car to feel like a sports car. Very bad reviews from this guy. Not worth watching.

  7. I have watched quite a few reviews from you guys and I have to say – you are as good as it gets on the net, bar none. Great work guys, keep it up.

  8. He takes a turbo sport model and compares it to a non sport I smell Troll

  9. They make all this videos nice bla bla bla…but why now body tells the truth about the problems of this cars? I am sure there is what to tall about. If you watch at about 7minutes when they film the alpinas speedometer you can c the check engine on,already ? Wtf

  10. Lord please bless me with this B7 Alpina so help me God. Lead me to my desired luxurious wealthy lifestyle.

  11. its true about the brakes on the audi as a valet who parks cars most of the time
    the only other audi which has worst brakes for me is a rs7 but that is from only from one rs7 ive driven

  12. he didnt do a full review of the alpina. he just talked about the audi. come on jonny is this a headtohead or ignition?

  13. AUDI always beat bmw pooooooooooor BMW

  14. Just buy a Tesla if you can afford either of these. It’s much faster and efficient.

  15. Jonny you should do a video of these 2 compared to the arg s65

  16. I OWN AND A5 2012 PREMIUM PLUS,, 4 CYLINDER TURBO,, ITS FASTER THAN MY SISTER BMW 7 SERIES WHICH IS A 8 CYLINDER CAR,, AND THEY BOTH WIGHT THE SAME,, 4000 POUNDS PLUS,, MY FRIENDS,, AUDI IS A REFINED SPACESHIP, THAT TAKES OFF,, MERCEDES FAN BOYS BMW FAN BOYS LOOK AT THE FACTS,, EVEN A STOCK RS7 IS FASTER THAN A FERRARI F12 CMON MAN,, STOP WITH THE NONSENSE,, AUDI WINS LE MANS RACES ALL THE TIME, AND VOLKSWAGEN OWNS LIKE 7 DIFFERENT CAR COMPANIES INCLUDING BUGATTI AND LAMBORGHINI ,, ENOUGH SAID,,

  17. if you wann pull out the 760 well pull out the r8 son spyder

  18. Why a 20% loss rate for the Audi and 15% for the BMW on the dino?

  19. why do they call it b7 instead of 7 series

  20. Waaw the b7 is ugly

  21. wow man. It sounded all so boring. Why did you guys do that? were you forced to sound more serious/boring? We love the other over the top H2H.

  22. i love BMW 😍

  23. These type of cars are simply way too heavy! Driving sporty with a 2.2 ton car is impossible. Fast luxury saloon that drive pretty well thanks to a shitload computers taking away the real driving experience.

  24. 11:45, Audi distance

  25. why compare the S8 to the Alpina and not to the M7? i bet you will be a bmw fan again. :)))

  26. +Motor Trend Channel … You should compare a B6 to an RS7

  27. Audi 😍😍

  28. sleepy ep

  29. I would get myself a cl65 amg instead

  30. Old videos like this are boring to watch.

  31. I’d be stuck what to buy?? My heart says the S8 but my brain is saying the B7?

  32. fucking BMW his 4×4 is trash :QWE:W:

  33. We need this but adding the s600 maybach

  34. ALPINA 4×4???? what the fuck is rong with this world today?????????

  35. Come on motor trend you guys are killing me let’s get the new 2017 B7 review up already along with the M760 people are dying to see these cars. How about a new head to head with the new B7 and the S8 plus

  36. Did you look at how stable the BMW was on the dyno compared to the S8… Talks a lot about the car’s handling!

  37. So basically Audi’s RS and S series are more powerful than an R8. SMH

  38. audi and bmw need to up there game and give a full change to there exteriors.mercedes is doing a much better job at the moment

  39. The S8 is better in almost everyway, except…. LWB. Alpine does it, Audi should do it too. It’s an A8 for crying out loud. People that buy cars this size mostly go for the LWB anyway.

    Now, I do genuinely believe there was something wrong with the B7 in this test. I’m an Audi fan, but there is no denying the power that comes out of BMW’s new turbo V8’s. For them to produce a car that doesn’t even match its claimed HP, seems off.

  40. I’m just starting to think Jonny boy just hates anything BMW related lol…

  41. hey JOHNNY QUESTION HOW THE A 485 HP HAS A 20% LOST REACH 596 WHAT THE HELL BREACK THAT DOWN FOR ME AGAIN ITS A OLD SHOW AND ALL BUT SHIT FIX YOUR SHIT O by the way great cars B7 vs S7 love both

  42. Non of them can compete against BENZ or VOLVO

  43. audi won’t ever have anything on bmw Troll

  44. how are the front wheels turning on dyno if the Alpina is rwd?

  45. Audi have a habit of underrating their cars. This even happens right down to the s/rs3!! On a 8v platform atleast! Repeatedly the m135i owner will jump into an s3 and be shocked and visa Also mercs a45 amg will go head2head with the rs3 despite Audi having 20/30 less horsepower and still beats it in a mile drag race! However I am bias and a huge audi fanboy. 😉

  46. I’ve honestly been trying to get myself off Audi and look towards BMW. But every single time, Audi wins. It’s been decided now. Actually I think it was already decided from the start.

  47. fuck AWD bmw and mercedes,tradition is RWD,awd is for scared loosers that are afraid

  48. i have and always will buy an audi over every other car (maybe not porsche or any exotic car brand but you get what i mean) because 1.) I am such a fan boy based on how they look, i mean god damn does audi make beautiful cars and 2.) I have such bias toward them because my dad has always driven audis. His first car was an a4, then moved to 2 TT’s then a Q5 (which i actually liked more than I though) and now he’s at an a6

  49. just get a better looking lighter 560hp rs7
