The 500-hp BMW Alpina B7 is the extreme expression of Bavaria’s 7-series sports luxury barge. Sure, it hits 60 mph in 4.5 seconds, and it cocoons its wealthy driver in an acre of hand-stitched leather. But its brawn is matched by its brains. The optional BMW Night Vision system, with a front-facing camera and thermal imaging technology, can detect pedestrians and animals up to 900 feet down the road. As you get closer, the system will determine whether you’re approaching an animal or human, and alert you accordingly on a heads-up display.
