Alpina has taken the wraps off their new B4 BiTurbo Coupe at the Tokyo Motor Show
Alpina has taken the wraps off their new B4 BiTurbo Coupe at the Tokyo Motor Show.
Based on the BMW 4-Series Coupe, the Alpina B4 BiTurbo has an understated appearance that looks classically elegant. Despite the restrained design, the model has been equipped with front / rear spoilers, a stainless steel sports exhaust system and 20-inch Alpina Classic wheels with Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires.
Interior changes are limited but include Lavalina leather upholstery, special floor mats and the obligatory Alpina badging.
Power is provided by a twin-turbo 3.0-liter six-cylinder engine that produces 410 HP (301 kW) and 600 Nm (443 lb-ft) of torque. It is connected to an eight-speed automatic transmission which enables the coupe to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 4.2 seconds and hit a top speed of 305 km/h (189 mph). In terms of efficiency, owners can expect to average 7.6 L/100km (30.9 mpg US / 37.1 mpg UK) with CO2 emissions of 177 g/km.
Speaking of performance, the model has also been equipped with a sport-tuned suspension and a high-performance braking system with discs that measure 370mm front / 345mm rear.
The Alpina B4 BiTurbo Coupe will go on sale in May and an all-wheel drive variant will be available in certain countries.
