The new BMW ALPINA B4 S Bi-Turbo
The foundation that Burkard Bovensiepen laid in the 1960s in the form of a performance-enhanced BMW 1500, has since developed into a permanent fixture in the luxury sports car segment. What were then the first technologically advanced products marketed by ALPINA, namely four-cylinder petrol engines with Weber dual carburettors, are now in modern form high-tech automobiles. Equipped from the outset with the best possible genes by BMW, they represent the ultimate in performance, comfort, driving culture and efficiency.
The new BMW ALPINA B4 S Bi-Turbo models combine these characteristics like no other and stand out from the crowd with their dynamic styling paired with a modest elegance. The revised straight-six 3.0 litre engine now delivers even more power and ensures thrilling performance. The adaptive ALPINA sport suspension and the revamped 8-Speed Sport-Automatic transmission with ALPINA SWITCH-TRONIC deliver impressive dynamics and maximum comfort.
The new BMW ALPINA B4 S Bi-Turbo receives subtle design changes as part of the latest model update, including new front and rear aprons with chrome accents. New LED head- and fog lights, now standard, ensure maximum road illumination for improved safety and lend the new BMW ALPINA B4 S Bi-Turbo a distinctive, powerful appearance. A newly designed tail-light cluster, now also in LED technology, rounds-off the package. Superior material quality and refined interior control elements go hand-in-hand with an extended standard equipment level which now includes split-folding rear seats and ConnectedDrive Services for better connectivity.
