PRECISION DYNAMICS AND COMFORT THE ALPINA SPORT SUSPENSION Countless test kilometres were completed on Europe’s most demanding test tracks during the development of the BMW ALPINA B8’s sport suspension system. The result is a very refined suspension and chassis set-up that combines first-class long- distance ride comfort with precise handling characteristics. The BMW ALPINA B8 impresses in a myriad of driving situations with its harmonious, balanced chassis and a high sense of safety. The steering offers direct steering response with exceptional feedback. The adaptive dampers provide for a wide range of driving experiences, ranging from COMFORT+ to SPORT+. The 8-Speed Sport Automatic Transmission converts the high engine output into superb driving performance. Depending on the selected drive mode, shift dynamics have been raised to a whole new level without compromising on the smooth shift comfort that ALPINA is renowned for.
SUPERIOR PERFORMANCE The eight-cylinder engine of the BMW ALPINA B8 is characterised by a dynamic and smooth power delivery and offers excellent responsiveness over the entire rpm range. The 4.4 litre V8 engine with bi-turbo charging produces an impressive 457 kW (621 hp). The maximum torque of 800 Nm (590 lb-ft) is available from just 2000 rpm and maintained up to 5000 rpm. The engine’s power characteristics and superb throttle response are the result of optimised turbocharging and cooling systems, not to mention ALPINA’s instantly recognizable throttle harmony.

TECHNICAL DATA BMW ALPINA B8 GRAN COUPÉ This is a translation of the original German brochure which fulfils the requirements of German law. All technical data in this brochure apply to the German market, additional international units of measure shown in the technical data for the purposes of information only. Further information on specific fuel con- sumption and CO2 emissions of new passenger cars is provided by the ‚Leitfaden über den Kraftstoffverbrauch, die CO2-Emissionen und den Stromverbrauch neuer Personenkraftwagen‘ which can be obtained free of charge at all points of sale and from the Deutsche Automobil Treuhand GmbH (DAT) or online https://www.dat.de/co2. 1 Stated fuel consumption and CO2 emissions are measured pursuant to EU Regulation 715/2007 in its applicable version. From 1st of September 2018 the Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP) has replaced the New European Driving Cycle (NEDC). Regardless of the applied test proce- dure, it is currently still mandatory to state fuel consumption and CO2 emissions according to NEDC, hence stated values are determined based on the WLTP test procedure and are converted to NEDC for comparison purposes. Depending on your country, vehicle related taxes or other duties may be based on fuel consumption and CO2 emissions data which differs from that stated here. The provision of additional fuel consumption and CO2 emissions as determined according to WLTP is currently voluntary until their provision becomes mandatory by law. 2 3 4 The figures quoted includes a 90 % tank filling, 68 kg for the driver and 7 kg for luggage. Unladen weight applies to vehicles with standard equipment. Optional equipment may increase this figure. EU tyre label = fuel efficiency / wet grip / noise class, external rolling noise.
