Currently in the Sytner Nottingham showroom available for immediate delivery is a superbly specified ALPINA D4 Convertible, number 058 and one of 16 in the UK.
The Mineral White metallic paint is light enough to show off the bodywork’s flowing lines while the ALPINA aero kit and quad Akropovic exhausts lend a discreet yet purposeful look completed by the 20” ALPINA Classic wheels enclosing powerful Brembo brakes with distinctive blue callipers and an ALPINA specific pad compound.
On the inside, black leather piped and stitched in a contrasting red continues the theme of distinctive understatement, while heated seats and the Air Collar system ensure the cabin remains cosy with the roof down whatever the time of year. Blue ALPINA instruments, LAVALINA trimmed steering wheel, silver etched Piano Black wood and a unique numbered production plaque mark the interior out as something over and above the usual.
Swift progress is ensured by the extensively reengineered 3.0-litre twin turbo diesel that delivers 350hp and 700nm of torque through the 8-speed gearbox which itself features an uprated torque converter and solenoids for smooth and crisp changes. Comfort is taken care of by gas-filled Bilstein dampers and ALPINA specific spring rates, while the Michelin Pilot SuperSport tyres are non-run-flats with far greater compliance through the sidewall. In combination with the revised steering rack, these changes also ensure a degree of nimbleness and athleticism lacking from the regular 4 Series.
This particular car also comes with the very rarely seen option of Active Cruise Control, making it an excellent motorway companion. For a full spec list or to discuss further, please call ALPINA GB Brand Manager Gary Lott on 0115 837 1858.
