The ALPINA B4 Gran Coupé Inside and Out
The B4 Gran Coupé is set to be a serious contender in the high-performance luxury market, with a sublime interior and an ALPINA precision finish. But in case you need some more convincing, we have the full details here.
ALPINA have been manufacturing luxury cars since 1965, so with that much experience you can rest assured that this four door family luxury cruiser will exceed your expectations and push the boundaries of what’s possible in luxury cars.
The B4GC will provide a driving experience like no other and wrapped up in an iconic design that we will go in to in more detail below!
The B4 Gran Coupé exudes class, with its chrome grille, angular piercing headlights and prominent front end, it demands attention and is certainly a head turner.
Classically inspired 20-inch forged alloys, which only weigh 12KG each, hug each corner of the car. The front is adorned with an ALPINA front spoiler while, the side includes ALPINA graphics which lead you to a stealthy rear spoiler that cast the lines upward. Right at the back you’ll find the ALPINA sports exhaust system nestled in a new rear diffusor.
The engine is based on the infamous S58 turbocharged engine. ALPINA designed a new air intake, a high-performance cooling system and used smaller turbos to improve lower rev range response.
All of this means the B4GC produces 495bhp and 538lb ft of torque. So it definitely has enough power to produce a smooth yet responsive driving experience at all speeds.
The B4GC also comes equipped with a rear-wheel-biased four-wheel-drive system, helping put the extra power down and propel you to 60 mph in a very brisk 3.7 seconds. You’ll also be able to achieve an incredible 187mph where laws allow.
Gearing is handled by an 8-speed automatic gearbox which ALPINA fitted an uprated torque converter and some software tweaks to handle the power on offer.
Handling is improved thanks to a new front anti-roll bar to handle the 1965KG weight figure and also ALPINA bespoke spring and damper setups too. Ensuring your B4 will get you from A to B in pure comfort.
If you’ve been around the ALPINA brand before, you know the one place to look is the interior. They have a way with material and design that seems to raise the bar for manufacturers.
The standout here is the bespoke LAVALINA leather upholstery. Naturally tanned leather which is in a class of its own really brings the B4 to a luxury standard and creates a cabin you won’t want to leave and you’ll struggle to settle for anything less ever again.
From the steering wheel emblem to the small plaque by the gear selector, you can even have the option of embossing the seats with the brand crest of “ALPINA” to tie the whole car together to unite the exterior and interior so you can constantly be reminded you’re driving something special.
It’s no secret the B4GC is going to be an incredible car, a perfect balance of luxe motoring and power to provide any driver a rewarding experience whether you want to settle in for the miles, or drive a bit more spiritedly and feel the performance. It really could be the only car you’ll ever need.
