Alpina B4 S Bi-Turbo Makes For An Elegant M4 Alternative

As awesome as the BMW M4 is, if you’re craving exclusivity, opting for an Alpina-tuned 4-Series should help you stand out more among the crowd.

The best part is that you wouldn’t be sacrificing any performance, as the B4 S Bi-Turbo puts out 9 PS (9 HP) and 56 Nm (41 lb-ft) more than the stock M4, for a total of 440 PS (434 HP) and 660 Nm (487 lb-ft).

This white model resides with BMW Abu Dhabi, featuring Alpina‘s body kit, which includes the custom front splitter, side skirts and boot lid spoiler. It also has multi-spoke alloys, blue calipers and the tuner’s decals.

Other mods include the adaptive Alpina sport suspension and the revamped 8-speed automatic transmission with Alpina Switch-Tronic tech.

Inside, it’s mostly leather and carbon fiber, which can be found across the dashboard, on the center console and on the door panels. The cabin is both sporty as well as elegant, which is often the case with Alpina products.

  • I love Alpina, I’m more of a GT person and this suited me. Shame that Alpina didn’t grace US road except for B7.

    • Victor Ferreira

      Don’t forget the B6 too.

      • I forgot they sold that there, I’m surprised B7 is still sold there, with M760Li on the line up.

    That works. The wheels and the white paint, very nice.

    Nice!

    Why the hell would Alpina still use the old design steering wheel? Also, I guess the only downside to this car against an M4 would be the transmission. My dream is still an Alpina wagon, though.

    Alpina is such a cool brand, their GT-take on BMW cars is definitely interesting and different from what most tuners would do.

    • Yeah I guess they found their USP with elegance and grand touring performance rather than bonkers hp or flashy looks.

      The fact that Alpina is big in some places like Japan. Shows that tuners don’t have to be crazy to get customer (yes they aren’t technically tuners, but you got what I mean)

      • fabri99

        Yeah, tuning can be subtle (and is usually better this way).

  • Vassilis

    I never liked the exterior changes Alpina make to their cars. I always found those add-ons and wheels a bit kitsch.

    • SteersUright

      1000% agreed!

  • Zandit75

    Not to sound like a broken record, but change the wheel design already!!
    The only other thing to change is the pinstriping. It looks too low, and I think it would look better higher on the beltline framing the door handle.

  • Dennis James

    Can’t wait to see BMW adding the fourth row of buttons on the steering wheel. Or just place a computer keyboard in there.

    While BMW has some of the fanciest headlights, it’s no secret that they’re not the best performance-wise. Alpina has always thrown that feature into the mix to create a tough decision between models. You can either have the large carbon front splitter and blade, or the extra LED strip (M6 vs B6 GC) or fog light (shown here). You’d be surprised with how much of an increase in vision the added lights provide.
