Alpina B4 S Biturbo “Edition 99” Is An Ode To 1970s Color Schemes

While the Alpina B4 S Edition 99 is available as both a Convertible as well as a Coupe, the tuner chose to bring the latter to the 2019 Geneva Motor Show, with the car on display rocking a dual-tone Fire Orange and grey liveried exterior.

As its name suggests, the car is strictly limited to 99 units and if you stick with the Coupe, you can also have all-wheel drive, while the Convertible is RWD-only. Additional paint options are available, like Alpina Blue, Sapphire Black and Mineral White.

Inspiration comes from the ’70s

The design of the B4 S Edition 99 is based on the successful BMW Alpina race cars of the 1970s, which is why the German tuner offers a Fire Orange exterior with a Heritage Design option where selected body panels are covered in an Anthracite wrap, just like on the Geneva show car. As for the Alpina Classic wheels, they have a Ferric Grey shine and measure 20-inches in diameter.

Inside, you’ll find either Alcantara Anthracite or Carbon Leather trim, matte black paddle shifters, a hand-finished Alpina Lavalina sport steering wheel with contrast stitching, hand-finished floor mats, stainless steel production plaques with limited edition numbering and electrically adjustable sports seats.

Alpina installed a revised Sport Plus Suspension to improve driving dynamics, while body reinforcements both at the front and rear increase torsional stiffness and sharpen up chassis response and feedback.

The Edition 99 features a lightweight titanium exhaust system developed together with Akrapovic, while its 3.0-liter straight-six bi-turbo engine produces 452 PS (445 HP) and 660 Nm (486 lb-ft) of torque.

Flooring it from a standstill means you’ll be hitting 100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.9 seconds if you get the xDrive version, that also has A 303 km/h (188 mph) top speed, or 4.2 seconds for the rear-wheel drive that, however, maxes out at 306 km/h (190 mph). Either way, performance is excellent, and both rear- and all-wheel drive models can be paired up with a limited slip differential.

    I know they are a historical feature, but surely someone at Alpina has the balls to stand up and say “You know, those wheels just don’t suit the car anymore, we need to look at a new design”
