Luxury vehicle manufacturer ALPINA will launch its new B4 S Bi-Turbo at The Confused.com London Motor Show following the model’s international preview at the Geneva Motor Show in March.
The new B4 S Bi-Turbo, available as Coupé and Convertible, provides a unique combination of comfort, refinement and very high performance that is a hallmark of ALPINA’s extensive engineering development. The manufacturer is famed for developing high-performance versions of BMWs, and its new model doesn’t disappoint.
With two new ALPINA-specific turbochargers and an uprated cooling system, power climbs from the previous model’s 410bhp to 434bhp and torque leaps from 600Nm to 660Nm, giving the luxury four-seater a top speed of 190 mph and acceleration that will take it from 0-60mph in just 3.9 seconds.
Based on BMW’s latest generation 4 Series, the B4 S Bi-Turbo is the result of a two-year development programme during which every aspect of the vehicle was analysed and refined to increase performance, comfort, efficiency and style compared with the standard 4 Series.
ALPINA’s newest creation will take to Battersea Evolution from 4-7 May and – just like in Geneva – is sure to cause something of a stir with visitors.
ALPINA GB General Manager, Gary Lott, said: “We are very much looking forward to launching the B4 S Bi-Turbo at The Confused.com London Motor Show. ALPINA customers value the finely honed feel of a bespoke car and the easily accessible performance that comes with substantial torque. An ALPINA is often described as ‘the best performance car for the real world’ and that’s something we are very proud of and looking forward to sharing with guests.”
Alec Mumford, Chairman of The Confused.com London Motor Show, said: “What a tremendous feat of engineering the ALPINA B4 S Bi-Turbo is! ALPINA is the master of taking already impressive BMWs to the next level, and having it launch its all-new model is a real honour. There are few better places in the world to unleash a new car than at The Confused.com London Motor Show and we can’t wait for our guests to see this stunning model in all its glory.”
