Alpina B4 (2014): At A Glance

New Alpina B4 Bi-Turbo coupe and convertible UK launched at Goodwood Festicval of Speed, June 2014.

Based on BMW 4-Series Coupe and convertible, with 410PS, 600Nm torque 0-60 in same 4 seconds as M3 and M4, yet 37mpg ECDC combined and 177g/km CO2.

Less power, but more torque than M4. Very similar performance to M4. Prices £58,950 v/s £58,605 for M4 DCT coupe and £62,950 v/s £62,700 for M4 DCT convertible.

Alpina comments: "B4 performance is almost identical to M4, CO2 much lower for the Alpina. But they are very different cars, not really rivals. The M4 is more track / sports focussed. The Alpina is very road / comfort focussed. They are designed for different types of driver so make a different range of compromises."
