Customers who think the BMW 4 Series Coupe is rather ordinary are in for a treat especially with what BMW Individual and Alpina have in store. The best example is presently being displayed at BMW Abu Dhabi Motors, a dealer that looks to be getting the best toys to play around with.
Even with one look, the use of Rallye Green paint on the Alpina B4 S makes the body even more aggressive. Combined with the upgrades implemented by those at Buchloe, it is clear that this is not your standard 4 Series Coupe.
On the inside for example, BMW Individual made sure that the interior of the B4 S would be different from the usual 4 Series Coupe. The instrument cluster has blue dials with the steering wheel showing green stitching. This color theme is in fact the same as that on the exterior. While the usual 4 Series Coupe has a left air vent on its center console, the B4 S instead has an extra display. On the lower region of the console is a special plaque that proves this is not the usual car.
Going to the exterior meanwhile, Alpina put on a body kit that comes with a splitter on the front. And in the rear, there’s a rather subtle spoiler lip. The blue brake calipers and the alloy multi-spoke Alpina wheels result in a fascinating combination with the use of green body paint. Then there is the Akrapovic exhaust system that has been tuned specifically for the Alpina.
The powertrain on this upgraded model is inspired mainly with the just released B4 S Bi-Turbo. Specifically, this refers to a straight-six 3.0-liter turbocharged engine capable of 440 hp (324 kW) with peak torque of 442 lb.-ft. (660 Nm). With this, it allows the B4 S Rallye Green rear-wheel-drive version to go from 0 to 62 mph (100 km/h) in 4.2 seconds. The Allrad variant meanwhile can achieve the same in 3.9 seconds. The RWD version has a maximum speed of 190 mph (306 km/h) with the Allrad measured at 188 mph (303 km/h). Customers who want to experience the wind on their hair can opt for the convertible version that Alpina is also offering.
The 4 Series from BMW is a lineup composed of fastback, convertible, and coupe versions. First revealed to the public during the North American International Auto Show in 2013, it was developed as a spin-off of the 3 Series 2-door range. The 4 Series Coupe has starting MSRP of $43,300 with the Gran Coupe at $43,100. The convertible variant meanwhile has MSRP of $51,450, with the Convertible coming in with the same price.
The Coupe variant in particular has an interior that is geared for the driver and aggressive performance is more than guaranteed with the choice of four driving modes, which include ECO PRO and SPORT+. Adding in driving dynamics control brings with it better stability even when running at high speeds.
