http://www.carscoops.com/2013/11/alpina-turns-bmw-4-series-coupe-into.html



The new BMW Alpina B4 Bi-Turbo made its world premiere at the Tokyo Motor Show today featuring the same powertrain as the 3-Series-based Alpina B3 Bi-Turbo.
The German aftermarket specialist’s take on the new BMW 4-Series Coupe is as traditional as ever, with the car featuring an understated but assertive look thanks to the elegant aerodynamic package, the hallmark 20-inch Alpina Classic twenty-spoke wheels and subtle details like the Alpina lettering on the front spoiler, blue brake calipers and signature twin tailpipes.

Powered by a twin-turbocharged 6-cylinder 3.0-liter engine producing 404hp (410PS) at 5,500 rpm and 600 Nm (442 lb-ft) from 3,000 rpm, the Alpina B4 Bi-Turbo could be considered as an alternative to the upcoming BMW M4 Coupe, given its performance specs: 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) takes just 4.2 seconds and top speed is 305 km/h (190 mph).

The engine is mated to an 8-speed Sport-Automatic transmission that contributes to a preliminary average fuel consumption of 7.6 l/100 km (31 mpg US) and CO2 emissions of 177 g/km – corresponding to the B4 Bi-Turbo Coupe with rear-wheel drive. If you don’t believe that, Alpina says real life fuel consumption will easily drop below 10 l/100 km (23.5 mpg US).

The tuner will offer the B4 Bi-Turbo both as RWD and AWD, with export prices (excluding taxes) starting from €57,647 ($77,975) for the rear-wheel drive model and from €60,084 ($81,270) for the all-wheel drive model.

very nice but for that price, I'd take an M4. Alpina does offer awd, though...hmmm
I agree. Aplina has it's place, if i was buying a new 7 series, i would rather get an Alpina B7, but when it comes to the 4 series, M4 all the way!

I wish there was a video of this thing driving around. I want to hear what the engine sounds like. Looks great and that 404 hp would really get the car to take off. Is that an added spoiler on the back too?
