There are many for whom the sportier BMW range is too beastly and if you are looking for an alternative, it is best to go through the Alpina configurator.
After showing us the renewed BMW 8 Series last week, Alpina has taken a new step and shows us the renewed Alpina B8 Gran Coupea model that has received all the updates of the renewed BMW 8 Series.
With a price starting at €162,100 and delivery dates that will start this summer, Alpina shows us a B8 that receives many subtle changes.
The B8 Gran Coupe receives a new illuminated grille and revised unique green and blue exteriors. Alternatively, Alpina customers can choose from a wide range of BMW and BMW Individual paint finishes. The 20-inch multi-spoke wheels are equipped with Pirelli tires in dimensions 245/35 ZR21 at the front and 285/30 ZR21 at the rear.
The Alpina B8 Gran Coupé comes as standard with the new 12.3-inch Live Cockpit Professional display, illuminated Alpina door sills, the iDrive controller in glass with an Alpina logo or the hand-finished natural leather steering wheel.
There are no changes under the hood where the B8 Gran Coupe is powered by a modified version of BMW’s 4.4-litre twin-turbocharged V8 engine. The model generates 457 kW and 800 Nm of torque. This incredible mechanic is mated to an eight-speed torque converter automatic transmission.
Thanks to this combination, Alpina announces that the B8 Gran Coupé is capable of covering the 0 to 100 km/h in just 3.4 seconds. The model is capable of reaching a top speed of 324 km/h.
In addition to these performance and aesthetic enhancements, Alpina often adds a sleek yet sporty touch to its products, something you can enjoy in the gallery.
