Smooth and fast

The ALPINA engineers worked with the transmission experts from ZF to specifically adapt the 8-Speed Sport Automatic Transmission from the 8HP76 generation to the torquey drivetrain, resulting in both outstanding shift comfort and shift dynamics depending on the chosen transmission mode. To be able to handle a torque output of 730 Nm (538 lb-ft), selected transmission components like the torque converter and the wheel set have been structurally reinforced.

Performance enhancing all-wheel drive

The all-wheel drive is based on the BMW xDrive system, which allows for a fully variable torque distribution between the front and rear axle. As befits the athletic character of the BMW ALPINA B4, the torque distribution is rear-wheel biased.

Limited-slip differential

The electronically controlled rear limited-slip differential ensures optimal traction and agility – especially during dynamic cornering.

Only the CO2 emissions caused by the operation of the car are stated here. CO2 emissions caused by the production and provision of the car and the fuel or energy source are not taken into account when determining CO2 emissions in accordance with the WLTP (Worldwide harmonised Light-duty vehicles Test Procedure).

The fuel consumption and CO2 emissions of a car are not only dependent on the efficient the efficient utilisation of the fuel by the car, but also the driving style and other driving style and other non-technical factors. CO2 is the main is the main greenhouse gas responsible for global warming.

A guide to the fuel consumption and CO2 emissions of all new car models models offered in Germany is available free of charge at every point of sale in Germany where new point of sale in Germany where new cars are displayed or offered for sale. The guide is also available here:
