The new BMW ALPINA D4 Bi-Turbo

The foundation that Burkard Bovensiepen laid in the 1960s in the form of a performance-enhanced BMW 1500, has since developed into a permanent fixture in the luxury sports car segment. What were then the first technologically advanced products marketed by ALPINA, namely four-cylinder petrol engines with Weber dual carburettors, are now in modern form high-tech automobiles. Equipped from the outset with the best possible genes by BMW, they represent the ultimate in performance, comfort, driving culture and efficiency.

The BMW ALPINA D4 Bi-Turbo Coupe and Convertible take the lead in the segment of sporty and luxurious two-door models powered by diesel engines. The sublime combination of power, torque, efficiency and smooth handling make for a flawless driving experience. The 3.0 litre straight-six diesel engine with Bi-Turbo charging harmonises seamlessly with the 8-Speed Sport-Automatic Transmission and grant the sporty Coupé and the elegant Convertible with thrilling performance.

The new BMW ALPINA D4 Bi-Turbo receives subtle design changes as part of the latest model update, including new front and rear aprons with chrome accents. New LED head- and fog lights, now standard, ensure maximum road illumination for improved safety and lend the new BMW ALPINA D4 Bi-Turbo a distinctive, powerful appearance. A newly designed tail-light cluster, now also in LED technology, rounds-off the package. Superior material quality and refined interior control elements go hand-in-hand with an extended standard equipment level which now includes split-folding rear seats, automatic air conditioning with two-zone control and ConnectedDrive Services for better connectivity.


The design of the BMW ALPINA D4 Bi-Turbo Coupe combines muscular and delicate elements in one chic silhouette. The Coupe is longer, wider and significantly lower than the Saloon.Its profile rakes from an imposing, muscular front accentuated with bold lines to a clean and stylish rear. The front spoiler, with subtle ALPINA lettering, integrates seamlessly into the dynamic front apron which is characterised by large air intakes for the cooling system of the turbo-charged engine, the transmission and the high-performance fixed-calliper brake system. Powered by 257 kW (350 hp) and 700 Nm torque, the new BMW ALPINA D4 Bi-Turbo Coupe accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in just 4.6 seconds on the way to a top speed of 278 km/h. The combined fuel consumption based on the ECE norm (NEDC) ist just 5.3 l/100 km and 139 g/km CO2.


BMW ALPINA convertibles based on the BMW 3 respectively 4 Series have for many decades been enjoyed by a small and particularly loyal group of enthusiastic owners. The BMW ALPINA D4 Bi-Turbo Convertible continues this success, and fills a very specific niche. It offers abundant, effortless power and long-distance cruising ability in an elegant and stylish silhouette – regardless of whether the roof is up or down. Smooth power delivery, generous torque reserves and excellent refinement makes the powerful 3-litre six cylinder Bi-Turbo diesel engine ideally suited to the versatile BMW 4 Series Convertible with folding metal roof. Powered by 257 kW (350 hp) and 700 Nm of torque, the D4 Bi-Turbo Convertible accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in just 5.0 seconds on its way to a top speed of 275 km/h. The combined fuel consumption based on the ECE norm (NEDC) is just 5.9 l/100 km and 155 g/km CO2.

... dynamic TRAVELLING

The ALPINA driving experience is unique - perhaps best characterised by effortlessness and powerful confidence. The intelligent suspension and chassis set-up plays a pivotal role in this by allowing high, perceptible comfort combined with outstanding driving dynamics and neutral handling. This is the oft-cited driving comfort ‘made by‘ ALPINA. The adaptive ALPINA sports suspension combines electronically adjustable dampers with springs, auxiliary springs and anti-roll bars. Independent of the active dampers continuously adapting to the current driving conditions, the driver can also noticeably adjust the suspension and overall driving dynamics towards a more comfort or sport orientated setup.

Distinct Personality

The design language of the D4 Bi-Turbo Convertible is defined by short overhangs, precise, muscular shoulder contours, a wide rear end and the characteristic metal folding roof. The sporty and powerful design of the front spoiler features functional air intakes and forms a perfect aerodynamic match with the discreet rear spoiler. This results in a very clean and sharp appearance even when the roof is down.

The ALPINA CLASSIC 20” wheels blend seamlessly into the overall appearance of the convertible and lend it a particularly elegant look. The roof, which at the push of a button closes in just 20 seconds and up to a speed of 18 km/h, transforms the convertible into a winter-proof coupé. The contour of the closed roof with its steep rear window, together with the flat boot and ALPINA rear spoiler create an absolutely unique exterior appearance.

Trained Athlete

The design of the Coupé successfully blends powerful sportiness and elegant beauty in a flowing form. Its profile sweeps from a muscular front with striking lines and expressive surfaces, along a gently rising shoulder line to a wide and powerful rear. The low, extended silhouette of the Coupé is just perfect for the ALPINA CLASSIC wheels. The timeless design with twenty spokes and concealed inner valve give the Coupé a light and dynamic appearance, through the spokes the blue brake callipers with a ALPINA lettering are visible. The oval twin tailpipes of the exhaust system are particularly distinctive and are attractively integrated into the rear apron.
