More leather and luxury in the Alpina B4 Gran Coupé
Because the four-door hatchback basically helps the engine of the M3 on the jumps. To do this, Alpina meticulously adjusted the chassis, calculated on the drive control programs, brushed the body to a firm posture, poured more leather and luxury into the car and fitted fine 20-inch wheels (with P-Zero tires specially adapted to the car by Pirelli). .
Fast laps on a race track then showed us very quickly how well the engine, transmission and the greedy grip of the B4 work together.
Typical Alpina: sensitively fine-tuned components
The engine pulls up softly and evenly, the turbocharged petrol engine even accepts higher speeds, the four-door car pushes itself out of curves with high traction, and is supported on the side with a good grip.
The brakes respond finely, and the steering works with tension-loaded resetting and more sensitively than in any other production BMW. In addition, Alpina has inoculated the car with both lively and bindingly safe driving behavior.
The price is high, but conclusive
It is simply a wonderfully active pleasure to use the gas pedal to bring the 4 Series into line from gentle understeer in long bends.
Such a noble, fine and absolutely high-quality equipped car with a lot of power and active driving experience is hard to find anywhere else. Its price is high, but conclusive – because the B4 GC is something very special.
