Return of Alpina B4 Could be Gran Coupe Say New Rumours

Alpina B4 could return with 4 doors

  • B4 offering could be the Gran Coupe model rather than a two-door

  • Alpina has launched B3 off of new 3 Series, but not the 4 Series equivalent


Alpina recently revealed the M3-challenging B3 family of grand touring sedans, but nothing has been seen of a return of the two-door 4-Series based B4. Now some new rumours say that Alpina is readying its usual magic touch on the BMW 4-Series to create a replacement B4.

The rumours come from a post on BimmerPost (via Motor1) and say that a new B4 will be arriving early next year. The same information says that rather than the two-door version, though, this B4 will be based on the Gran Coupe model. That’s the 4 Series with four doors, a hatch, and a sleeker roofline than the standard 3 Series sedan.

The car is expected to be based on the 440ix, which comes from the factory with a 382 hp 3.0L I6. It sends its power to all four wheels through an eight-speed auto. The B3 uses a modified version of that engine to make 426 hp and 516 lb-ft, which is less power but more torque than BMW’s own M models.

Alpina’s usual move is to make a car that’s nearly as high performance as the M version of a BMW line, but instead of aggressive styling and overly sharp handling, Alpina aims to be a long-distance tourer. More emphasis on torque and ride comfort than ultimate performance.

In Europe, Alpina offers modified versions of nearly every longitudinal-engine BMW model, including gas and diesel variants.
