A BMW Alpina can never hide from prying eyes if mostly because of its incredible, unique, and signature 20-spoke Classic wheels. The 21-inch wheels are shod with specially developed Pirelli tires sized 245/35ZR21 up front and 285/30ZR21 in the rear. With these tires, the B8’s top speed is set at an impressive 201 mph.

The power to get up to speed comes from the twin-turbocharged 4.4-litre V8 engine that produces a remarkable 612-horsepower and 590 lb.-ft. of torque. The included 8-Speed Sport Automatic Transmission with Alpina SWITCH-TRONIC enables the B8 to reach 60 mph in only 3.3 seconds, on its way to completing the ¼ mile sprint in 11.5 seconds. Thanks to the Alpina sport exhaust system, every ride will sound amazing.

The B8 can specified BMW, BMW Individual paint hues as well as the unique Alpina Blue Metallic and Green Metallic colours.

As expected, the BMW Alpina B8 Gran Coupé is absolutely loaded with all the latest technologies and comfort features. It arrives in US dealers in the late spring of 2021 and will be priced from $139,900.
