BMW ALPINA B8 Gran Coupe with 612 hp | FIRST LOOK

10 Просмотры
Starting at $139,900, the ALPINA B8 Gran Coupe is actually cheaper than the BMW M8 Gran Coupe Competition, while being more exclusive, better looking, and arguably more desirable. It goes on sale Spring 2021 in the and we absolutely cannot wait to drive it.

Obviously, the ALPINA B8 Gran Coupe starts life as a BMW M850i Gran Coupe but after the team at ALPINA is done with it, the B8 is a vastly superior machine. For starters, the BMW liter twin-turbocharged V8 is taken out, torn down, and fitted with a ton of new kit. The usual ALPINA engine treatment involves replacing the pistons, intercooler, intake manifold, exhaust manifold, fitting larger twin-scroll turbochargers, and giving it its own bespoke tune.

All of which combines to make 612 horsepower and 590 lb-ft of torque. While that isn't a drastic improvement over the M850i's engine (523 horsepower and 553 lb-ft) on paper, the two engines feel drastically different on the road, as judged by the ALPINA B7 and XB7. The ALPINA version is smoother, more responsive, packs a bigger punch, and even sounds better. The latter of which is amplified by an ALPINA-specific stainless steel exhaust system, designed to enhance the sound of the big V8.
