Alpina is a performance tuning company that can turn a station wagon into a terrific 700hp supercar slayer with BMW’s partnership. After the grand success of the BMW Alpina B7 Sedan and the XB7 Sports Activity Vehicle, Alpina, in partnership with BMW, is all set to offer an M8 rival super sedan with magnificent luxury finishes.
The 2022 BMW Alpina B8 Gran Coupe has a 4.4 liter V8 engine with bi-turbo charging that produces an output of 612 hp, while the torque checks in at 590 pound-feet. This car’s sport exhaust system reduces back pressure and features the natural sound of a powerful V8 engine. The driver can always choose to switch between comfort and sport mode to influence the engine’s sound. The shift dynamics are much better, based upon the selected drive mode. That’s without giving up on the shift comfort which Alpina is famous for.
