Smooth and fast
The ALPINA engineers worked with the transmission experts from ZF to specifically adapt the 8-Speed Sport Automatic Transmission from the 8HP76 generation to the torquey drivetrain, resulting in both outstanding shift comfort and shift dynamics depending on the chosen transmission mode. To be able to handle a torque output of 730 Nm (538 lb-ft), selected transmission components like the torque converter and the wheel set have been structurally reinforced.
Performance enhancing all-wheel drive
The all-wheel drive is based on the BMW xDrive system, which allows for a fully variable torque distribution between the front and rear axle. As befits the athletic character of the BMW ALPINA B4, the torque distribution is rear-wheel biased.
The electronically controlled rear limited-slip differential ensures optimal traction and agility – especially during dynamic cornering.
Stated fuel consumption and CO2 emissions are measured pursuant to EU Regulation 715/2007 in its applicable version. From 1st of September 2018 the Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP) has replaced the New European Driving Cycle (NEDC).
From January 2021 onwards, European Union member states are required to ensure that new passenger cars offered for sale, for lease or exhibited in showrooms or similar, are clearly labelled with consumption and emission data according to the new WLTP test cycle. Work is currently underway on the amendment of the German regulatory framework which governs the implementation of this European Union obligation in German law, its final completion however is still outstanding. For a number of new vehicles, NEDC consumption and emission values are no longer available, it is therefore reasonable that the more realistic WLTP consumption and emission values are provided to customers instead.
The official manufacturer consumption and emission values have already been determined on the basis of the new WLTP test cycle and, for some models, calculated back to NEDC test cycle for information purposes. The WLTP values are used for the assessment of taxes.

Fuel consumption WLTP, combined: 10.1 l/100 km
CO2 emissions WLTP combined: 229 g/km
All technical data apply to the German market, additional international units of measure shown in the technical data for the purposes of information only. Further information on specific fuel consumption and CO2 emissions of new passenger cars is provided by the ‚Leitfaden über den Kraftstoffverbrauch, die CO2-Emissionen und den Stromverbrauch neuer Personenkraftwagen‘ which can be obtained free of charge at all points of sale and from the Deutsche Automobil Treuhand GmbH (DAT) or online https://www.dat.de/co2/.
