The New 2022 BMW ALPINA B8 Gran Coupe

Buchloe, Germany – March 24, 2021... Following the success of the BMW ALPINA B7 Sedan and XB7 Sports Activity Vehicle, ALPINA is expanding its offering in the premium segment with the new BMW ALPINA B8 Gran Coupι. It combines the highest levels of performance, dynamics and comfort in a bold and beautiful design. The new ALPINA B8 Gran Coupι is truly an exclusive automobile that appeals to all your senses.

The 2022 BMW ALPINA B8 Gran Coupι arrives in U.S. dealers in Late Spring 2021 and will have an MSRP of $139,900 plus $995 Destination.

• Power to spare: The 4.4-liter V8 engine with bi-turbo charging produces an impressive 612 hp. The maximum torque of 590 lb.-ft is available from just 2,000 rpm for power delivery at all times.

• Explosive driving performance: From a standing start, the BMW ALPINA B8 accelerates to 60 mph in 3.3 seconds and reaches 1⁄4 mile in just 11.5 seconds. The maximum speed is 201 mph.

• Tailored V8 sound: The specially developed ALPINA sport exhaust system is a stainless- steel wonder. Providing both visual and auditory delight, it is designed to reduce backpressure, and features the bold, natural sound of a powerful V8 engine. The driver can influence the sound by switching between COMFORT and SPORT mode, which controls the active exhaust flaps.

• Fascinating dynamics, superior driving experience: The BMW ALPINA B8’s chassis and suspension set-up is harmoniously balanced, combining superior long-distance travel comfort with precise handling characteristics. The adaptive dampers provide for a wide range of driving experiences, ranging from COMFORT+ to SPORT+.

• Precision design: The B8 Gran Coupι’s appearance is distinguished by elegant lines that masterfully emphasize the vehicle’s flowing silhouette. The athletic character is further emphasized by the ALPINA aerodynamic components. The ALPINA CLASSIC 21-inch forged wheels with their minimalistic 20 spoke design are an unmistakable, exclusive ALPINA identifier.

• Look, touch, and feel: The interior design reflects the luxurious comfort of the BMW ALPINA B8 in every detail. High-quality materials, an extensive range of standard equipment and exclusive ALPINA details contribute to an exquisite interior.

I still have a soft spot for the gorgeous B6 Gran Coupe but this looks great. As always, Alpina Green and their Multi-Spoke Wheels make a great combo. Hopefully they introduce a new interior color combo as well.

B6 will forever be a grail in my eyes. This serves well as a modern evolution of that. Hope they'll leave the option to remove the ACC sensor off to give it a cleaner look.

Take off that dumb stuck on trunk lip "spoiler" and it's pretty good looking.

That interior color is what the M3 needs instead of that horrid orange.

Car looks great, but I think I'd rather have an LC500.

This looks really good. Especially that rear diffuser. But this car is way way too big for me to ever have interest in buying. I'll admire from afar.

For me, the 8er is easily the best vehicle in BMW's line up. Bar none. The Alpina B8 is just the cherry ilon top for the 8er line up.

8 GC is the best looking car in the entire BMW lineup. Better get one before the funky ugly grill makes way to this car.

Agreed. Ignoring the price for a moment, fans of Alpina (price insensitive consumers) will undoubtedly buy it - and quickly.

Better than M8?
Yes but largely due to exclusivity. Performance is more/less the same with regards to output, maybe M8 can pull more G's. So overall, yes I will easily take a B8 over a M8 if I had the money and not think twice.

200+ mph top speed?

That's a super exclusive club.
