Alpina B8 Gran Coupe Hits 203 MPH Top Speed On Autobahn With Ease

The 2022 Alpina B8 Gran Coupe lacks the coveted M badges, but it is no slouch. It has plenty of power and other upgrades that set it apart from its BMW siblings as a formidable performance machine. A new AutoTop NL video demonstrates that power by taking the sedan to the German Autobahn for a high-speed run.

BMW’s 4.4-liter twin-turbocharged V8 engine powers the large luxury sedan. The engine generates 612 horsepower (456 kilowatts) and 590 pound-feet of torque (800 Newton-meters). The engine can propel the 2022 B8 to 60 miles per hour (100 kilometres per hour) in just 3.3 seconds. It has a top speed of 201 miles per hour (XXX kph).

The sedan has no trouble reaching triple-digit speeds, with the 124-mph (200-kph) mark passing in a flash. The Alpina flies past traffic and only has to slow down a few times for cars in the left lane, but they move out of the way quickly. The video also shows how compliant the car is at such high speeds.

However, Alpina added more than just badges and branding. Eibach springs, stiffer suspension mounts, reinforced front sway bars, and stiffer lower wishbone mounts were also installed by the BMW specialists. Alpina’s 20-spoke 21-inch wheels sit between the suspension and the ground. Four-piston Brembo brakes finished in blue by Alpina provide stopping power.

The B8 distinguishes itself from the 8 Series Gran Coupe with new front and rear fascias that give the sedan a distinct sporty flavour. The car has larger air intakes in the front and Alpina branding. The redesigned rear end features a lip spoiler and Alpina’s oval exhaust tips. The tuner upgrades the interior with wood trim, branded door sills, badging, and Alcantara.

The 2023 Alpina B8 Gran Coupe is now on the market in the United States, with a starting price of $144,900. The destination fee of $995 is not included in the price. It has a lot of power, but you won’t be able to experience it on public roads in the United States. Keep your antics on track.
