Like its generic sibling, sportsedan Alpina is equipped with intelligent all-wheel drive system BMW xDrive, which is as necessary distributes torque between the two axles. But with the passage of high-speed corners – that is the most that neither is a native element of these vehicles – maximum traction provides electronics that controls a limited-slip differential, while the need for comfort in extreme driving is responsible recalibrated suspension with three driving modes: Comfort+, Comfort and Sport. In addition, in Sport+ can be chosen different settings of the steering, torque distribution and transmission.
To improve stability on the road called aerodynamic body kit, the diffuser, which displayed two tailpipes sports exhaust system and 20-inch forged wheels (19-inch for the winter), put in the “right” Pirelli rubber. As for the color, then there are two exclusive variant Alpina Metallic blue and green.
