Alpina continues to bet on diesel-powered sports vehicles. The 2023 Alpina D4 S Gran Coupé has been introduced to the public. A vehicle based on the BMW 4 Series Gran Coupe that can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in less than 5 seconds owing to a powerful engine producing more than 350 horsepower.
These are certainly not favorable times for diesel. Numerous manufacturers are abandoning this fuel, which had a prominent role in Europe until very recently. However, there are still businesses that continue to rely on this fuel. Alpina is one of these companies that continues to bet on diesel sports cars despite all odds.
The 2023 Alpina D4 S Gran Coupé has been introduced to the public. A vehicle that utilizes the iconic BMW 4 Series Gran Coupé as its base and provides a variety of amenities that demonstrate diesel-powered engines are still a wonderful alternative. Especially from a performance and efficiency standpoint.
Alpina D4 S Gran Coupé 2023, an intriguing proposal
Under the hood of the new D4 S Gran Coupe is a well-known engine from the Alpina lineup. The main character is a 3.0-liter TwinPower Tube diesel engine with six-in-line cylinders. It generates 355 horsepower and 730 Nm of maximum torque. The fact that this engine is electrified using 48-volt light-hybrid technology (MHEV) is one of its most important characteristics.
The Alpina D3 S is another vehicle of the German automaker that already employs these mechanisms. The engine is paired with an eight-speed ZF automated transmission and four-wheel drive. The new D4 S Gran Coupé can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.8 seconds and achieve a peak speed of 270 km/h thanks to its engine.
The advantages are logically one step behind the performance of the existing B4 Gran Coupe. However, we must keep in mind that this model is powered by a 495-hp, 3.0 TwinPower Turbo gasoline engine. A block that can propel an object to 100 km/h in 3.7 seconds and 301 km/h. However, the diesel variant does report average fuel usage of 6.9 liters per 100 kilometers. A factor that may now be crucial.

The little rear spoiler is an additional feature to emphasize. In addition, there are two unique body colors, Alpina Blue and Alpina Green.
