First model to go on sale will be the B4 Bi-Turbo Coupe.

Alpina will start selling vehicles in Australia for the first time in history. BMW’s performance arm will be presented in selected major metropolitan areas in the country and these will be announced later in 2016.

The first Alpina cars to arrive in Australia will be eight B4 Bi-Turbo Coupes which has already undergone ADR compliance and homologation for sale in Australia. These first examples will be used mainly for demonstrational purposes for dealers and future customers.

Next, the coupe will be joined by the Alpina B4 Bi-Turbo Convertible, and B3 Bi-Turbo Sedan and Touring models that are currently undergoing ADR compliance. One of each will be available for customers to test-drive in November.

“Alpina has a long history of producing tailored cars based on BMW models and we welcome their presence in the Australian market,” chief executive officer of BMW Group Australia Marc Werner commented.

It remains to be seen whether Australian Alpina fans will receive the flagship B7 Bi-Turbo that was revealed earlier this year. The high-performance sedan is going on sale in the United States in September and will also reach the U.K. market in “very small numbers.”
