The BMW ALPINA B3 BITURBO
The foundation that Burkard Bovensiepen laid in the 1960s in the form of a performance-enhanced BMW 1500, has since developed into a permanent fixture in the luxury sports car segment. What were then the first technologically and qualitatively relevant products marketed by ALPINA, namely four-cylinder petrol engines with Weber dual carburetors in the BMW Neue Klasse, are now in modern form high-tech automobiles. Equipped from the outset with the best possible genes by BMW, they currently represent the ultimate in performance, comfort, ‘driving culture’ and efficiency.
The BMW ALPINA B3 Bi-Turbo combines these characteristics like no other automobile before it. The straight-six 3.0 litre engine equipped with two turbochargers delivers 301kW (410hp) and a maximum torque of 600Nm. The adaptive ALPINA sport suspension system and the 8-Speed Sport-Automatic transmission with ALPINA SWITCH-TRONIC deliver maximum comfort and impressive dynamics. Functional aerodynamics combine well with the trademark 20” ALPINA CLASSIC wheels and together with two elliptical double tailpipes create an elegant appearance. The BMW ALPINA B3 Bi-Turbo accelerates from 0 to 100km/h (0 - 62mph) in just 4.2 seconds, reaching a top speed of 305km/h (190mph). When driven moderately, it consumes significantly less than 10 litres of Super plus (98 RON) per 100km and achieves a class-leading combined fuel consumption measured to ECE norm of just 7.6l/100km and 177g/km CO2 (Saloon RWD).
These extraordinary performance figures are also available for friends of all-wheel drive. The new BMW ALPINA B3 Bi-Turbo Allrad utilises the proven possibilities of the excellent BMW xDrive system and offers unparalleled levels of traction and driving dynamics.
