BMW ALPINA XD3 and BMW ALPINA XD4

Exterior Design

Sportive and assertive, yet led by understatement, the design of the BMW ALPINA XD3 is bold and dynamic yet subtle. Well-proportioned and aided by short overhangs the BMW ALPINA XD3 is taut and muscular in appearance. Specific ALPINA ingredients emphasise the performance potential that slumbers within – most markedly the large openings in the front apron for the high performance cooling system and the two elliptical twin tailpipes at the rear. The design of the BMW ALPINA XD3 is strongly influenced by the unique design of the beautiful new lightweight forged ALPINA CLASSIC 22” optional wheels and their technical and minimalistic design.

The new BMW ALPINA XD4 is an eye catcher in every respect. It combines the popular characteristics of a sport utility vehicle with the sleek and elegant silhouette of a coupé. The sloping roofline transitions seamlessly into a rear spoiler which is positioned above prominent L-shaped rear lights and a rear diffusor. The design of the aerodynamic components blends form and function – reducing uplift to almost zero and minimising aerodynamic inefficiencies for maximum driving stability at all speeds. The design of the BMW ALPINA XD4 is strongly influenced by the unique design of the beautiful new lightweight forged ALPINA CLASSIC 22” optional wheels and their technical and minimalistic design.

In combination with ALPINA CLASSIC 22“ forged wheels reduced top speed by approximately 5 km/h.

 

 

Unmistakable ALPINA

The world famous decorative stripes, officially known as the ALPINA Deco-Set, are more than a homage to the 70s and 80s, they are an indispensable part of the ALPINA heritage. The Deco-Set set has a pinstripe-like and very fine horizontal design and can be optionally applied to the vehicle front and sides in either Silver or Gold.

A large number of BMW paint finishes are also available for the new BMW ALPINA XD3 and BMW ALPINA XD4.

A very special highlight: The new, free-floating ALPINA lettering in the front spoiler. Like no other element it combines an unmistakeable look with technical finesse. The free-standing design allows the ALPINA engineers to integrate an additional air inlet into the front apron. This achieves the optimal inflow of the central outsourced water cooler. The lettering is available in Silver, Gold or Black ‘high-gloss’.
