refined performance reined performance the bmw alpina b3 s bi-turbo combines power, efficiency and comfort for effortless, everyday performance. its powerful, turbocharged straight-six cylinder petrol engine harmonises with the 8-speed sport-automatic transmission for smooth power delivery. the adaptive alpina sports suspension delivers sharp handling without compromising comfort. an optional all- wheel drive system based on the excellent bmw xdrive system offers maximum traction in challenging conditions while maintaining high levels of agility and neutral handling. functional aerodynamic components together with trademark 20” alpina classic wheels and a stainless steel exhaust system with two elliptical twin tailpipes accentuate the b3 s bi-turbo‘s elegant presence on the road. new alpina classic 20” forged wheels with revised, minimalistic design. a reduction in unsprung mass results in even sharper handling and precise steering and also leads to enhanced comfort. accelerating from 0 - 100 km/h in just 4.3 seconds the b3 s bi-turbo saloon can reach a top speed of 306 km/h. with a combined fuel consumption measured to ece norm of just 7.9 l/100 km and 180 g/km co2 the high- tech drivetrain‘s efficiency is amongst the best!
fascinating power fascinating power the 3.0 liter straight-six cylinder engine with high- precision direct injection, valvetronic and bi-turbo charging delivers 324 kw (440 hp) between 5500 rpm and 6250 rpm and a maximum torque of 660 nm at only 3000 rpm. impressive 600 nm are available across an wide band between 2000 rpm and 5000 rpm. to achieve the b3 s bi-turbo’s characteristic, torque driven and spontaneous power delivery in combination with top-end performance requires a combination of high-tech features in a clever engine package. two alpina specific turbochargers provide excellent response and pick-up due to their lower mass inertia compared to a single, larger turbocharger while generating sufficient boost and through-put for a high power output. always-on power delivery is aided by an electronically controlled bypass valve system. alpina specific ngk spark plugs and a high-strength forged steel crankshaft guarantee long-lasting stability. a high- performance cooling system with a large volume inter- cooler and additional external engine oil and water coolers ensure thermal stability in all conditions. the glorious sound of the exhaust system is controlled by an intelligent exhaust valve. this offers the driver the possibility to influence the sound experience via the drive performance control and facilitates the balancing act between emotional soundtrack and long-distance cruising comfort. performance and torque diagram bmw alpina b3 s biturbo bmw alpina b3 s biturbo 324 kw (440 hp) at 5500-6250 rpm 660 nm at 3000-4500 rpm bmw alpina b3 biturbo 301 kw (410 hp) at 5500-6250 rpm 600 nm bei 3000-4000 rpm ) w k ( g e t t u p u o r e w o p 340 320 300 280 260 240 220 200 180 160 140 120 100 80 60 40 25 750 700 650 600 550 500 450 400 350 ) m n ( g e e u q r o t 300 1000 2000 3000 4000 5000 6000 7000 engine (rpm)

power, efficency and... power, efficency and... 8-speed advanced sport automatic the transmission with switch-tronic is perfectly tailored to the power and torque output of the bmw alpina b3 s bi-turbo. a special coding of the transmission software means that different shift modes offer either very comfortable or extremely dynamic gear changes. the automatic (a) shift mode changes gears swiftly and smoothly with no noticeable inter- ruption to the transmission of power – effortless, relaxed and fuel efficient cruising is a pleasure. the sport (s) shift mode is more dynamic, individual gears are held for longer and the shift times are significantly faster.
comfort with acoustic enjoyment comfort with acoustic enjoyment when using the manual (m) shift mode the driver takes full control of each gear change by using the switch-tronic buttons on the back of the steering wheel to shift up or down as required. using the drive performance control to select the bmw eco pro mode activates defensive transmission and accelerator parameters, which in conjunction with other bmw efficient dynamics functions such as automatic start-stop and sailing make a considerable contribution to reducing fuel consumption.
sharp handling sharp handling the suspension set-up of the b3 s bi-turbo provides great ride-quality and comfort while simultaneously offering sharp and dynamic handling. the adaptive alpina sport suspension features electronically adjustable dampers in collaboration with performance springs and stabilisers. the system allows the driver to use the drive performance control (eco pro, comfort, sport, sport+) to select the suspension setting and driving dynamics to match his mood. the 20” alpina classic wheels with michelin pilot sport 4 s tyres, a strut brace and subtle adjustments to camber and toe-in are responsible for the neutral and predictable handling that is typical of all bmw alpina automobiles. the bmw variable sports steering provides excellent steering stability at high speeds while the required steering input when manoeuvring and parking are reduced by almost half. the high performance brake system with 370 mm discs at the front and 345 mm discs at the rear features blue aluminium brake callipers with alpina lettering. performance brake pads ensure high fading stability and optimal pedal feedback.
exclusive heritage exclusive heritage fine materials and a comprehensive level of standard equipment including sport seats, climate control, cruise control and park distance control make the interior a place of well-being. unique but discreet alpina design elements include door sills, floor mats, emblems in the seatbacks, a blue instrumentation with red needles and an exclusive production plaque featuring the vehicle build number. like every bmw alpina, the b3 s bi-turbo’s sport leather steering wheel is hand-finished using the finest lavalina leather. virtually no limits are placed on the individual design of a bmw alpina. from the paintwork to the interior trim and the colour of the upholstery – everything offered by the extensive bmw and alpina optional and bespoke equipment range is available.
