Get excited. Discover the new BMW ALPINA B3 Saloon! WWW.ALPINA.DE/B3 All technical data is preliminary data. Driving performance data currently not available. The new BMW ALPINA B3 Saloon‘s avant-garde character is reflected in its progressive design language and sharp lines. Elegant ALPINA CLASSIC 20’’ forged wheels, a stainless steel exhaust system featuring two twin tailpipes, and ALPINA aero- dynamic elements lend the BMW ALPINA B3 Saloon its distinctive and powerful appearance. The interior impresses with detailed craftsmanship and finest materials. The full-colour ALPINA digital instrument cluster works in conjunction with the central touch display with typical BMW driver orientation.
The ALPINA sports suspension combines sport springs and stiff anti-roll bars to provide superior road holding, balanced handling and pronounced agility. The programming of the electronically controlled dampers bears the unmistakable signature of ALPINA engineers. The driver can choose from three modes COMFORT+, COMFORT and SPORT – for a wide range of driving experiences, ranging from pronounced ride comfort to focussed athleticism. NO BOUNDARIES MAXIMUM AGILITY AND TRACTION The BMW xDrive based intelligent all-wheel drive system fully variably distributes torque between the front and rear axle for excellent traction, highest safety standards and maximum performance in every situation. An optional high-performance brake system with light-weight drilled brake discs and highly heat-resistant brake pads offers even more direct pedal feedback and thermodynamic reserves. The electronically controlled rear axle limited-slip differential increases driving dynamics particularly when cornering with high lateral loads.
ALPINA IDENTITY road holding, balanced handling and precision Superior steering are also the result of an intelligent wheel and tyre choice. Customers may choose between an entirely new ALPINA DYNAMIC 19” wheelset featuring a 5x4 multispoke design or an optional ALPINA CLASSIC 20” forged wheelset with a traditional, minimalistic 20 spoke design which also sees the reintroduction of the trademark lockable wheel hub cover. Specifically developed by Pirelli tyre experts for the BMW ALPINA B3 Saloon, the new Pirelli P Zero marked ALP utilises ultra-high-performance compounds to deliver highest grip levels in all situations.
PROGRESSIVE TRADITION The exterior design of the new BMW ALPINA B3 Saloon is more progressive than ever before. The ALPINA design and aerodynamic elements accentuate the new BMW 3 Series Saloon‘s clean and precise design language, adding more presence and a purposeful appearance. The ALPINA sport exhaust system with two twin tailpipes is beautifully integrated into the contours of the rear apron. Exhaust valves allow the driver to influence the sound experience: discreetly restrained in COMFORT mode or noticeably more dynamic in SPORT mode.
SUPERIOR POWER DELIVERY IMPRESSIVE RESPONSIVENESS With an output of 340 kW (462 hp) between 5,000 and 7,000 rpm the straight-six 3.0 litre Bi-Turbo engine delivers impressive driving performance. The maximum torque of 700 Nm is already available from 3,000 rpm onwards which in combination with the smooth 8-Speed Sport-Automatic Transmission provides plenty of punch for effortless mid-range acceleration. The new BMW ALPINA B3 Saloon can reach a top speed of over 300 km/h. A launch control function allows the driver to accelerate with optimum traction and maximum dynamics from 0 to 200 km/h – a breath taking experience.

TECHNICAL DATA BMW ALPINA B3 SALOON This is a translation of the original German brochure which fulfils the requirements of German law. All technical data in this brochure apply to the German market, additional international units of measure shown in the technical data for the purposes of information only. Further information on specific fuel consumption and CO2 emissions of new passenger cars is provided by the ‚Leitfaden über den Kraftstoffverbrauch, die CO2-Emissionen und den Stromverbrauch neuer Personenkraftwagen‘ which can be obtained free of charge at all points of sale and from the Deutsche Automobil Treuhand GmbH (DAT) or online https://www.dat.de/co2/. 1 2 3 4 Stated fuel consumption and CO2 emissions are measured pursuant to EU Regulation 715/2007 in its applicable version. From 1st of September 2018 the Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP) has replaced the New European Driving Cycle (NEDC). Regardless of the applied test procedure, it is currently still mandatory to state fuel consumption and CO2 emissions according to NEDC, hence stated values are determined based on the WLTP test procedure and are converted to NEDC for comparison purposes. Depending on your country, vehicle related taxes or other duties may be based on fuel consumption and CO2 emissions data which differs from that stated here. The provision of additional fuel consumption and CO2 emissions as determined according to WLTP is currently voluntary until their provision becomes mandatory by law. The figures quoted includes a 90 % tank filling, 68 kg for the driver an 7 kg for luggage. Unladen weight applies to vehicles with standard equipment. Optional equipment may increase this figure.
