BMW Alpina D3 Bi-Turbo priced from £46,950

Alpina was registered as an automobile manufacturer to ISO standards in 1983 and has been working with BMW since 1961.

Based on the latest generation 3 Series, the D3 Bi-Turbo is the result of a two year development programme during which every aspect of the vehicle was analysed and refined to increase performance, comfort and style.

Alpina engineers enhanced the engine, gearbox, cooling system, body structure, wheels, tyres, aerodynamics, suspension and interior.

The fastest production diesel production car in the world packs 350 hp and 700m of torque, good for a 0-62mph in 4.6 seconds and a top speed of 173mph. Fuel economy is an impressive 53 mpg and CO2 emissions of just 139 g/km.

Exterior highlights include modest aerodynamic updates, four outlet exhaust with an ‘intelligent’ acoustic valve and 19-inch ALPINA alloy wheels.

The new BMW ALPINA D3 Bi-Turbo is now available in UK as a Saloon for £46,950 or as a Touring (estate) for £49,950.
