BMW ALPINA B3

Powertrain

Smooth and effortless power delivery

The latest generation petrol direct-injection straight-six 3.0 litre engine with re-engineered Bi-Turbo charging and a performance-optimised cooling system delivers thrilling power and performance. The maximum torque of 700 Nm is already available from 2,500 rpm which combined with 340 kW (462 hp) of output provides impressive driving performance. The power delivery is smooth and linear, the performance experience is direct and maintained over the entire rpm range.

With a top speed of 303 km/h (Saloon) respectively 300 km/h (Touring), the new BMW ALPINA B3 is one of the fastest of its kind. Accelerating from 0 to 100 km/h takes just 3.8 seconds (Touring 3.9 seconds). The Launch Control function, allowing the driver to accelerate with optimum traction and maximum dynamics from a standstill, has been designed for the first time for a sprint from 0 to 200 km/h, which is completed in 13.4 seconds (Touring 13.9 seconds).

The Bi-Turbo engine’s remarkable power and torque characteristics are the result of several optimisations in the details: Flow-optimised turbine housings, optimised cross-sections in the air intake system and a large air intake housing ensure excellent and torquey responsiveness. The ALPINA specific cooling system ensures the thermal stability of the high-performance engine even under highest loads.

Performance enhancing all-wheel drive (xDrive)

The all-wheel drive of the new BMW ALPINA B3 is based on the BMW xDrive system, which fully variably distributes torque as required between the front and rear wheels. Depending on what the Driving Experience Control is set to (COMFORT+, COMFORT, SPORT, SPORT+), the ALPINA specific, situational traction-optimised adjustment of the torque distribution is predominantly rear-biased.

ALPINA sport exhaust system

The ALPINA stainless steel exhaust system reduces the exhaust back pressure to a minimum. Exhaust valves allow the driver to influence the sound experience: discreetly restrained in COMFORT mode or noticeably more dynamic in SPORT mode. Two twin tailpipes are beautifully integrated into the contours of the ALPINA rear apron.

State-of-the-art exhaust gas treatment technology with petrol particulate filters is in line with ALPINA’s philosophy of achieving the best possible interplay of performance, consumption and emission values. Fuel consumption measured according to ECE norm 9.8 l/100 km and 224 g/km CO2.*
