BMW ALPINA B3

Powertrain

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 3,000 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.

The new BMW ALPINA B3 Touring can reach a top speed of over 300 km/h, making it the fastest of its kind. 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.

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

The all-wheel drive of the new BMW ALPINA B3 Touring 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.*

*Preliminary Data. Stated fuel consumption and CO2 emissions are measured pursuant to EU Regulation 715/2007 in its applicable version.


New test procedure WLTP

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.

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/.
