Alpina tweaked BMW 3-Series ready for action

Alpina tweaked BMW 3-Series ready for action

The twin-turbo, 400-horsepower Alpina B3S has just been unleashed on the UK market.

With a burly 540Nm of torque to get it off the line the high-spec Bimmer will rocket from 0-to-100kph in just 4.7 seconds. That might not sound too impressive for an Alpina, but fuel economy is excellent at 8.1l/100km on the combined cycle. The B3S is readily identified by a redesigned front spoiler and a new rear diffuser which encloses the tailpipes, reducing lift and helping engine cooling. The Alpina Classic alloy wheels get the new design treatment seen on the latest B7.

The Alpina B3S is offered with a six-speed auto transmission in Saloon, Touring, Coupe and Convertible, with deliveries beginning in Europe this July.
