New Alpina B3 S Bi Turbo Boasts 400hp And Reduced Emissions - Web Exclusive

May 20, 2010

Following its recent world debut at the Geneva Motor Show, the new ALPINA B3 S Bi-Turbo is now available in the UK. Higher levels of output and efficiency make the model's unique edge in this rarefied market sector even sharper.

The new B3 S reflects the ALPINA ethos of ultra high performance combined with environmental consciousness. The 3 litre straight six now yields an extraordinary 400hp at 6000 rpm and massive torque – 540 Nm at 4500 rpm. In Coupe form this delivers 0-62 in 4.7 seconds and 186 mph, yet economy is improved (29.1 mpg combined) and CO2 emissions lowered to 224 g/km.

The B3S is readily identified by a redesigned front spoiler and a new rear diffuser which encloses the tailpipes, reducing lift and ensuring optimum engine cooling. The ALPINA Classic alloy wheels get the new design treatment seen on the latest B7.

With switchable six-speed automatic transmission in Saloon, Touring, Coupe and Convertible forms, the B3 S stays faithful to another ALPINA manufacturing edict - that the sporting nature of its cars should not compromise luxury, comfort and everyday usability.

First deliveries of the B3 S Bi-Turbo start in July with availability through Sytner, UK concessionaires for ALPINA.

ALPINA GB, part of the Sytner Group, has been the sole UK importer for ALPINA since 1983. ALPINA has worked closely with BMW since 1961, with shared warranty coverage since 1964. ALPINA were registered as an automobile manufacturer to ISO standards in 1983.
