as part of the IAA, we are pleased to introduce you the new BMW ALPINA B3 Touring. The new model’s avant-garde character is reflected in a progressive design language with sharp lines – both inside and out. Advancements in suspension and chassis technology in combination with state-of-the-art engine and transmission technology translate into driving performance on a whole new level.
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 BMW xDrive based intelligent all-wheel drive system fully variably distributes torque as required between the front and rear wheels. Maximum traction for dynamic cornering is ensured by the electronically controlled rear axle limited-slip differential. Further developed in cooperation with ZF, the advanced 8-Speed Sport-Automatic Transmission ensures faster response and quicker shift times, meaning that the impressive power is delivered effortlessly and efficiently at all times.
The new BMW ALPINA B3 Touring can reach a top speed of over 300 km/h, making it one of the fastest of its kind.
Customers may choose between an entirely new ALPINA DYNAMIC 19” wheelset featuring a 5×4 multispoke design or an optional ALPINA CLASSIC 20” forged wheelset with a traditional, minimalistic 20 spoke design, which also sees the reintroduction of the trademark lockable wheel hub cover.
State-of-the-art exhaust gas treatment technology, in the form of 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 the new and more realistic WLTP measuring cycle (Worldwide Harmonized Light-Duty Vehicles Test Procedure) is 11.1 l/100 km with CO2 emissions of 252 g/km*.
The new BMW ALPINA B3 Touring is available to order from the 1st quarter of 2020 with deliveries commencing from mid 2020 at the earliest. The model is only available with all-wheel drive.
