The famous studio Alpina introduced a new model B3, built on the basis of the BMW 3-Series. The car has a special finish, a new interior and a 455-horsepower engine. He was already nicknamed Anti-M3.

The new Alpina B3 is already available in some European countries. This is a pioneer, truly powerful, and built on the meringue of the “charged” versions of the 3-Series G20. The model is presented in the sedan and station wagon with a cost of $ 90,000 and $ 920,000, respectively.

 Alpina B3 is aggregated by the forced 3.0-liter in-line six-cylinder engine from BMW. Thanks to modifications and two turbines, he is able to develop up to 462 horsepower and 700 Nm of torque. In the list of alterations, Alpina housings for turbochargers with airflow optimization and a redesigned cooling system can be noted.

 Paired with the engine, an eight-speed automatic transmission from ZF operates. It is equipped with a special control unit with firmware from Alpina, which provides better dynamics and smooth switching. The transmission received several gearshift modes: from comfort to supersport. The drive is full. Another “trick” was the rear differential with an increased coefficient of friction.

The new Alpina B3 can accelerate to 100 km/h in 3.8 seconds, acceleration to 200 km / h takes only 13.4 seconds, and the maximum speed is limited to 300 km / h.

Earlier, spy photos from Alpina’s B5 Touring tests got to the Network. The pictures show a test prototype in the station wagon body under the BMW logo and with camouflaged front and rear parts.
