Alpina is one of the most successful BMW tuners. Their products are well outspoken giving more emphasis on luxury and higher torque. And barely a year after the launch of the BMW 3-Series F30, they are launching their own version of the 3-Series “B3 BiTurbo” to debut at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show.
The F30 B3 will be powered by a twin turbocharged inline six-cylinder engine, based on the current N55 twin-scroll single turbo giving out 420 horses; that’s way higher than the 3-Series F30 which offers 258hp from its ultimate trim. It will be offered in automatic transmission only and since Alpinas are traditionally top speed unlimited we should expect up to 300km/h from this one.
It may not come to the North American market if they keep their tradition going in fact it’s only the Alpina B7 that is currently sold in the US, maybe with an importer who would file the necessary paperwork one may get one to the US but still a lot of modification could possibly be necessary in order to register it.
