Would You Choose The New Alpina D3 Bi-Turbo Over The BMW M3?

It’s easily better than the standard 3-Series.

Alpina is knownfor taking standard BMWs and turning them into luxurious, powerful beasts. Withthe BMW 3-Series’ recent makeover, Alpina went to work on the diesel-powered sedanand made the D3 Bi-Turbo better looking. The sedan receives a new frontspoiler, new LED headlights, a chrome BMW kidney grille, a refreshed rear apronwith two twin tailpipes as well as new LED taillights. Alpina also worked itsmagic on the inside with high-quality materials, minor design changes and newsurface elements.

Moreimportantly, Alpina hasn’t touched the twin-turbocharged 3-liter straightengine, which produces 345 hp and 516 lb-ft of torque. These amazing figuresallow the D3 Bi-Turbo sedan to get to 62 mph in 4.6 seconds and onto a topspeed of 171 mph. These impressive numbers also carry over to the D3 Bi-TurboWagon, which has a slightly slower top speed at 170 mph. The D3 Bi-Turbo Wagon canalso come with xDrive (BMWs’s all-wheel drive system) that allows the vehicleto sprint to 62 mph in a scant 4.5 seconds. The latest iteration of the AlpinaD3 Bi-Turbo comes in at roughly $73,700, so the cost for the newest model will mostlikely hover around the same price.
