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

/ Comments

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

Alpina is known for taking standard BMWs and turning them into luxurious, powerful beasts. With the BMW 3-Series' recent makeover, Alpina went to work on the diesel-powered sedan and made the D3 Bi-Turbo better looking. The sedan receives a new front spoiler, new LED headlights, a chrome BMW kidney grille, a refreshed rear apron with two twin tailpipes as well as new LED taillights. Alpina also worked its magic on the inside with high-quality materials, minor design changes and new surface elements.

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