Following an early preview a few days ago, Alpina releases new images of the Geneva-bound B3 bi-turbo and confirms its technical specs. The car boasts lots of bold numbers, but the boldest of them all is the 190 mph (306 km/h) top speed that makes it faster than the next M3 – because it will be limited to 155 mph.
Alpina B3 is based on the BMW 3-Series F30 sedan and powered by an Alpina-tuned version of the 3.0 liter turbocharged in-line six-cylinder engine. It sends its output of 410 horsepower (310 kW) and 598Nm (442 lb-ft) of torque to the rear wheels via a ZF 8-speed automatic transmission.
On its way to a top speed of 190 mph, the B3 does the 0 to 62 mph (100 km/h) run in 4.2 seconds, while averaging 7.6 liters / 100 km (30.95 mpg). CO2 emission figure is 177 g/km.
An exterior kit with discreetly designed spoilers and wheels and a classic Alpina interior are also part of the B3 package.
