ALPINA B3 AHEAD of the BMW M3

Obviously, the 3-Series sedan from Alpina is the embodiment and development

Obviously, the 3-Series sedan from Alpina is the embodiment and development of the same approaches that were implemented in the previously shown new wagon B3 Touring. Although the production of the sedan starts only in the first quarter of 2020, so BMW with its M3 still has time to catch up and overtake the rival.

Specialists in genetic engineering from Alpina first of all, of course, dissected the "native" 3.0-liter 6-cylinder Biturbo, a pair of which was 8-dipazonnaya automatic transmission ZF. As a result, the engine was squeezed out 455 HP, developed in the range from 5,000 to 7,000 rpm, and 700 Nm of torque at 3,000 -4,250 rpm. And this allows "alpinosedan" to reach a maximum speed of 303 km / h, accelerating to 100 km / h in 3.8 seconds – which is 0.1 seconds faster than in the case of the B3 Touring.

Like its versatile counterpart, the Alpina sports sedan is equipped with BMW's intelligent xDrive all-wheel drive system, which distributes torque between the two axles as needed. And when passing high-speed turns – that is, in the most that neither is the native element of these cars-maximum traction is provided by electronics that control the differential of increased friction, while for proper comfort in extreme driving meets the reconfigured suspension with three driving modes: Comfort+, Comfort and Sport. In addition, various steering, torque distribution and gearbox settings can be selected in Sport+ mode.

Improve stability on the road is designed aerodynamic body kit, diffuser, which derived two exhaust pipes sports exhaust system and 20-inch forged wheels (or 19-inch for the winter), shod in the" right " tires Pirelli. As for the color, the choice offered two exclusive options Alpina Metallic-blue and green.

Inside the sedan, tuners were marked with name thresholds, a plate with an individual model number, a sports steering wheel with handmade Lavalina leather trim and metal emblems on the mats and seat backs. At the same time, the company's own leather workshop offers an almost unlimited choice of interior decoration options, giving the owner the opportunity to design it in full accordance with personal preferences.
