Smooth and effortless power delivery
The latest generation petrol direct-injection straight-six 3.0 litre engine with re-engineered Bi-Turbo charging and a performance-optimised cooling system delivers thrilling power and performance. The maximum torque of 700 Nm is already available from 2,500 rpm which combined with 340 kW (462 hp) of output provides impressive driving performance. The power delivery is smooth and linear, the performance experience is direct and maintained over the entire rpm range.
With a top speed of 303 km/h (Saloon) respectively 300 km/h (Touring), the new BMW ALPINA B3 is one of the fastest of its kind. Accelerating from 0 to 100 km/h takes just 3.8 seconds (Touring 3.9 seconds). The Launch Control function, allowing the driver to accelerate with optimum traction and maximum dynamics from a standstill, has been designed for the first time for a sprint from 0 to 200 km/h, which is completed in 13.4 seconds (Touring 13.9 seconds).
The Bi-Turbo engine’s remarkable power and torque characteristics are the result of several optimisations in the details: Flow-optimised turbine housings, optimised cross-sections in the air intake system and a large air intake housing ensure excellent and torquey responsiveness. The ALPINA specific cooling system ensures the thermal stability of the high-performance engine even under highest loads.
