BMW has a very close relationship with Alpina, even offering the latter's special models through its own dealers and with full warranty. At least for now, the only Alpina model available through official channels in North America is the 7-Series-based B7 flagship, even though the German specialty brand has its own proposal for most BMW models.
With a stunning 410 HP output coming from a 3.0-liter straight 6-cylinder N55 turbocharge engine, the third-generation B3 Alpina has no less than 110 HP over the standard BMW 335i.
Onder de kap zou BMW's drieliter zes-in-lijn schuilen met allicht meer dan 400 pk en 540 Nm. Het maximaal vermogen zou beschikbaar zijn tussen 5.500 en 7.000 tpm, de koppelcurve is maximaal vanaf 1.300 tpm. Dat zijn geschatte cijfers, officieel werd er nog niets bekend gemaakt.
The F30 B3 will be powered by a twin turbocharged inline six-cylinder engine, based on the current N55 twin-scroll single turbo giving out 420 horses; that’s way higher than the 3-Series F30 which offers 258hp from its ultimate trim. It will be offered in automatic transmission only and since Alpinas are traditionally top speed unlimited we should expect up to 300km/h from this one.
