The brand new Alpina XD3 Biturbo

Alongside the stunning B3, Alpina has unveiled the XD3 Biturbo, their first ever take on the BMW X-Series. Based on the BMW X3, this one has seen the light of day back in March, in Geneva.

The soul of this Alpina Bimer is a straight-6, full aluminium 3.0-liter engine boosted by 2 powerful turbochargers, alongside variable turbine geometry and common-rail direct injection. The resulting output is a broad 350 HP (257 kW) at 4,000 RPM and maximum torque of 700 Nm (516 lb-ft) between 1,500 – 3,000 RPM.

Somewhat in contrast to all these figures, this masculine Alpina XD3 Biturbo manages to average just 6.8 l / 100 km (41.5 mpg US or 34.5 mpg UK), while the CO2 emissions are as low as 180 g/km. Designed specifically for this model and significantly aiding in everything we’ve mentioned so far, a ZF 8-speed automatic transmission was mated to the engine.

There are a lot more details we should mention now which this car boasts, but our time is limited. Therefore, we’ll revert to the electronically-adjustable dampers, custom exhaust manifold, stainless steel exhaust system with dual double-ended tailpipes, further interior trim and useful features like sports steering wheel with green/blue stitching, floor mats, gear indicator, digital speed display, door sills and last, but not the least, a set of 20-inch Alpina Classic wheels wrapped in Michelin Pilot Super Sport low-profile rubbers.
