Alpina D3 BiTurbo Touring

Alpina D3 BiTurbo Touring

REVIEW

“What’s an Alpina?” – that’s the question a lot of people ask when presented with one in front of them. Well the short answer is, Alpina creates very special cars based on BMWs – think of them as a more sophisticated, more understated alternative to the BMW M-cars, but still just as brutally fast. This D3 BiTurbo Touring is a prime example of that – the 3.0 litre twin turbo six cylinder diesel engine is tuned to 347bhp (that’s more than the 340i in case you were wondering) but there’s also 700Nm of torque. And the small point that BMW don’t make a performance estate. There’s an 8spd ZF automatic gearbox and suspension tuned for a slightly comfier ride – but still firm enough to make the D3 a weapon on the twisty bits and the not inconsiderable matter of over 50mpg. There’s a unique Alpina body kit, their trademark ‘turbine’ wheels and even some wonderfully retro side graphics (thankfully optional). You can make your Alpina as classy or as lairy as you want it to be. They are a fantastic alternative to BMW’s sportiest offerings and rare too – we think they’re the hidden gems of the automotive world.
