2019 Alpina XD3 will come with a quad-turbo and 384bhp. The new Alpina XD3 is a pumped-up version of the BMW’s new X3. The car is set to make its official debut at next week’s Geneva Motor Show.
Alpina, the firm was founded in 1965 by Burkard Bovensiepen, and it works closely with BMW in developing its vehicles. An automobile manufacturing company sells fewer than 100 cars annually in the UK.
The German brand has designed the XD3 with a deeper front bumper, new standard 20-inch wheels with suitably spindly spokes setup and 22-inch multi-spoke alloy wheels. European XD3 model is the most powerful version as it is powered by BMW’s quad-turbo 3.0-liter straight-six diesel engine, producing 286kW and 770Nm for a 4.6-second sprint to 100km/h. It offers 388hp and a humongous 567lb-ft (770Nm) of peak torque.
The less powerful engine produces power with the support from an eight-speed automatic transmission and Alpina’s reconfigured xDrive all-wheel-drive system. Additionally, there is an active rear limited-slip differential and adjustable dampers.
The manufacturers say, “An Alpina-developed torque distribution system guarantees maximum traction, neutral driving dynamics and high levels of safety.”
Alpina says, the car covers 0-62mph (100km/h) in 4.9 seconds and can achieve the top speed at 157mph (254km/h). Inside, you will find unique instruments and badging.
According to Alpina, this new XD3 will go on sale from the second quarter of the year and the company will reveal more detail information about the standard and optional equipment of the car. The shipping will start early next year.
