Motor sport heritage limited edition based on the BMW ALPINA B3 S Bi-Turbo Coupé
ALPINA’s recent return to international motor sport peaked last year, with the drivers Alexandros Margaritis and Dino Lunardi winning the German GT Series, the 2011 ADAC GT Masters Championship, in the BMW ALPINA B6 GT3. With this achievement ALPINA purposefully demonstrates that despite a long absence from motor sports, cutting edge automotive know-how and technical expertise continues to be the foundation for the development of exclusive BMW ALPINA automobiles. Ideal circumstances to re-kindle the long-standing ALPINA tradition of creating ultra small series limited editions.
The BMW ALPINA B3 GT3 combines exceptional characteristics and technical features of the ALPINA B6 GT3 race car with classic design elements of iconic ALPINA automobiles of the past to the delight of ALPINA customers and enthusiasts worldwide. The alpina B3 GT3 is based on a E90 335i with the N54 engine which is beefed up a bit.
Strictly limited to 99 cars, the BMW ALPINA B3 GT3 will be available from spring 2012 at a price of approx. €90.000,- including 19% VAT (German specification).
The direct petrol injected N54 engine delivers a total power output of 408hp at 6000rpm and 540Nm of torque at 4500rpm. The Alpina B3 GT3 sprints from 0-62mph (0-100kmh) in 4.6 seconds and has a top speed of 192mph (309kmh), which the driver, Sport Auto’s test drive editor Christian Gebhardt demonstrates in this video:
