THE NEW BMW ALPINA XD3 BITURBO
Almost exactly one year ago at the Geneva Motor Show in 2013 ALPINA caught many by surprise with the launch of a so-called Sports Activity Vehicle, namely the XD3 Bi-Turbo based on the BMW X3. As the founder of the segment, BMW has delivered over a million units of this successful model within the past ten years. Since its launch the XD3 has proven just as popular albeit in typical ALPINA manner limited to an exclusive volume of 170 units.
It’s the recipe of the XD3 Bi-Turbo which is also its guarantor for on-going popularity. Pairing excellent performance, traction and efficiency with SAV-typical properties such as a superior sitting position, representative form-factor, high everyday functionality and practical exterior dimensions. Not to mention that the potent drivetrain of the XD3 Bi-Turbo with 257 kW (350 hp) and 700 Nm give it class-leading performance, accelerating it from 0 - 100 km/h in just 4.9 seconds and on to a top speed of 251 km/h. Together with exemplary fuel economy (6.6 l/100 km / 174 g/km CO2 combined consumption according to ECE norm) and typical ALPINA appearance, the result is a very coherent package that is hard to beat.
