BMW ALPINA D3 Bi-Turbo Is World’s Fastest Production Diesel Car And Yet Economical: UK Pricing Inside
ALPINA is a renowned automobile manufacturing company based in Germany and for many years they have been developing their own cars, based on BMW cars. While many would consider ALPINA as a performance specialist, having a strong integration into BMW’s production lines gets ALPINA be recognized as an automobile manufacturer.
Recently the manufacturer has launched its latest generation of ultra-high-performance diesel saloons and estates and the most interesting of the lot is new D3 Bi-Turbo. The car is available in both saloon and estate form and offers astonishing performance along with impressive fuel efficiency. Under the hood of the D3 Bi-Turbo is a 3.0 litre, 6 cylinder, in-line engine that puts out 350 bhp of power and a whopping 700 Nm of torque. The figures are good enough to sprint the car from 0 to 62 mph in just 4.6 seconds, making it the fastest production diesel car, and offer a top speed of 173 mph. In spite of these amazing torque and power figures, the D3 Bi-Turbo delivers a combined cycle fuel economy of 53.2 mpg and CO2emissions of just 139 g/km.
“What makes these figures even more remarkable is that the D3 Bi-Turbo is also a luxury car that delivers its world-beating performance alongside uncompromising comfort and refinement,” comments Matthew Stripling, Sales Manager at ALPINA GB. “The new six cylinder D3 has a wonderful bespoke feel that touches all the senses to make every journey a pleasure, whether commuting to work or powering through the mountains.”
In the D3 Bi-Turbo you not only get ultra high performance with fuel economy but also a host of luxury features one cannot overlook. Standard equipment list includes an eight-speed automatic gearbox, Adaptive M Sport Suspension, leather upholstery, electrically adjustable heated sports seats, climate control, luxury carpet overmats, ALPINA logos on the seat backs and door sills, Bi-Xenon headlights, hand-stitched Lavalina leather covered steering wheel and more. On the exterior, the enhancements are rather subtle and you get an improved aerodynamic profile and 19” ALPINA alloy wheels. Additionally, there are limitless personalisation options ranging from a custom paint work to hand stitched full leather interior.
