BMW Alpina D3 Bi-Turbo to Debut at Frankfurt with 345hp / 516 lb-ft

Alpina has released the first details and pics of its 2014 Alpina D3 Bi-Turbo, which will join the B3 Bi-Turbo as the newest F3x based Alpina offering. The D3 is set to make its debut at the 2013 Frankfurt IAA show beginning next week.

For the 2014 D3, Alpina utilizes the same powerplant which powers the XD3 and D5 - an inline six-cylinder twin turbo motor. It outpouts 345 HP (257kw) and 516 lb-ft (700 Nm) torque. 0-62mph (100kmh) can be covered by the D3 in 4.6 seconds, with a top speed of 173 MPH (278kmh).

As for efficiency - the D3 will sip diesel fuel at a rate of 44.3 MPG U.S. (53.3 MPG UK / 5.3 Liters per 100km).

The D3 will come in both RWD and AWD models, as well as sedan and touring versions. Optional limited slip differential will also be available.

Stay tuned next week as we bring you more details of the D3 and coverage of all things Alpina and BMW from the 2013 Frankfurt IAA.
