BMW ALPINA D3 S

Powertrain

Impressive output – exemplary efficiency

The new BMW ALPINA D3 S surprises with an engine character that is dominated by its eager willingness to rev up to the red-line, which is rather untypical for a diesel. Furthermore, ALPINA for the first time adopts the innovative BMW mild hybrid technology which features a 48-volt starter generator for immediate throttle response and increased efficiency to effortlessly offer long driving ranges in combination with a high performance output.

The straight-six 3.0 litre engine with Bi-Turbo charging and ALPINA high-performance cooling system offers a maximum output of 261 kW (355 hp). The maximum torque of 730 Nm (538 lbs-ft) is available between 1750 and 2750 rpm for immediate power delivery in every driving situation. The BMW ALPINA D3 S Saloon accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in just 4.6 seconds (Touring in 4.8 seconds) and completes the sprint to 200 km/h in 17.5 seconds (Touring in 18.3 seconds), accompanied by a distinct and lively engine soundtrack. The maximum speed is 273 km/h (Touring 270 km/h).*

*In combination with ALPINA CLASSIC 20" wheel / tyre combination reduced top speed by approximately 3 km/h.

BMW mild hybrid technology

The mild hybrid technology adopted from BMW not only enhances the efficiency of the high-performance diesel engine but also its dynamic response. Recuperated energy is stored in a 48-volt battery and supplied as additional power by a belt-driven 48-volt starter generator. With electrical power of up to 8 kW (11 hp) instantly available, engine and throttle response are unparalleled, especially at low engine speeds. At constant speeds, the engine can operate in an optimised load range thanks to the support of the electrical system, further improving efficiency.

Performance enhancing all-wheel drive (xDrive)

The all-wheel drive system is based on the intelligent BMW xDrive system, which fully variably distributes torque as required between the front and rear axle. The ALPINA specific, situational traction-optimised adjustment of the torque distribution is predominantly rear-wheel-biased to match the sportive character of the BMW ALPINA D3 S.
