World premiere at the 88th International Motor Show in Geneva: The new BMW Alpina XD3 builds on the great success of its predecessor, taking performance, driving dynamics and versatility to a new level.

Drivetrain based on the state-of-the-art BMW 3.0-liter straight-six engine with four turbochargers and common-rail high-pressure direct injection. It now delivers 285 kW (388 hp) over an impressively wide bandwidth ranging from 4000 to 5000 rpm and delivers a maximum torque of 770 Nm. Accelerating from 0 to 100 km/h in just 4.6 seconds and on to a top speed of 266 km/h means the new BMW Alpina XD3 is best-in-segment.

Performance oriented all-wheel drive transmits power to all four wheels. Based on the intelligent BMW xDrive system and featuring an Alpina specific torque distribution, it guarantees maximum traction, neutral driving dynamics and high levels of safety. The Driving Experience Control switch allows the driver to change between different vehicle set-ups at the push of a button – from Sport+ through to Comfort+.

Alpina sport suspension with electronically adjustable dampers together with an active rear limited slip differential ensures superior handling and dynamics without compromising ride comfort. The new ZF 8-Speed Sport-Automatic Transmission with Alpina Switch-Tronic harmonises perfectly with the powerful drivetrain, offering both a very comfortable and smooth or decidedly sporty and dynamic operation.

New lightweight forged Alpina Classic 22” wheels (optional) highlight the powerful and dynamic design of the new XD3. Trademark Alpina Classic 20” wheels with lockable wheel covers and concealed air valves come as standard.
