Alpina has released new details about the upcoming third generation of the B3 ahead of the car's unveiling set for March in Geneva.
The model is based on the BMW 3-Series (F30) sedan and features an improved 3.0-liter turbocharged engine producing 410 HP (310 kW) between 5,500 and 7,000 rpm. Connected to a new 8-speed automatic transmission from ZF, the performance sedan needs four seconds to perform the 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) run.
Aside from being more powerful than its predecessor, the 2013 Alpina B3 Bi-Turbo is also about 20 percent more fuel efficient as it can return 29.7 mpg US (35.7 mpg UK or 7.9 liters / 100 km).
More info will be available next month.
