ALPINA presents the new BMW ALPINA D3 Bi-Turbo, a model that is powered by a BMW 2.0-liter, four-cylinder turbo-charged diesel engine with an aluminum block. It can produce 214 horsepower and 450 Nm of torque. After a lot of testing and extensive development work, the turbo charger was improved. The smooth power delivery can be further enhanced with the optional ALPINA SWITCH-TRONIC automatic transmission that sends the power to the wheels. The model uses a suspension technology that has received rave reviews from the press. It features excellent rigidity and five-arm rear suspension that help a lot improve the driving dynamics. The ALPINA CLASSIC tires and wheels were weight-optimized to provide exact steering and great feedback.
The BMW ALPINA D3 Bi-Turbo continues the success story which the popular D3 sports diesel began in 2006.
The new unit now offering 214hp at 4100rpm and initially only available in the Coup√©, can now be enjoyed in the new Saloon or Touring. An even smoother power delivery, increased torque (450Nm) and the availability of an automatic transmission increase the all-round potential of the D3 Bi-Turbo even further.
State-of-the-art diesel technology, diesel particle filter, auto start-stop (manual only) and brake energy regeneration all combine to make the D3 Bi-Turbo the most efficient diesel in its performance class!
The D3 Bi-Turbo‚Ä™s underpinnings are provided by a BMW 2.0-litre, four-cylinder, turbo-charged diesel engine with an aluminium block. A Bosch common rail high-pressure injection system running at 2,000 bar and utilising Piezo injectors ensures maximum efficiency.
Two turbochargers of different sizes force-feed the engine. The smaller of the two provides boost from tick-over and helps the four-cylinder yield an impressive 400Nm (295lb-ft) of torque at 1500rpm, reaching a peak torque of 450Nm (332lb-ft) at a mere 2000rpm. The larger turbocharger is fully engaged from approximately 3000rpm onwards, enabling the engine to reach a peak performance of 214hp.
Extensive development work and thousands` of miles of testing have resulted in optimised turbo charger and fuel injection system mapping. The new D3 Bi-Turbo unit revs freely up to 5200rpm, while most diesel aggregates today don`t even contemplate going past 4500rpm.
The exceptionally smooth power delivery can be further enhanced with the optional ALPINA SWITCH-TRONIC automatic transmission, providing the freedom of manually selecting gears utilising buttons on the back of the steering wheel.
Chassis & Suspension
The D3 Bi-Turbo uses suspension technology quite similar to the BMW ALPINA B3 Bi-Turbo, an automobile whose suspension and chassis set-up has received rave reviews from the press. Excellent rigidity and five-arm rear suspension provide ALPINA great potential for the highest levels of driving dynamics
The strut and spring calibration is appropriately sporty, matching the D3‚Ä™s character. Thanks to the low kerb weight, extraordinarily agile and lightfooted handling has been achieved. The standard low ratio tyres and weight-optimised ALPINA CLASSIC light-alloy wheels yield outstandingly exact steering and great feedback.
