World’s fastest diesel production car emerges from Alpina

BMW-fettler Alpina 3 series, car news

Renowned  BMW-fettler Alpina has introduced a new diesel-powered version of the 3-series, said to be good for 173mph.
The D3 Biturbo uses a tweaked version of BMW’s twin-turbocharged straight-six diesel, producing 345bhp and516lb ft of torque. In addition to the headline-grabbing top speed, those outputs also result in a claimed 4.6sec 0-62mph time alongside official consumption and emission figures of 53.2mpg and 139g/km respectively.
The previous D3 was Alpina’s first diesel-powered car, and used a version of BMW’s 2-litre four-cylinder engine, tuned to 211bhp and 332lb ft. The new engine raises the bar by a considerable margin, and we’ve already sampled it in the XD3 (evo 188).
The D3 gets a subtle visual makeover, including the usual Alpina-branded front airdam, plus 19in multi-spoke alloys. An eight-speed auto gearbox is standard, as is adaptive M-sport suspension, while any BMW factory option can be specified. UK prices are £46,950 for the saloon and £49,950 for the Touring.
