"BMW ALPINA D3 Bi-Turbo"


New BMW ALPINA D3 Bi-Turbo combines astonishing performance (173 mph, 0-62 in 4.6 seconds) with finely-honed bespoke engineering, 53 mpg and CO2 emissions of just 139 g/km

With 350 hp and a remarkable 700 Nm of torque, the new D3 Bi-Turbo will catapult its occupants from zero to 62 mph in just 4.6 seconds and on to 173 mph, yet has combined cycle fuel economy of 53.2 mpg and CO2 emissions of just 139 g/km.

Based on BMW’s latest generation 3-Series, the D3 Bi-Turbo is the result of a two year development programme during which every aspect of the vehicle was analysed and refined to increase performance, comfort and style.

The BMW ALPINA D3 Bi-Turbo is available in the UK as a Saloon for £46,950 or as a Touring (estate) for £49,950, with a long list of standard equipment that includes an eight-speed automatic gearbox, Adaptive M Sport Suspension, leather upholstery, electrically adjustable heated sports seats, climate control and Bi-Xenon headlights.

Tax-efficient Performance for Business Users

The D3 Bi-Turbo Saloon has a P11D value of £46,950 and, because of its low CO2 emissions, incurs a 2012/13 BIK tax rate of just 22%. This makes the annual taxable benefit £10,340, meaning a 40% tax payer would currently pay £344.66 per month – little more than half the tax payable for running a comparable petrol vehicle.
