Frankfurt Motor Show will make a great entrance for numerous units and car makers looking to wow the crowds, yet one of those main actors is expected to be Alpina, with its unit built by the current BMW 3 Series.
The close relationship between Alpina and BMW is already more than popular, the German tuning house being entirely dedicated to Bavarian Motors’ work.
Just to refresh your mind, the latest masterpiece of Alpina was the B3 Bi-Turbo unit derived from the BMW 335i unit, carrying 410 HP. If that one was introduced during Geneva Motor Show, for this year’s Frankfurt Motor Show they took BMW’s 3 Series unit and turned it into a D3 Bi-Turbo.
This time, the tuned unit should carry six cylinders in line, with a 3.0 liters capacity. The diesel bi-turbo engine should generate up to 350 HP and go from 0 to 100 km/h within less than 5 seconds.
Those familiarized with the previous work of BMW and Alpina know that this configuration is getting pretty closer to the last one so we are all anxiously waiting for the middle of September, when all these should open in front of our eyes.
