The Alpina B3 and Alpina D3 S have been updated based on the arrival of the facelifted BMW 3 Series, which was revealed by the German automaker last week.
Both cars benefit from increased power, aerodynamic improvements, revised exterior design and new technical software.
The updated Alpina B3 is powered by a 3.0-liter straight-six engine rated at 488 hp – a 32 hp improvement over the previous car.
Torque is also increased by 22 lb-ft to 538 lb-ft. Reserves are channeled through an eight-speed automatic transmission.
The B3 Saloon covers the 0 to 100 km/h in 3.6 seconds and the station wagon-bodied Alpina B3 Touring completes the sprint in 3.7 seconds. Top speed is 190 mph.
Alpina’s D3 S, meanwhile, uses a 3.0-litre straight-six diesel engine with mild-hybrid technology backed by a 48V starter-generator, which the company says improves response and the efficiency of the accelerator.
It has 5 hp more than the previous version, at 355 hp, and generates 539 lb-ft of torque. The D3 S Saloon takes 4.6 seconds to sprint 0-62 mph and the Alpina D3 S Touring 4.8 seconds.
The D3 S can reach a top speed of 168 mph. It is also capable of 40.9 mpg.
Both cars receive various exterior design changes, including additional front and rear components to improve aerodynamics.
Inside, every model gets a 14.9-inch curved display, as well as a digital driver display and BMW’s eighth-generation iDrive system.
Both cars are open to order now, with prices starting at €88,600 (£74,550) for the Alpine B3 and €77,050 (£64,831) for the D3. The first deliveries are expected in October.
