Owner and Head of Sales & Marketing of Alpina, Andreas Bovensiepen, introduces and explains the new Alpina B3 and XD3 models in these first videos of Alpina’s two newest models.

The Alpina B3 is based on the F30 335i sedan and the XD3 on the X3 xDrive35i SAV, each recently making a showing at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show.

The Alpina B3 bi-turbo features 410hp, which propels the B3 sedan from 0-62mph in 4.2 sec (4.0 sec for xDrive model) and the B3 touring in 4.3 sec (4.1 sec for xDrive model). It consumes only 7.9 l/100km (29.8 MPG U.S.).

The Alpina XD3 boasts 350hp and covers 0-62mph in just 4.9 seconds.

Alpina has revealed the specs and first full photo of its new B3, based on the F30 335i sedan.

The F30 B3 boasts more power and torque than the E90 B3, yet is more gas efficient.

Full specs (and photos) of the car will be revealed when it debuts at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show early next month.

The F30 Alpina B3 continues testing and we’ve spotted it at the Nurburgring (spied at BMW’s Nurburgring test center).

The F30 B3 test mules (based on the F30 335i) we’ve seen so far provide a good preview of the external styling to expect on the F30 B3, with its Alpina front lip spoiler, aggressive trunk spoiler, quad exhaust, and of course Alpina wheels. It appears that Alpina has now changed the front lip spoiler design from its original preview render. The production version is likely to feature a special exterior color as in past Alpina models.

The F30 B3 will be powered by a highly massaged (by Alpina) N55 engine which should output more than the 400HP from the current B3 S’s N54 engine. It will be … CONTINUED

Alpina has released a preview render of the F30 Alpina B3. Expect it to debut at next year’s Geneva show in March 2013 and to be powered by same N55 engine which powers the current B3 S, but massaged by Alpina to an even higher output than the current B3 S which has 400HP.
