Alpina B3 GT3 Debuts in Tokyo [Updated]
The B3 GT3, which uses the E92 BMW 3-Series Coupe as a starting point, is powered by an evolution of the 3.0-liter twin-turbo straight six of the Alpina B3 S Bi-Turbo. We get a new exhaust system that uses an Akrapovic titanium rear silencer, offering the engine an extra 8 hp. The unit now delivers 408 hp at 6,000 rpm and 540 Nm (398 lb-ft) at 4,500 rpm.
The Alpina B3 GT3 needs 4.6 seconds to cover the 0 to 62 mph sprint and offers a top speed of 300 km/h (187 mph).
All that speed will be kept under strict control with the aid of an adjustable sports suspension, a set of 19-inch lightweight forged wheels, as well as a beefier braking system. The vehicle comes with multiple aerodynamic tweaks and its interior offers a pair of Recaro bucket seats, as well as a new sports steering wheel finished in Alcantara.
The Alpina B3 GT3 is a limited edition vehicle, with only 99 units of the vehicle set to be offered, for a price of EUR90,000 ($120,000) each.
Update: the vehicle’s spec list at the event shows that it is being offered for a bit under JPY13,000,000 or EUR124,400.
