Alpina has released new information about its new F30 BMW 3 Series-based B3 car ahead of the 2013 Geneva Motor Show.
With a stunning 410 HP output coming from a 3.0-liter straight 6-cylinder N55 turbocharge engine, the third-generation B3 Alpina has no less than 110 HP over the standard BMW 335i.

Thanks to the new ZF 8-speed automatic transmission, Alpina's latest creation is able to accelerate to 100 km/h (62 mph) from a standing start in only 4 seconds.

According to the Buchloe, Germany-based manufacturer, the B3 Alpina is about 20 percent more fuel efficient that the standard F30 BMW 3 Series (29.7 mpg / 9.9 liters / 100 km).

More details will be revealed during the car's debut at next month's Geneva Motor Show.
