400 HP BMW Alpina B3S revealed for the UK

Customers looking for a more special BMW in the UK have more reasons to celebrate as the 3 Series-based Alpina B3S has just been revealed by the German coachbuilder.

The model, which you can see above in Convertible form, uses the 3.0-liter straight-six engine but manages to squeeze a very impressive 400 HP and around 400 lb-ft of torque. This doesn’t mean fuel average has dropped, as it can still get around 24.2 mpg (US) on the combined cycle. CO2 emissions are also quite low, considering the sporty nature of the B3S, at 224 g/km.

Among the bespoke features that will make the Alpina B3S stand out from the other BMW 3 Series models will be things like a new front spoiler, a revised rear diffuser plus a set of alloy wheels similar to the ones we saw on the much bigger Alpina B7 limousine.

The B3 S Bi-Turbo will go on sale this summer and appear in all 3 Series body forms: Saloon, Touring, Coupe and Convertible.
