2020 Alpina B3 Touring revealed: Still want that M3 wagon?

Alpina has revealed its latest worked-over BMW, the B3 Touring, with sights set on filling a void BMW M has consistently refused to fill. Based on the garden-variety 3 Series Touring, the B3 Touring is powered by an S58 3.0-litre inline-six turbocharged petrol engine making 340kW and 700Nm. That means it's actually the first 3 Series to get the M3's new engine. It's put to all four wheels through an eight-speed ZF automatic transmission.

Alpina is readying a BMW X7-based model with more than 440kW, according to new reports from the USA. Speaking with Automobile Magazine in America, Alpina's boss confirmed his firm is working on a seven-seat XB7, potentially with power from the same engine used in the 7 Series-based B7. If that's the case, the XB7 would have a twin-turbo 4.4-litre V8 engine under the bonnet making 447kW and 900Nm, the latter of which is on tap between 2000 and 5000rpm.

2018 Alpina XD3 spied in Germany

A BMW X3 prototype believed to be the upcoming Alpina XD3 has been spied this week in its home of Germany.

Top: Alpina XD3, Bottom: BMW X3 prototype Unlike to BMW's in-house performance versions of the X3, the Alpina XD3 uses diesel power - twin-turbo-diesel, to be exact.
