2020 Alpina B3 sedan revealed in Tokyo

Alpina has added a sedan to its B3 line-up in Tokyo, bringing all-wheel drive, inline-six power and loads of luxury to the three-box 3 Series. The new B3 sedan has the same fundamentals as the Touring. That means power comes from an S58 3.0-litre twin-turbo inline-six (the same engine that'll be used in the new M3) making 340kW and 700Nm, put to all four wheels through an eight-speed ZF automatic transmission.

Alpina readying BMW X7-based flagship

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.

2019 Alpina XD7 spied

Photographers have snapped images of what is believed to be the upcoming Alpina XD7 at the Nurburgring in Germany, giving us an early preview of the tuning arm's take on BMW's largest SUV model. While little distinguishes this camouflaged prototype from the recently-revealed BMW X7, trainspotters will notice the (normally fake) intakes on each side of the front bumper are open, feeding air into a pair of intercoolers.
