Alpina XD3 coming next year, XD4 not for Australia

Alpina won't bring the XD4 high-riding coupe to Australia, but we will get the more practical XD3 – albeit with a twin-turbo engine in place of the quad-turbo offered in Europe. Offered with a quad-turbo (yes, quad) inline-six in left-hand drive markets, the XD4 makes 285kW of power and 770Nm of torque. It's put to all four wheels through an eight-speed automatic transmission and a BMW xDrive all-wheel drive system.

Based on the BMW 7 Series, the Alpina B7 features a 4.4-litre twin-turbo V8 pumping out 447kW of power and 800Nm of torque, sent to the rear wheels via an eight-speed automatic transmission.

Alpina boss says its models won't harm M sales, B5 could be on the way

Despite the similarities in performance and pricing, Alpina's CEO is confident that the tuning brand's luxury-focused models will complement BMW's M range, rather than compete with them. Speaking at the brand's local launch at Doncaster BMW in Melbourne, company boss, Andreas Bovensiepen - son of Alpina founder, Burkhard Bovensiepen - told CarAdvice the brand's experience in other markets makes it confident there won't be competition between Alpina cars and BMW M cars.
