Aplina BMW D3 Bi-Turbo Coupe on sale in the UK, gets 44mpg

The new ALPINA BMW D3 Bi-Turbo Coupe is now officially on sale in the UK ready to rival its competitors with its outstanding power-to-weight ratio – for a diesel.

That gives the ALPINA BMW D3 Bi-Turbo Coupe the ability to go from 0-62mph in 6.9 seconds with a top speed of 152mph. Fuel-economy comes in at 44mpg for the manual version and 42mpg for the automatic.
