2020 Alpina B3 G20 Sedan revealed

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
They have shown the B3 sedan at the Tokyo Auto Show with a quoted 0-62 (100kph) of 3.8 and top speed of 188mph, I guess you knock off .1 or .2 for the US 0-60 run.

Alpina re-engineered the M340i's turbocharged, 3.0-liter straight-six to squeeze out 462 horsepower and 516 pound-feet of torque. It spins the four wheels via an eight-speed automatic transmission manufactured by ZF and tweaked in-house for quicker shifts, and BMW's xDrive all-wheel drive system.

Not coming to the U.S., however.

Man... Alpina is smart to release pics of the B3 today. What a shame they aren't bringing this beauty stateside. If there has ever been an opportunity to sell some Alpinas this is it:

Nah.

Never understood the allure of Alpina. The new M3 will grow on you, same way as it grew on all of us after some time.

Remember those people that said they preferred the pre-Lci taillights? Where are they now?

It's insane that we've been asking for these for so long and they haven't brought them over. I hope the G80 is a flop and they start bringing these over to boost sales.

Sweet baby Jesus it's finally based on the m-sport exterior design.

I wish the wheels were more similar to the alpine Z8 wheels but overall this is nice

I saw this a couple weeks on YouTube. I think it was the you car channel. I would rather wait and get the M3.

It's a very nice color. Matt Russell, the Regional Representative of Alpina USA & Canada had a new B7 at Oktoberfest last week and drove it on track at the BMW Performance Center.

That is color probably the best one they do. Gorgeous in natural light.
