Video: BMW ALPINA B3 BiTurbo

We are not going to be apologetic in our love of all things Alpina. Sure they are expensive, sure they sometimes can be a bit over the top but that is the whole point. The automobiles that Buchloe churns out are nothing less than stellar when you consider the bespoke nature and exclusivity they represent. The B3 BiTurbo is the essence of performance and luxury wrapped into one. Don’t believe us? Check out the video. The caveat being the US can only dream of this car- especially in wagon form.

Bi-Turbo and Style, The New Alpina B3 BiTurbo

It takes a lot to be an auto manufacturer in Germany. It takes even more to hang with the best and that is precisely what Alpina has done with their newest offerings (at least on paper). The all new B3 is a slick interpretation of luxury and performance in an exclusive package. Truth is, over the years we have met some seriously passionate BMW personalities but few come close to Alpina\'s proprietor Andreas Boviensapien and we have grown to respect the brand a great deal. As an engineer and race driver that has a knack for building things that get up and go in a hurry Andy shows genuine enthusiasm, as is evident by the twinkle he gets in his eyes when discussing products that are finished up at his Buchloe factory.

Video: Old School Alpinas

We will not apologize for loving the old school BMW driving experience, the E30 M3 and M535i before it- but there may be a few cars out there that are BMW based and tuned to perfection that sit on the same pedestal. Those cars would be from Burkard Bovensiepen, the founder of Alpina.
