2009 BMW Alpina D3 Bi-Turbo Sedan

Add another to the list of European imports we don’t get but would love to have. The 2009 BMW Alpina D3 Bi-Tubo Sedan might be a mouthful, but provides impressive performance while delivering solid fuel economy.

The new D3 Bi-Turbo starts with BMW’s 2.0-liter diesel four-cylinder from the 123d and tunes it to produce 214 hp and 332 lb-ft of torque. The sporty diesel is then dropped into a 3-series sedan to provide performance as well as fuel economy.

The Alpina D3 will go from 0-to-62 mph in 6.9 seconds and reach a top speed of 152 mph. All of this while achieving 43 mpg with the manual transmission model and 42 mpg with the automatic on the Euro cycle.

Prices start at £29,995 ($42,495) with the manual and £31,585 ($44,748) with the automatic transmission. As stated above, the car unfortunately will not be making its way across the Atlantic.
