Alpina’s most direct swipe at a BMW M car yet produces an almost entirely convincing result

The Alpina D3 is perhaps the most desirable saloon car yet in the 'real world'

Alpina XD3 Biturbo
The XD3 is the first SUV to be developed by Alpina

The Alpina XD3 Biturbo is judged to perfection; fast, rewarding and no less versatile than any BMW X3

From £51,3509
The D5's styling is less heavy handed than that of the BMW M5

In its own way, the Alpina D5 feels every bit as monstrous as what’s on offer in the latest BMW M5

The Alpina B7 super-luxobarge makes a modicum of sense on Germany's derestricted autobahns, but not for the UK
