The Alpina B3 GT3 Bi-Turbo Coupe has moved firmly into Porsche 911 GT3 territory with this motorsport-inspired special edition, unveiled at today’s Tokyo motor show.
Just 99 examples of the B3 GT3 are being built to commemorate Alpina’s win with its B6 GT3 model in the 2011 German GT Series. Each B3 GT3 comes equipped with a twin-turbo 3.0-litre straight-six engine tuned to produce 402bhp. It can crack 0-62mph in just 4.6sec and reach a top speed of 186mph. Drive is sent to the rear wheels through a six-speed ZF auto’ gearbox.
The B3 GT3 has undergone a thorough dynamic makeover over the standard B3 S. A titanium exhaust system with twin carbonfibre tailpipes contributes to both an 8bhp power hike and a “raspy sound”.
A fully-adjustable coilover suspension system and a limited-slip differential are both standard and are derived from the B6 GT3 racer. New lightweight 20-spoke 19in forged alloy wheels wrapped in Michelin Pilot Sport 2 tyres also feature as standard, along with a high-performance motorpsort braking system.
