Alpina ‚hot diesel’ BMW X3 has four turbochargers

The Alpina XD3, launched at the Geneva Motor Show has a total of four turbochargers hanging off of its 3.0-litre inline-six cylinder engine.

The result is an engine that makes 382 horsepower and 568 pound-feet of torque. That power and torque is channeled through an eight-speed automatic to all four wheels. It also has a limited-slip differential for the rear wheels. Alpina claims this powertrain allows the XD3 to hit 62 mph in 4.6 seconds on the way to a top speed of 165 mph.
