The car’s top speed is 268 km/h.
The head of the company Alpina Burkard Bovensiepen hesitated to add to the line of crossover, but the model Alpina XD3 became successful. Now the family crosses the brand adds XD4 Alpina based on the BMW X4.
Although the BMW X4 a new generation was introduced only a month ago, can not be called XD4 “raw” product. Unlike most firms, specializing in tuning, Alpina operates in the status of the manufacturer, is engaged in engineering, including serious testing with database engine stands and cooperates with BMW in third-party projects. Therefore, access to X4 in the process of developing XD4 from Alpina was in advance.
Under the hood Alpina XD4
Alpina XD3 and XD4 is similar in technical terms. Under the hood of new items is the turbo diesel 3.0-liter engine borrowed from the BMW X4 M40d. The impact of the upgraded diesel has increased from 326 HP and 680 Nm to 388 HP and 770 Nm.
It would seem, why bother to upgrade hardware if it is possible to enhance the impact of chip-tuning, but Alpina has strengths — reliability and good traction at the bottom.
If stock BMW X4 M40d is able to accelerate from zero to first “hundred” for 4,9 seconds, the model Alpina accelerates in 4.6 seconds. In addition, due to the absence of the electronic limiter, top speed XD4 increased from 250 km/h up to 268 km/h.
