BMW Alpina D3 Bi-Turbo Saloon 1

Substituting a larger engine for added performance could be considered alien, but not for Alpina’s BMW D3 Bi-Turbo. Powered by a tweaked twin-turbo diesel powerplant sourced from the 1-series, the stylish D3 packs both a manual and an automatic transmission that helps it go 0 to 62mph in only 6.9 seconds and onward to a top speed of 152mph. Proving its muscle by outputting a 214 hp (10hp more that the 123d) and 332 lb-ft of torque, the new sedan also impresses by staying low on fuel consumption with an impressive 45 mpg (US). Yours for a good $43,000… [via Jalopnik]
