Let’s start this wonderful Monday with some new photos from the Geneva Auto Show, this time the Alpina B3 E91 facelifted version.

The first version of the B3 E91 was released in 2007, but the German tuner brings to Geneva the facelif version of it.

BMW Alpina B3 Biturbo E91

The B3 is powered by a 3.0-liter straight-six with an aluminum block and twin-turbo charging. It delivers 360 hp at 5,500 – 6,000 rpm. Maximum torque of 369 pound-feet from 3,800 – 5,000. The B3 Bi-Turbo’s engine has a sporty engine’s willingness to rev to 7,000 rpm.

The driver may also choose to shift manually at the wheel using SWITCH-TRONIC, which contributes in no small part to both the awe-inspiring performance numbers and the ability to save fuel in top gear.

It runs from 0 to 60 mph in just 4.9 seconds.

Upgraded suspension, a body kit, Michelin performance tires, and 19″ wheels improve handling and aerodynamics.

    Is that a two-tone paint job or a carbon fibre roof?

      I think Alpina do carbon skins for roofs, I’d rather the panoramic roof :)

    @Matski:
    I think is carbon fiber roof, i think in europe the m3 comes standar with that even the sedan and coupe, but the sunroof is optional at no cost at least that what i know, i could be wrong thou .
