Touring fans let’s gooooo!

We’ve got our hands on the latest & greatest BMW Touring cars, and they’re about to go head-to-head over the quarter mile! The question is, will it be a walkover for the new M3 Touring?

Well, let’s start off by looking at the stats. Starting with Mat in the Alpina B3 Touring, it’s powered by the S58 3-litre twin-turbo straight-six engine from the new M3 Touring. However, the power output has been tweaked, so it delivers 495hp and 730Nm of torque. Power is sent to all four wheels via an 8-speed auto gearbox, and it tips the scales at 1,955kg. If you’re looking to pick one up, the price starts at £80,700.

Alongside it, we have the M3 Touring. It comes with the same 3-litre twin-turbo straight-six, but the power output increases to 510hp and 650Nm. It comes with an 8-speed automatic gearbox and all-wheel drive, and it weighs in at 1,865kg. The starting price for one of these is £87,000.

Then we have the lesser-powered tourings. First up is the M340i, which is equipped with a 3-litre straight-six turbo that puts down 374hp and 500Nm. It’s the lightest car here, at 1,795kg, and the price comes in at around £62,000.

Then finally we have the M340d. It comes with the same size engine as the M340i, with the power output set at 340hp and 700Nm. Power is sent to all four wheels via an 8-speed auto gearbox, and it tips the scales at 1,870kg. The price is pretty similar to the M340i, coming in at around £61,000.

So will it be a clean sweep for the M3 Touring? There’s only one way to find out… LET’S RACE!
