Here is the link guys, i am personally a fan of the new G20 3 Series and think it looks rather decent. Excited to see Alpina make it their own! Found the info on BMW Blog.

The article states.......

"Both the new BMW ALPINA B3 Biturbo and the diesel variant D3 Biturbo are likely to be powered by inline-six-cylinder engines with a displacement of 3.0 liters. For the petrol engine, the B3 S is expected with at least 450 hp, which in combination with the all-wheel drive, will make for a sprint time of four seconds from a standstill to 100 km/h.

The new BMW ALPINA D3 G20 could use the updated 388 hp Tri-Turbo variant of the diesel six-cylinder, same engine installed by ALPINA in the XD3, XD4 and D5 S. Therefore, the diesel 3 Series would approach close to the four-second mark and could once again differentiate itself from the 350 hp predecessor. In the form of the upcoming BMW M340d xDrive, the ALPINA D3 also receives new competition from Munich."

The new D5 has less HP that the old one so maybe this will also apply to the new G20 D3 compared to the older one. This would differentiate it more from the incoming B3 in respect to performance. We will see what they come up with. All wheel drive will be interesting.
