Sport Auto's test drive editor Christian Gebhardt sent us this footage he captured while behind the wheel of the exclusive Alpina B3 GT3.

Based on the BMW 3-Series E92 coupe, this particular B3 GT3 is number 4 of 99 units and features the same twin-turbo 3.0-liter inline six-cylinder unit from the Alpina B3 S Bi-Turbo. However, thanks to an Akrapovic titanium exhaust system output increases by 8 PS (6 kW / 8 hp) for a total power output of 408 PS (300 kW / 402 hp) and 540 Nm (398 lb-ft) of torque.

The 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) sprint takes 4.6 seconds. Also, as Gebhardt shows us in the video, it has a top speed of 309 km/h (192 mph).

Despite its harcore appearance, sporting a custom full-body vinyl wrap from the official B6 GT3 racer, the B3 GT3 is available with an optional Comfort Package, which includes BMW Professional Multimedia Navigation System and BMW Park Distance Control (PDC).

Deliveries of the B3 GT3 are getting under way now. Alpina announced late last year pricing of approximately €90,000, including VAT in Germany.
