BMW ALPINA D3 S

Transmission

Comfortable and dynamic power delivery

The 8-Speed Sport-Automatic Transmission 8HP76, developed in cooperation with transmission specialist ZF, is specially adapted to the performance characteristics of the high-torque straight-six diesel engine. The revised transmission software, in interplay with new transmission mechatronics, ensures fast response and quick shift times.

In the ALPINA specific COMFORT+ Shift Mode, the transmission shifts smoothly, gear changes are almost imperceptible. The shift points in SPORT Shift Mode are set for maximum driving performance and the gear changes are significantly faster and clearly noticeable.

ALPINA SWITCH-TRONIC

The driver can also change gears manually using the ALPINA SWITCH-TRONIC shift buttons on the back of the steering wheel. In SPORT+ Shift Mode, automatic up-shifts at red-line rpm are suppressed for absolute driver control. New ergonomically optimised ALPINA SWITCH-TRONIC shift paddles, CNC machined from solid aluminium and finished in black matt, are optionally available.

The disclosed fuel consumption and CO2 emissions are measured according to WLTP (Worldwide Harmonized Light-Duty Vehicles Test Procedure) and converted to NEDC (New European Driving Cycle) for comparison purposes. Depending on your country, vehicle related taxes or other duties may be based on fuel consumption and CO2 emissions data which differs from that shown here.

Further information on specific fuel consumption and specific CO2 emissions of new passenger cars is given in „Leitfaden über den Kraftstoffverbrauch, die CO2-Emissionen und den Stromverbrauch neuer Personenkraftwagen” which can be obtained free of charge at all points of sale and from the Deutsche Automobil Treuhand GmbH (DAT), Helmut-Hirth-Str. 1, 73760 Ostfildern-Scharnhausen.
