The B6 GT3 is powered by a 4.4-litre V8 with what Alpina is calling a radial compressor (centrifugal supercharger), taken from the BMW ALPINA B6 S . The power plant produces 530 HP and 725Nm of torque.
"Due to the low centre of gravity, it feels more like a Formula race car than a Touring Car," says test driver Andreas Bovensiepen. The driver also said that the car handled its first 300 Km/h run beautifully and that he is very impressed with the lack of problems during the shake down runs. The car is still undergoing testing before the beginning of the 2009 racing season.
