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.
