If you ever find yourself disappointed or bored by the current BMW lineup for whatever reason just plant yourself deep in the world of Alpina. It’s busy making crazy BMWs, like the 2019 XD3, which has a quad-turbo diesel inline-six with 388 horsepower and an insane amount of torque.

The Geneva Motor Show is just around the corner and the mad scientists over at Alpina are gladly hauling in the 2019 XD3, which is not only good for 388 horsepower, but also 567 lb-ft of torque. It’s good for a zero to 62 mph time of 4.6 seconds and tops out at 165 mph.

There’s also a twin-turbo 3.0 liter straight-six with 333 hp and 516 lb-ft of torque that goes zero to 62 mph in 4.9 seconds, topping out at 157 mph—which is set up for right-hand drive markets.

Both versions of the XD3 only come with a ZF 8-speed automatic and a tweaked version of BMW’s X-Drive system. Massive 20-inch wheels are standard, because it’s an Alpina of course, and a lightweight 22-inch wheel option is also available.

All of the available images only have European plates, and the release only hinted at European emissions information, so it doesn’t seem like this one is likely to come stateside. Jalopnik reached out to Alpina and will update when more information is available.

In the meantime, is there a more bewilderingly cool production crossover?

It may look okay from the outside but the inside looks like a goddamned ecstatic blue-eyed cartoon clown that wants to steal my soul.
