Alpina B5 Biturbo Revealed at Goodwood


Alpina has finally unwrapped its new B5 Biturbo, based on the all-new BMW 5 Series and as you might expect it delivers plenty of luxury, power and style. Fitted with a traditional Alpina aero kit, including a larger front air dam, the big news is under the hood where the 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8 gets pumped-up to 500-hp and 516 ft-lbs of torque. Alpina claims that's enough to rocket the sedan to 62 mph in just 4.7 seconds. Top speed for the German saloon is rated at a startling 191-mph!

Like all Alpinas, the B5 is built on the BMW assembly line and while a definite rival for the current M5, it will offer customers an option half-way between the new 5 Series and the upcoming M5, which is slated to get significantly more than 500-hp and will also come with a dual-clutch transmission, rather than the B5's eight-speed automatic.

Pricing has yet to be announced, but the car will go on sale in Europe shortly with deliveries starting in the Fall.
