In a fresh contemporary design, the BMW ALPINA B5 strikes a superb blend of performance, exclusivity, and elegance.
The performance and dynamics of the BMW ALPINA D5 S are unrivalled in the class. With three turbochargers, the 3.0 litre straight-six cylinder engine produces an astonishing 408 hp. Between 1750 and 2750 rpm, a maximum torque of 800 Nm (590 lb-ft) is attainable, making this current version Best-In-Segment.
The 4.4-liter V8 engine with bi-turbo charging produces 621 horsepower and 800 Nm (590 lb-ft) of torque, which is available from only 2000 rpm. The BMW ALPINA B5 stands out because of its rapid, linear throttle response and on-demand power delivery over the full rpm range. The ALPINA SWITCH-TRONIC 8-Speed Sport Automatic Transmission was created specifically to handle the engine's tremendous torque.
Alpina has fine-tuned BMW's already superb 5 Series and constructed a pair of 600bhp powerhouses, granting a trio to worry about.
