Alpina B5 Biturbo gets 600 bhp BMW V8, £89,000 price tag

The new Alpina B5 Biturbo, it is powered by a 600bhp twin-turbo petrol V8, is priced from £89,000 in the united kingdom.

The first deliveries of the B5 Biturbo will take place in March, in the salon priced from £89,000 and the Touring estate £ 91,000. Single-digit numbers is expected, but there is no limit in the production. A greater number of the more frugal D5 diesel that is expected.

Both the sedan and Touring versions of the hot gas of the 5-Series variant of used BMW 4.4-liter unit, which outputs 590lb ft of torque. The B5 Biturbo accelerates from 0 to 62 mph in 3.4 seconds and tops at 204mph.

The performance is slightly above the new BMW M5, which produces 592bhp, accelerates from 0 to 62 mph in 4.2 seconds and has a top speed of 190mph.

BMW will not be producing an M5 Touring, so the B5 Touring will be the hottest goods that are offered in the 5 Series range. It has been given an updated twin-scroll turbochargers nestled between the cylinder banks, as well as to upgrade the air flow, intercoolers and brakes.

Rear-wheel steering is used, allowing the car to turn the rear wheels up to an angle of 2.5 degrees, and a mechanical limited-slip differential is a £2500 option.

The standard B5 Biturbo saloon achieves 26.9 mpg and emits 240 g/km of CO2, while the B5 Touring returns 26.2 mpg and 247g/km

Both the B5 and D5 have Alpina’s own foreign family-style and multi-spoke wheels. The performance-honed suspension and gearbox configuration also will give you the two hot models Touring the sharper responses of BMW’s regular farms.

Uk pricing has yet to be confirmed for the D5, but a figure of around £60,000 is expected.
