The new BMW ALPINA B5 Bi-TurboMar 8th, 2017
The fine combination of performance, individuality and luxury, which has defined ALPINA automobiles since the early 1960’s, now reaches a new dimension. The new BMW ALPINA B5 Bi-Turbo combines the best features of its predecessors with state-of-the-art technology.
The new 4.4 litre V8 engine with Bi-Turbo charging, Valvetronic variable valve timing and high-pressure direct fuel injection, delivers a maximum output of 447 kW (608 hp) and 800 Nm of torque. The powerful output and high torque promise excellent driving performance combined with modest fuel consumption. An agile chassis, dynamic handling and electronically adjustable dampers meet highest standards of sportiness and comfort.
As one of the fastest of its kind, the new BMW ALPINA B5 Bi-Turbo is a saloon with classic proportions and a dynamic, modern design that combines the performance of a supercar with everyday driveability and comfort. The excellent 4.4 litre 8-cylinder engine accelerates the new BMW ALPINA B5 Bi-Turbo Saloon from 0 to 100 km/h in just 3.5 seconds, making it the fastest accelerating model ever produced by ALPINA. A high torque output of 800 Nm harmonises perfectly with the excellent 8-Speed Sport-Automatic transmission with ALPINA SWITCH-TRONIC, always ensuring that plenty of forward momentum is available up to a top speed of 330 km/h. Combined fuel consumption measured according to ECE norm: 10.3 l/100 km* and 239 g/km CO2*.
Exciting SPORTINESS, relaxed COMFORT
To fulfil the seemingly contradictory demands for comfort, everyday usability and sports car like handling, the new BMW ALPINA B5 Bi-Turbo is equipped with electronically adjustable dampers, light-weight 20” ALPINA CLASSIC forged wheels and, for the first time, active rear-wheel steering (Integral Active Steering). It gives the new BMW ALPINA B5 Bi-Turbo the agility and handling of a much smaller car.
For the first time in history, the BMW ALPINA B5 Bi-Turbo comes with performance enhancing all-wheel drive as standard. Based on the intelligent BMW xDrive system and featuring a ALPINA specific torque distribution, it guarantees maximum traction, neutral driving dynamics and high levels of safety.
The design of an automobile from ALPINA skilfully combines the BMW design language with distinct and yet evolutionary ALPINA elements. In total the appearance of a BMW ALPINA is a reflection of its inner values: powerful, dynamic, confident but never intrusive.
The appearance of the new BMW ALPINA B5 Bi-Turbo is defined by an athletic flair and natural elegance. The ALPINA design and aerodynamic elements emphasize its performance character, with the front and rear spoiler striking a harmonious balance and highlighting the powerful presence.
Modern DESIGN meets classic CRAFTSMANSHIP
In the interior, the BMW ALPINA B5 Bi-Turbo offers a luxurious ambience, exquisite materials and a modern clarity. An extensive range of standard equipment ensures the very highest level of well-being and comfort.
An additional highlight – the full-colour digital instrument panel in LED technology featuring an exclusive ALPINA design.
