The B5 Touring is the closest thing you can get to a modern M5 wagon.

The latest versions of the Alpina B5 and D5 S are here to add performance and luxury to the BMW 5 Series for folks looking for something hotter than the German company offers. Both models arrive in October in Germany. The B5 starts at €117,700 for the sedan and €120,700 for the Touring. For the diesel-powered D5 S, the four-door goes for €92,500, and the wagon is €95,500.

The B5 comes with a 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8 that makes 613 horsepower (457 kilowatts) and 590 pound-feet (800 Newton-meters of torque. The power runs through an eight-speed automatic gearbox to a rear-wheel-biased all-wheel-drive system. A mechanical limited-slip differential is an option. In comparison, the current M5 Competition has 617 hp (460 kW) and 553 lb-ft (750 Nm).

The B5 sedan reaches 62 miles per hour (100 kilometers per hour) in 3.4 seconds, and the wagon pushes that time to 3.6 seconds. The top speed is 205 mph (330 kph) for the four-door and 200 mph (322 kph) for the estate. An M5 Competition gets to 60 mph (96 kph) in 3.1 seconds and tops out at 189 mph (304 kph) with the M Driver’s Package.

If you prefer a diesel engine, then the D5 S uses a 3.0-liter triple-turbo inline-six engine making 402 hp (300 kW) and 590 lb-ft (800 Nm) of torque. It gets to 62 mph in 4.4 seconds as a sedan and 4.6 seconds for the wagon. The four-door has a top speed of 178 mph (286 kph), versus 176 mph (283 kph) for the estate. Like the B5, these models also use an eight-speed automatic with rear-biased all-wheel drive.

The B5 and D5 S ride on adaptive dampers, and there's rear-wheel steering that can turn the tires up to 2.3 degrees left or right. The vehicle rides on Alpina's trademark multi-spoke wheels that measure 20 inches in diameter here.

In terms of styling, the B5 and D5 S wear a revised front fascia with inlets that are 40 percent larger than on a 5 Series. The company also fits a different rear bumper with a design that better fits Alpina's dual-outlet sport exhaust that exits out of each corner. Alpina covers the inside of the B5 with hand-stitched  Lavalina leather. BMW's navigation system comes standard.

ULTIMATE PERFORMANCE
4.4 LITRE V8 ENGINE WITH BITURBO CHARGING

The BMW ALPINA B5 impresses with sharpened responsiveness and a distinctly more dynamic power delivery over the entire rpm range. The latest generation 4.4 litre V8 engine with two twin-scroll turbochargers delivers 457 kW (621 hp) and 800 Nm (590 lb-ft) of torque, which is available at only 2000 rpm and all the way up to 5000 rpm. This leads to significantly improved throttle response, more engaging power delivery and an effective performance gain in the most relevant rpm range.

The BMW ALPINA B5 Saloon accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in just 3.4 seconds (Touring in 3.6 seconds) and completes the sprint to 200 km/h in 11.3 seconds (Touring in 11.9 seconds). The maximum speed is 330 km/h (205 mph) (Touring 322 km/h (200 mph)).

The engine’s remarkable power and torque characteristics are the result of several optimisations in the details – especially with regards to the turbocharging system. Two twin-scroll turbochargers with 54 mm turbines facilitate the near-instantaneous conversion of exhaust gas energy into boost pressure, even at low engine speeds for early maximum torque. The ALPINA cooling system with three additional external water coolers, an enlarged transmission oil cooler and a low-temperature cooling system (air/water/air) with ALPINA’s specific intercoolers, ensure thermodynamic stability even under highest loads.

The latest exhaust gas treatment technology includes petrol particulate filters in order to reduce emissions. Fuel consumption measured according to the new and more realistic WLTP measuring cycle (Worldwide Harmonized Light-Duty Vehicles Test Procedure) is 12.0 l/100 km with CO2 emissions of 272 g/km.* The ALPINA stainless steel exhaust system reduces the exhaust back pressure to a minimum. Exhaust valves allow the driver to influence the sound experience: discreetly restrained in COMFORT mode or noticeably more dynamic in SPORT mode.
* Preliminary data. Stated fuel consumption and CO2 emissions are measured pursuant to EU Regulation 715/2007 in its applicable version. For more information please see NEW TEST PROCEDURE (WLTP) at the end of this press release.
SMOOTH AND EFFORTLESS POWER DELIVERY
8-SPEED SPORT AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION & REAR AXLE LIMITED-SLIP DIFFERENTIAL

The BMW ALPINA B5 features the latest generation 8-Speed Sport Automatic Transmission with ALPINA SWITCH-TRONIC. In cooperation with the experts at ZF, the 8HP76 transmission has been specially designed to cope with the engine’s high torque. Offering unparalleled shift comfort and the capability to execute shifts in tenths of a second means power is delivered effortlessly and instantaneously at all times.

The complete redesign of the electronics and mechatronics in this new-generation transmission ensures precise operation and responsiveness. In SPORT and SPORT+ modes, shift points are optimized for driving performance and gear shifts are considerably more dynamic. The COMFORT and COMFORT+ mode allow for relaxed, luxurious cruising at low engine rpms even when travelling at highway speeds, taking advantage of the signature ALPINA torque responsiveness. The driver can also change gears manually using the ALPINA SWITCH-TRONIC shift buttons on the back of the steering wheel. In SPORT+ Shift Mode, automatic up-shifts at red-line rpm are suppressed for absolute driver control. New ergonomically optimised ALPINA SWITCH-TRONIC shift paddles, CNC machined from solid aluminium and finished in black matt, are optionally available.

All components of the transmission such as the torque converter with lock-up clutch and the planetary wheel sets are designed to specifically cope with the high torque output of the V8 Bi-Turbo engine. The high-performance transmission unit features an aluminium transmission oil sump located in the underbody where it is cooled effectively.

The transmission features the latest Comfort and Efficient Dynamics functions such as Connected Shift (use of navigation data for an anticipatory shift strategy based on traffic routing) and sailing (decoupling of the engine and transmission when coasting).

Enhanced driving dynamics, pure driving pleasure: A mechanical limited-slip differential, using motorsport grade CNC machined components, is available as an option. The BMW ALPINA B5 dynamically corners with a rear-wheel drive emphasis and the increased power transfer and traction allow particularly dynamic acceleration out of corners.
CLASS-LEADING DYNAMICS – UNMATCHED LONG-DISTANCE COMFORT THE ALPINA SPORT SUSPENSION

Maximum ride comfort, pronounced agility and lateral dynamics: The ALPINA Sport Suspension it is ideally suited for the performance characteristic of the BMW ALPINA B5 and offers a broad spectrum of driving experiences.

Electronically controlled dampers allow a pronounced range of adjustment in compression and rebound. Using the Driving Experience Control the driver can select a number of modes, including SPORT+ mode for maximum dynamics or COMFORT+ mode for all-out ride comfort. Shorter and stiffer springs bring about overall sharper handling, and have the added benefit of lowering the centre of gravity whilst improving aerodynamics. The Touring variant of the new BMW ALPINA B5 has a rear-axle air suspension which ensures a neutral ride height and balanced handling characteristics regardless of loads. The adaptation of the active roll stabilisation specifically takes into consideration the kinematics of the BMW ALPINA B5’s suspension and light-weight 20” wheel and tyre set-up.

The Integral Active Steering offers direct steering response with exceptional feedback. The variable sports steering system and -1° camber at the front axle ensure superior handling in every driving situation. The electromechanical rear-wheel steering enables the wheels of the rear axle to pivot a maximum of 2.3° left or right. At low speeds, the rear axle steers opposed to the front axle for increased agility and dynamic handling. Conversely, at higher speeds the rear axle steers “with” (congruent to) the front axle for maximum directional stability. In combination with subtle elastokinematic measures the ALPINA Sport Suspension ensures high directional stability, precise steering and agile handling. The all-wheel drive system is based on the intelligent BMW xDrive system, which fully variably distributes torque as required between the front and rear axle. The ALPINA specific, situational traction-optimised adjustment of the torque distribution is predominantly rear-wheel-biased to match the sportive character of the BMW ALPINA B5.
EXCELLENT ROAD HOLDING WITH MAXIMUM GRIP: WHEELS, TYRES, AND BRAKES

The ALPINA 20-spoke wheel design of the ALPINA CLASSIC 20’’ forged wheels has become a true iconic hallmark. Compared to regular wheels, the forged wheels improve agility by reducing unsprung masses by around 25%. The wheels are optionally available in Black or Himalaya Grey.

In cooperation with the tyre experts at Pirelli, tyre dimensions are carefully chosen to the requirements of the BMW ALPINA B5. The tyre dimensions are 255/35 ZR20 at the front and 295/30 ZR20 at the rear (Touring: 285/30 ZR20) (EU-tyre label*: E/B/ 74 dB front and rear). The Pirelli P Zero marked ALP provides maximum grip on any road surface and utilises materials that are reserved for the ultra-high performance tyre program.

The ALPINA brake system, comprising four-piston fixed brake callipers with brake discs of 395 mm diameter on the front axle and floating brake callipers with brake discs of 398 mm diameter on the rear axle, offer excellent braking performance. The brake callipers are painted in ALPINA Blue and feature a white ALPINA logo. The optionally available high-performance brake system with light-weight drilled composite brake discs and specific brake pads offers even higher thermodynamic reserves and more direct pedal feedback.**
