Alpina has revealed the 2016 B5 Bi-Turbo in sedan and station wagon variants.
Earlier this year Alpina launched two special models celebrating the company’s 50th anniversary and now it is presenting the 2016 MY of the B5 Bi-Turbo. The model gets a revised 4.4-liter V8 biturbo engine that now generates 600 HP (441 kW) and 800 Nm (591 lb-ft) of torque. Actually, this is the same unit the producer introduced with the Edition 50 models.
The updated B5 Bi-Turbo now accelerates from a standstill to 100 km/h (0-62 mph) in 4.2 seconds and reaches a top speed of 328 km/h. The combined fuel consumption remains unchanged, standing at 9.5 liters per 100 km with 221 g/km of CO2 emissions.
The car has also been equipped with a sports suspension that now offers electronically adjustable dampers and active roll stabilization. Standard equipment includes a limited slip differential, Merino leather upholstery for the seats, and piano black interior trim. Optionally customers can purchase a lightweight titanium exhaust system by Akrapovic that is 17 kg lighter than the standard system, and a high-performance fixed-calliper brake system.
Prices for the 2016 B5 Bi-Turbo start at €108,600 for the sedan and €111,900 for the Touring.
