Alpina brought to Goodwood the new B5 model, the 500-horsepower version of the 5 Series model, able to compete even with the next generation M5.
As promised, people from Alpina brought at Goodwood its future rival for BMW M5. Developed based on the new generation of the 5 Series model, the 550i version, model called B5, proposes an interesting combination of power and performance. This time also the tuners choosed to not use the V10 engine from the M Division, preferring to intense modify the current 4.4-liter V8 engine.
The result of this modification was easy to guess: 500 hp and 700 Nm of torque, sufficient resources to print a sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.7 seconds and a top speed of 307 km/h. However, Alpine argues that the performance sedan will be able to offer a combined cycle consumption of only 9 liters per 100 km and thet the emissions level will not pass the 252 g/km threshold.
