BMW`s tuning division Alpina has recently announced its intentions of launching the long-expected B5 Bi-Turbo model in 2016, in two versions, the sedan as well as the touring. Both will be launched as a celebration of Alpina`s 50th anniversary.
Once launched next year, the Alpina B5 Bi-Turbo sedan will come with an entry-level price of 108,600 euros, while the touring will set you back at a higher 111,900 euros.
Both versions will come with customized sports suspension with electronically adjustable damping, active roll stabilization, optional lightweight titanium exhaust system, courtesy to Akrapovic tuner, limited slip differential, or the high-performance fixed-caliper brake system.
As the name suggests, the 2016 Alpina B5 Bi-Turbo will pack a 4.4-liter V8 bi-turbo unit, with an impressive 600 horsepower and 800 Nm of torque, which is actually the same mill used on the Edition 50 cars.
The 2016 Alpina B5 Bi-Turbo is thus capable of sprinting from 0 to 100 km/h in a good 4.2 seconds, at a topping of 328 km/h. In terms of fuel-efficiency however, the model does not come with any improvements, as it burns out the same 9.5 liter / 100 km. The CO2 emissions stand at 221 g/km.
