Teaser Video: 2017 Alpina B5 Bi-Turbo Gets Ready for Geneva
In case you were wondering if Alpina, BMW`s strongest arm, would come out with the wagon variant of the future 2017 B5 Bi-Turbo, then the answer is yes.
Following some recent teasers with the sedan variant, Alpina Automobiles has recently released a video teaser with the upcoming 2017 Alpina B5 Bi-Turbo, which is set to arrive at the upcoming 2017 Geneva Motor Show.
As we can depict from the video, we are looking here at rather the same body style as the sedan, except for the rear end which is now coming in the shape of a wagon style. The same features are also seen on the model.
The model will also stand on BMW`s new and high-performance CLAR platform, the same underpinning the new G30 5-Series, meaning more lightweight materials which sheds-off around 100 kg, improving the car`s driving characteristics and allowing for much performance engines.
In terms of space inside, the wagon will come with a split tailgate and 510 liters with the seats folded up. Technologically, we expect the same gadgetries as in the Bi-Turbo sedan and 5-Series range, including semi-autonomous technology. It will however come with distinguished features signed by Alpina and will differentiate it from BMW`s G30 5-Series.
As far as the engine goes, the new 2017 Alpina B5 Bi-Turbo will come with the same 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8 engine, also found on the BMW 550i, but with an increased power of around 441 kW.
We will be able to find full details with the new 2017 Alpina B5- Bi-Turbo Wagon at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show! Meanwhile, take a closer look at the teaser video with the model below!
