BMW ALPINA B5

Powertrain

Ultimate performance

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)).

Performance enhancing all-wheel drive (xDrive)

The BMW ALPINA B5 all-wheel drive is based on the BMW xDrive system, which fully and variably distributes torque as required between the front and rear axles. 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.

Deep, sonorous eight-cylinder sound

The stainless steel ALPINA exhaust system features active exhaust valves as well as trademark twin tailpipes and provides a natural V8 soundtrack.

The disclosed fuel consumption and CO2 emissions are measured according to WLTP (Worldwide Harmonized Light-Duty Vehicles Test Procedure) and converted to NEDC (New European Driving Cycle) for comparison purposes. Depending on your country, vehicle related taxes or other duties may be based on fuel consumption and CO2 emissions data which differs from that shown here.

Further information on specific fuel consumption and specific CO2 emissions of new passenger cars is given in „Leitfaden über den Kraftstoffverbrauch, die CO2-Emissionen und den Stromverbrauch neuer Personenkraftwagen” which can be obtained free of charge at all points of sale and from the Deutsche Automobil Treuhand GmbH (DAT), Helmut-Hirth-Str. 1, 73760 Ostfildern-Scharnhausen.
