Alpina, tired of waiting for the BMW M5 has decided to unleash its own version!
The Alpina B5 B-Turbo.
Oh and with BMW themselves not making an estate version of the M5, Alpina have a little niche market in their hands!
Whats powering it? Only a 4.4 Litre Twin Turbo V8 with a bespoke air intake, intercooler and turbo setup – chucking out 600bhp and 590lb ft torque. This sees 0-62mph in just 3.5 seconds and hit 201mph.
Power goes to all four wheels, unknown if you can lock it to just the rear so perhaps not so good for the drifters out there, but it does have rear wheel steering ready for the hairpin attacks.
The Alpina B5 not taking your fancy? The BMW M5 will be revealed in September
