Geneva de­but for Alpina su­per­sa­loon

Auto Express - - News -

ALPINA beat the next BMW M5 to the punch by re­veal­ing its new B5 at Geneva. It gets a tuned ver­sion of the 4.4-litre twin­turbo V8 found in the M550i that makes 600bhp and 800Nm of torque, and it comes with four-wheel drive as stan­dard.

That means 0-62mph in 3.5 sec­onds and a top speed of 205mph. There won’t be a BMW M5 Tour­ing, so the B5 Tour­ing will be the clos­est es­tate buy­ers can get.
