(continued from above)

Five different generations of 5 Series-based Alpina automobiles have been developed in the last 35 years, revealing to those in the know a unique and exclusive driving experience. The sixth generation draws from the finest ingredients provided by those previous generations to create a mouth-watering palette of characteristics for the most discerning of drivers in the high performance luxury saloon segment.

The overall harmony and the accomplished manner with which the Alpina BMW B5 Biturbo's last fine calibrations were achieved are a common thread, and as always carry that Alpina flair. Sovereign performance and opulent torque assure excellent performance, this in conjunction with "best-in-class" fuel economy and CO2 emissions. Neutral turn-in and road-holding, agile handling and a many-faceted, adjustable suspension satisfy the highest demands in terms of comfort and a sporting nature. The interior's warm ambience and modern treatments foster a sense of well-being. For those who would only award themselves that something unique, exclusive volumes and the Alpina philosophy of hand-craftsmanship offer a nearly endless spectrum of personalization.

Exterior Design

The new B5 Biturbo evolves typical Alpina virtues and design cues in a new and convincing fashion, with a refreshing and dynamic appearance.

Self-assured and powerful, the new front commands attention with decidedly aggressive, aerodynamic lines and wide openings. Clearly exhibiting family heritage, the B5 Biturbo carries it's two double-ended tailpipes neatly integrated into the rear valance, a discreet rear diffuser completing the silhouette.

In combination with the rear spoiler, all aerodynamic components interplay to yield a remarkable reduction in lift of up to 60 % at the front and 30 % at the rear, providing excellent levels of high-speed stability and safety.

Interior: Classic Craftmanship Meets New Technologies

The interior offers a luxurious level standard equipment and delights with discreet touches which hint at the B5 Biturbo's exclusive pedigree. Leather upholstery, versatile and adjustable Comfort seats, excellent multimedia navigation system with Bluetooth and Xenon headlights ensure the driver's and passengers' well-being. The SWITCH-TRONIC steering wheel, hand-stitched with finest LAVALINA leather, features an electrically-adjustable steering column while the exclusive Alpina instruments with black-panel LCD technology illuminate in their typical blue design. The classic Alpina luxury Myrtle wood provides a warm ambience - found only on the USA's Pacific Coast it is cultivated from dedicated Laurel tree groves.
