A few weeks before its world premiere at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show, the new BMW Alpina B5 2017 on a 5-series G30 is camouflaged through the snow.
An official teaser video increases our anticipation of the new BMW Alpina B5 2017. The manufacturer of exclusive automobiles from Buchloe shows us its interpretation of the BMW 5 Series G30 in a heavily camouflaged form on a winter test track, but the most important characteristic is clearly visible despite the camouflage film: The joy of driving and the driving fun typical of Alpina are certain with the new B5 Biturbo not to short!
Responsible for this is primarily the V8 biturbo with 4.4 liter displacement known from the current B7, which should make an even more impression in the lighter environment of the BMW Alpina B5 G30. Even if there is currently no official confirmation of this, we are also assuming the same performance level as in the B7 on the software side — 608 hp and a maximum torque of 800 Newton meters are an even bigger exclamation point in the upper middle class than in the previous one Luxury class environment!
BMW Alpina B5 2017: Power-G30 debuts in Geneva
The world premiere at the Geneva Motor Show 2017 should bring clarity regarding the engine and the resulting performance in around two weeks, when we will see the power sedan on a 5-series basis undisguised for the first time. As usual in Buchloe, the BMW Alpina B5 Biturbo will appear very cautious in terms of its performance, a modified front apron and a rear spoiler lip are still set in view of the expected top speed of over 300 km / h. Further indicators for connoisseurs are of course the typical Alpina rims and the four tailpipes at the rear.
A few months after the sedan, the new BMW Alpina B5 Touring will also see the light of day and close the gap in a large power station wagon from Munich that has existed for years on the M5. Technically, the B5 Touring G31 will largely correspond to the sedan, but thanks to its larger cargo space it will appeal to a completely different target group.
A little later, we also expect the presentation of a new BMW Alpina D5 Biturbo, which is aimed primarily at frequent drivers looking for performance and exclusivity with a diesel with at least 350 hp. What exactly the engine developers at Alpina will be teasing out of the new in-line six-cylinder diesel B57 cannot yet be predicted.
