Alpina B5 Bi-Turbo teased just ahead of Goodwood debut


There has been a lot of people following the rumors surrounding the Alpina B5 Bi Turbo and a lot of attempts at creating a rendering of what this highly anticipated car would end up looking like. Finally, we are able to put some of those presumptions to rest. Alpina Alpina has unveiled today the first image of the B5 Bi-Turbo that will be unveiled at the Goodwood Festival Of Speed on July 1-4, 2010. Based on the BMW 5-Series , the B5 Bi-Turbo combines luxurious performance, elegant styling, sporty handling, and exclusivity.

The new BMW ALPINA B5 Bi-Turbo combines all of these elements to project a fresh and modern design much like the 2010 BMW Alpina B3 S Biturbo with more of an Alpina B7 look to it.

No details are being divulged as of yet - again, we’re not surprised - but knowing these guys and their capabilities in tuning up BMWs, we figure that it’s going to have something along the lines of what they placed under the hood of their previous work-of-art, the Alpina 7-Series Bi-Turbo. That, of course, was a 4.4-liter V8 engine that produces as much as 500 horsepower and 536 lb/ft of torque. We likey a lot.

And to the tuning house’s credit, they didn’t push the envelope with the B5 Bi-Turbo’s design, opting for a conservative approach that only includes new body kits on the 5-Series’ front lip spoiler and rocket panels, in addition, of course, to a new set of multispoke wheels.

Stay tuned for more updates from Alpina leading up to the B5 Bi-Turbo’s debut at the Goodwood Festival of Speed in a month’s time.

Press release after the jump.

hmm. For a Bi-Turbo , I don’t think that the power output of the vehicle is impressive. I think its kind of less powerful, and ordinary v8 technology can produced a 500 hp but since its twin turbo I think it could actually boost up to 700+ hp.

I guess the production of this vehicle was postponed. I have to admit that the BMW 5 series is quite an impressive vehicle. However, its still unoriginal for the Alpina to copy its engine. I hope to see an original platform and styling for their vehicle.

Well, aside from the look of this car I think there is a difference between this car and BMW car and i guess that thing can be identify if we see this car personally.

This car has no difference with the original concept of BMW car. However, I think this production would be awesome since its using a v8 technology and yet its not gas guzzler!

Still not overly excited about those wheels. I am curious to see what they do to the vehicle though.

They’re just not only into building a sports cars but also they build legends.

If they are going to loose those grills on the bottom, I think this car will be gone wild, and that’s gonna be EPIC.

yes most of the alpina cars are very teasing, and all of them has an impressive performance and looks.

Yes, all of the aplina models very successful they blend the luxurious performance, elegant looks and sporty. The only problem with it is its affordability.
