After being teased two weeks ago, the Alpina B5 Bi-Turbo made its official debut today at the Goodwood Festival of Speed. The car will go on sale this fall and is expected to be priced at £70,000 (around $105,00 at the current exchange rates).

The Alpina B5 Bi-Turbo is powered by a tuned version of BMW’s 4.4-liter twin-turbocharged V8 engine that delivers 500 HP and 516 lb ft of torque. The engine will be coupled to a a modified version of ZF’s eight-speed automatic gearbox. With this amount of power the new B5 Bi-Turbo will sprint from 0 to 60 mph in 4.7 seconds and will be capable of hitting a top speed of 191 mph.

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.

I just like its simple concept and plain scheme. It looks very nice. Its tailgate spoiler is too big, otherwise I like the styling.

Well this one much better, I like its simple concept and plain scheme. And after being teased guess they deserved a official debut for this.

This new model help to forget the E60. Good looking car though.
It’s my pleasure to drive one. I just get a confusion whether to choose a manual or new 8 speed.

I like standard 5-Series and I would seriously buy one if have to choose between it, E-Class and A6. Didn’t mention the Jaguar XF because it’s my favourite sedan in this class.

The tailgate spoiler is too big, otherwise I like the styling, despite it just being the usual Alpina affair. A diesel version that does the same sort of performance but coughs out much less CO2 would be great.
