Alpina B5 Bi-Turbo based on 2011 BMW 5-Series

BMW tuner Alpina, who like to refer to themselves as a “manufacturer” as per German laws, has released details on their latest model, the 2011 Alpina B5 F10 Bi-Turbo, based on the BMW 5-Series. It is sort of a pre-emptive strike on the upcoming BMW M5.

The exterior basically gets 20-inch Alpina wheels, 255/35 tyres up front and 285/30 in the rear, Alpina-branded front fascia, side skirts, rear bumper with an integrated quad-exhaust, an optional diffuser and a complete swap of BMW badges for Alpina ones.

Under the bonnet is a tuned version of the turbocharged 4.4-litre V8, now producing 507 hp at 5,500 rpm and 700 Nm of torque from 3,000 rpm to 4,750 rpm. It is mated to the SWITCH-TRONIC 8-speed ZF automatic transmission. The rear-wheel-drive sedan is apparently manages a fuel economy rating of 10.8 litres/100 km. The Alpina B5 can do the 0-100 kph run in 4.7 seconds, with a top speed is 307 kph. The tuned “neutral” suspension includes shorter progressive springs and specialised suspension arms. An electronically-adjustable system is also available, BMW’s Variable Damper Control, with four settings for Normal, Comfort, Sport and Sport+. The brakes are bigger too.

On the inside are leather upholstery and special wood trim, as well as new gauges in a black panel LCD display by Alpina.

The 2011 Alpina B5 Bi-Turbo should become available in the UAE and some other GCC countries via the local BMW dealers.

What do you think?



  1. how much does it cost? is it cheaper compared to a M5?

  2. Excelent! The front skirts looks akward.

  3. Alpina’s have been and will always been priced higher than M Cars…But I Believe the 2011 M5(F10) does 0-100km/hr in around 4.3seconds 🙂

  4. I want hyundai accent 2015 bodykit.. please help me
