Alpina B5 Touring

Alpina B5 Touring


It’s a pretty strange place we petrolheads find ourselves in these days, with hot hatches having 400bhp and family estate cars having 600bhp, it truly is a power war gone crazy – not that we’re complaining! So far Mercedes and Audi have had the super-estate market to themselves with the AWD V8 twin turbo E63S and RS6, as BMW doesn’t make an M5 Touring. But that hasn’t stopped Alpina making one of their own with the B5 Touring. So they take an AWD V8 twin turbo 5-Series Touring and work their magic, resulting in a 600bhp monster that looks subtle yet menacing, is comfortable and refined inside and yet tops out at a staggering 201mph. The rivals can only manage 174mph if you pay a fortune for their respective ‘Drivers’ Package’ so should you find yourself on the autobahn you can exert your superiority over them with ease. The B5 may not have the aggression and brutality of the M5 but Alpina go their own way with a comfy yet controlled ride and a far better exhaust note thanks to their Akrapovic-made exhaust. Best all-round car in the world? We like to think so!
