BMW has just released its new seventh-generation B5 series, which is also known as the G30. It is a newly redesigned version of the B5 from the semi-official BMW tuner. B5 is a high-performance version of the BMW 5-series. This upcoming version has certain new features but at the same time retains its originality and uniqueness. Though Alpinas have avoided using the same engines like the M division products, but this time the B5 comes pretty close to going quite close along to the new M5.
The new B5-Series has improved in the certain area and has dropped with an expanded collection of all-aluminum six and four cylinder power plant options. The car is most likely continue to employ the outgoing models of 4.4-liter V8 that is equipped with a double dose of turbocharged goodness; the boosted eight-cylinder will see an output of at least 600 horsepower. 2018 BMW Alpina B5 is expected to maintain at the same B7 levels, which translates into 600hp (608PS) and 590lb-ft (800Nm). The car is also developing the D5 model, which came into the news to use a straight-six diesel with three turbos and a power output of at least 400hp.
Alpina’s classic touch will be visible in the car, like the wide, horizontal intake up front, multiple driving modes, and faster dual-exhaust tips at either side of the rear bumper, which makes the car drift its exhaust tips closer to the centre. This new model will be better than the previous ones with a 0-62 mph time of 4.2 seconds and 204 mph top speed.
Unlike the M5, which will only be available as a sedan, Alpina’s B5 will also come in B5 Touring wagon and this time, it will be a lighter weight of the new 5-Series. A new B5 from semi-official BMW tuner Alpina has been spotted testing and it is likely to debut in early 2017.
