The Alpina B5 GT is in fact a finely honed version of the 2020 renewed Alpina B5, the luxurious counterpart of the BMW M5 that is more focused on high-speed cruising than on the tightest cornering. Yet this B5 GT gets a slightly sharper edge, to begin with thanks to its slightly boosted engine. It now delivers 634 hp and 850 Nm, 13 hp and 50 Nm more than before, making it the most powerful Alpina to date. The power gain is due to an improved intake tract and light software tuning.
Total 330 km/u!
Little bits that do make a difference, because from now on the BMW Alpina B5 GT whizzes from 0 to 100 km/h in less than 3.4 seconds, to steam through to a top speed of no less than 330 km/h. No standard sports sedan does better today. But unlike the M5, you can also get the B5 GT as a Touring, although you sacrifice a fraction of the performance: 0-100 km / h in 3.6 seconds and a top speed of 322 km / h. Still no cat pee, and the dog can come along.
On board you can tell that you are driving a B5 GT thanks to the embroidered model name on the headrests of the Lavalina leather seats, although that upholstery is optional. You will also find more leather and anthracite wood trim elements on the dashboard. After all, there are plates on the center console and in the engine compartment with the unique serial number of your BMW Alpina B5 GT, because Alpina only sells 250 copies of this sporty top model worldwide. The German prices start at 145,500 euros for the saloon and 148,500 euros for the Touring, for Belgium you still have to add a little bit due to our higher VAT rate (21% compared to 19%).
