Unveiled in January when the order books had been additionally opened, the corporate’s most potent highway automotive ever is bought out, regardless of an eye-watering price ticket in Germany of €145,500 for the sedan and €148,500 for the wagon. Solely 250 items are being made, and our colleagues at BimmerToday had the chance to pattern the saloon model.

Spoiler alert: It’s critically fast. ALPINA quotes a 0 to 62 mph (100 km/h) in 3.2 seconds and a 0-124 mph (0-200 km/h) run in 10.2 seconds for this B5 GT Sedan. After seeing this video, it’s completely plausible. The extra sensible Touring is a tad heavier subsequently a smidge slower, finishing the sprints in 3.4 seconds and 10.9 seconds, respectively.

It’ll be bigger and heavier than the F90, however the silver lining is it’ll have over 700 horsepower and a Touring model all however confirmed to be bought in the USA.

It’ll be attention-grabbing to see whether or not ALPINA will do one other B5 contemplating the model is shifting beneath the BMW Group’s company umbrella. We’re listening to the Buchloe-based area of interest marque will probably be pushed upmarket to shut the hole between the high-end BMWs and the entry-level Rolls-Royce (if there may be such a factor), so likelihood is the main focus will probably be on the 7 Sequence and X7.
