Another ALPINA debut at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show is the super sporty B5 based on the F10 5 Series. The upgraded B5 uses a tuned up V8 4.4 liter engine with two Honeywell-Garrett turbochargers that produces 540 horsepower and a maximum torque of 730 Nm.

This is 33 hp and 30 Nm higher than the Alpina B5 Bi-Turbo revealed last year.

The full power is reached at 5,200rpm and the maximum torque of 730Nm is available from 2,800 to 4,500rpm. The updated D5 BiTurbo runs to 100 km/h in 4.3 seconds (0.2 seconds faster than previous model) and the top speed is reached at 320 km/h.

    why can’t  they just admitted that the new B5 Bi-Turbo has the same Horsepower as the new M5 ??? Why 540??? why 540 Vs 560(M5)  ???     AS a BMW ALPINA B7 owner…..I am very confused about this issue ..A lot of Magazines say they ran a test on my E66  US SPEC B7….and they came away with this conclusion that This B7 has more horses then they Adertised( 500 HP)     ……but why??  when I spent a total sum of 150K USD  back in 2008 ….for my B7…I wanted It to be the ultimate BMW SEDAN..!!!!!! Cuz when I told my other friends that my B7  has got more horses  than their AMGs   …no one believed in me…so …in  the end  …why did I buy a turner version of 7 series That  on the paper… looks some what Tame  in comparison to like AMG S63 ????????/

      they are not creative with numbers..either its the same hp numbers or very very close , almost identical , but the torque figures are somewhat higher on Alpina , and they always claim less hp than the actual . not sure why. thats cheating.
      bmw has strange policies .
