The upcoming ALPINA B5 facelift was spied at Nurburgring.

The ALPINA B5 sedan facelift made its debuts in September at the Frankfurt Auto Show. The B5 outputs 540hp (397kW) at a moderate 5200rpm, with a maximum torque of 730Nm available from 2800 to 4500rpm. The V8 powerplant comes with two Honeywell-Garrett turbochargers sit inside the V of the two cylinder banks, working in parallel to force-feed the 4.4l all-aluminium engine.

Compared to its super-charged predecessor, this engine configuration delivers more torque over a broader range and improves throttle response at low revs.

Both the BMW Alpina B5 F10 LCI and the BMW Alpina B5 Touring F11 LCI accelerate in 4.3 seconds from 0 to 100 km/h and reach top speeds of over 300 km/h. The standard consumption for both B5 variants remains 9.5 and 9.6 liter per 100 km.
