The B5 Biturbo Wagon offers the same powertrain as the sedan, 507 horsepower and 700 Nm of torque from a twin-turbocharged 4.4 liter V8 unit, mated to a SWITCH-TRONIC eight-speed sport automatic gearbox from ZF.
Not yet confirmed, but the expectations are that the B5 Wagon will sprint to 62 mph in 4.8 seconds with a top speed of 187 mph (301 km/h). In comparison, the sedan version needs 4.7 seconds to reach the same speed.
Along with the Touring model, ALPINA also displayed the sedan version of the same B5 BiTurbo.
