There’s a certain something about an incredibly fast yet discrete estate car, and the Alpina B5 Biturbo Touring is up there with the best you can find! As the fastest station wagon available to buy with a top speed of 322km/h, the 5 Series estate features a host of Alpina specific aspects that make it more exclusive than otherwise so join me for a full tour and driving experience to find out what it’s like.
With a 4.4l V8, the Alpina B5 Biturbo offers 608ps and 800nm to help propel it to the top speed. However, it does this in style and comfort without a huge sense of drama, making it an absolute sleeper with immense capability but without shouting about it. On the exterior there are updates bumpers and small visual changes, while the interior features a new look dashboard.
During the Alpina Drive Day at the Salzburgring, we kick off in the paddock to take a tour of the specifics to the car before heading out for a brief drive to get an understanding of what it’s all about.
Thanks for watching, Tim
