The 322km/h Alpina B5 Touring is the ULTIMATE SLEEPER!

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

The Alpina B5 Biturbo Touring is the fastest estate car in the world with a top speed of 322km/h, and with discrete styling does that make it the ultimate sleeper? Join me to take a look and a test drive during the Alpina Drive Day to see what it's all about.

I own an Alpina B7 BiTurbo that I purchased used with 34000miles. Estoril Blue/Black+CF. It has now become my everyday and I love it! Its no 608bhp but 540bhp isnt bad.

Question? Why would anyone buy any BMW model with their recent spontaneous fires or “Thermal incidents” as BMW put it?? Just not worth driving around in mobile petrol “bomb” incendiary device.

Since when is an Alpina a sleeper? Anyone who knows about cars would notice the wheels and that famous Alpina badge a mile away. Anyway it’s a fantastic piece of engineering


I hate the Km/h thing! All speeds in mph please. 👍

Yeah but the E60 was doing these speeds 10 years ago. .. and N/A no less.

Doug's the kinda guy who's friend sets him up for a blind date and he thinks it's with a car.

ALi Ta says:

Berba tov says:

Crazy sleeper with the four exhaust pipes and the alpina logo. how stupid you must be to think this is a sleeper? in Germany everybody knows the power of those cars.

Shilpa Samarai says:
