Engine and Arrival

The bodywork of the new B5 will be impressive without any doubt, but the performance figures will make the car really outstanding. According to our sources, the 2018 Alpina B5 will use a twin-turbo 4.4-liter V8, which will be able to pump out around 591 horsepower and 591 lb-ft of torque. The station wagon is built on the new lightweight CLAR architecture with plenty of carbon fiber, so the performance should be additionally enhanced.

It’s not the official information yet, but we have found out that the carmaker plans to introduce the all-new 2018 BMW Alpina B5 at the next Geneva Motor Show. On the other hand, the US model will likely show its face at the next New York Auto Show in April.
