Geneva 11' Preview: Alpina B5 BiTurbo Touring…The Closest We'll Get to an M5 Wagon

We’re still waiting for BMW to officially unveil the next M5, but in the meantime the guys over at Alpina have created the B5 BiTurbo Touring, which is based on the new 5 Series Touring.

The Alpina B5 Touring is powered by the same 4.4L V8 as the sedan, but in the B5 Touring the engine puts out 507 horsepower and 516 lb-ft. of torque. The engine is mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission. 0-62 mph is reached in 4.8 seconds and the wagon has a top speed of 187 mph. Other additions include a new aero kit and 20-spoke wheels. BMW has no plans for an M5 wagon, so this is your only choice if you were waiting for one.
