Alpina Celebrates 50 Years with Special Edition B5 and B6 Models

Published: Fri Mar 13, 2015 by Marko P.  |  Source: Alpina

50 years ago, Burkard Bovensiepen founded Alpina, a company which committed itself to the development of automobiles for demanding clients, with luxurious exteriors and interiors, while at the same time offering better performance and cornering ability than series BMW cars.

To celebrate this anniversary, the German manufacturer (it has achieved the "manufacturer" status because their cars are so heavily modified) has unveiled two very special limited edition models: B5 and B6. The B5 is available as a Saloon and a Turing, while the B6 is offered in a Coupe and Convertible configuration. They are both rear-wheel drive only and capped to 50 examples each.

In the case of the B6 Edition 50, the exterior is differentiated from other B6 models by a subtle decal set in Blue or Green matt with "Edition 50" lettering. According to Alpina, this helps the cars achieve "an elegant, restrained appearance".

Inside, black leather seats are combined with seat and backrest centers in Forest Green with chequered Yellow/Black stitching - this exclusive interior design is reminiscent of the B7 S Turbo Coupé upholstery from 1982. This handcrafted interior is available as an option on the basis of an Alpina Lavalina upholstery. Piano black interior trim with "Edition 50" lettering and a personal signature by Burkard Bovensiepen, the founder of the company in 1965, are an integral part of every Edition 50 interior.

As the series B6 models, the B6 Biturbo Edition 50 is powered by a revised BMW 4.4-liter twin-turbo engine with 600 hp and 590 lb-ft of torque, making it the most powerful engine in the company's history. The B6 Biturbo Edition 50 Coupe accelerates from zero to 60 mph in just 4 seconds and can reach a maximum speed of 205 mph (330 km/h).

The extra engine power is partly due to the light-weight exhaust system developed in cooperation with Akrapovic. In addition, it is 37 lb (17 kg) lighter compared to the series stainless steel version.
