ALPINA has turned 50 last year, and has created the EDITION 50 models: 50 automobiles based on the BMW ALPINA B5 Bi-Turbo and 50 automobiles based on the BMW ALPINA B6 Bi-Turbo, featuring the most powerful engine throughout the company’s history so far. The EDITION 50’s 4.4 litre V8 Bi-Turbo boasts an output of 441 kW (600 PS) at 6,000 rpm and a maximum torque of 800 Nm.
The exclusiveness of this special edition is emphasized by a sophisticated coffee-table book, which is lined in a cover resembling the stitched leather seats in the car’s interior. It features beautiful photographs of the anniversary models which were shot in Croatia, in a first-time collaboration with automotive photographers Frederic Schlosser and Arnaud Taquet.
Each individual “Owner’s Book” is matched with the corresponding automobile of the anniversary edition, featuring the car’s production plaque. This makes the “Owner’s Book” just as limited as the anniversary edition automobiles, and it’s is not available for purchase. Each customer of the EDITION 50 automobiles has received their own personal, exclusive copy.
