class leading dynamics, unparalleld ride comfort class leading dynamics, unparalleld ride comfort cutting-edge suspension technology, conceived to match the output and performance of the new bmw alpina b5 bi-turbo, delivers pronounced driving dynamics while maintaining first-class ride comfort. shorter and stiffer springs bring about overall sharper handling, and have the added benefit of lowering the centre of gravity and improving aerodynamics. adaptive dampers increase lateral dynamics while simultaneously allowing a pronounced range of adjustment – the driving experience control regulates both compression and rebound, offering maximum dynamic performance in sport+ mode or all-out ride comfort for gentle cruising in the alpina specific comfort+ mode. new wishbones are specifically engineered to generate 1 degree of negative camber on the front axle for neutral handling, optimum lateral grip and precise steering. for the first time the new bmw alpina b5 bi-turbo comes with rear-wheel steering. the system improves agility markedly by means of the rear wheels steering ever so slightly in opposite direction to the front wheels at low speeds while at higher speeds the rear wheels steer in the same direction as the front wheels for improved high speed and directional stability. new, forged wheels take the traditional 20-spoke alpina classic design in a new minimalistic and technical direction. forging results in high-density and high-strength aluminium alloy which enables a weight- optimized construction resulting in a weight-saving of over 15 kg or nearly 25 % compared to traditional cast aluminium wheels of the same size.
