In 1965, Burkard Bovensiepen founded ALPINA. A company that is passionately committed to the development and production of exceptional automobiles for connoisseurs and enthusiasts. With a luxurious interior, incredible performance and a discreetly sportive exterior. Dynamism paired with elegant understatement characterises each and every ALPINA automobile. To this day, nothing has changed in this philosophy.

For over 50 years, ALPINA has been a small antithesis to the automotive mass market. Both on the road and on the racetrack, BMW ALPINA automobiles have repeatedly caused sensations. ALPINA looks back on a long tradition of small, exclusive limited edition models, all of which represent the extraordinary. They have become coveted collectors‘ and enthusiasts‘ items.

Continuing this tradition of exciting editions, the BMW ALPINA B5 GT was born. It expresses our passion for automotive masterpieces, combining a nuanced, distinct appearance with the most powerful, high-performance drivetrain in the company‘s history. The B5 GT marks the pinnacle of the BMW 5 Series at ALPINA.

Available as a Saloon and Touring, limited to 250 units worldwide.

The most powerful drivetrain in ALPINA‘s history

The BMW ALPINA B5 GT is powered by the well established 4.4 litre V8 bi-turbo engine, renowned for its dynamic and smooth power delivery and high torque. For the first time, this engine delivers 466 kW (634 hp) and a maximum torque of 850 Nm, making it the most powerful engine in ALPINA‘s history!

330 km/h - Benchmark

The sprint from 0 to 100 km/h takes just 3.2 seconds (Touring:  3.4 seconds) – especially breath-taking ist the instant and continuous thrust up to a top speed of 330 km/h (Touring: 328 km/h). These numbers are best-in-segment and make the B5 GT possibly the fastest series production “family” Saloon and Touring worldwide.

Powerful eight-cylinder sound

The ALPINA sports exhaust system with a new middle silencer configuration produces a throaty eight-cylinder sound. The two twin tailpipes are coated with titanium nitride in a complex production process for a black finish.

ALPINA CLASSIC 20“ forged wheels

The latest version of the timeless 20-spoke design of the ALPINA CLASSIC 20“ forged wheels has been adopted for the BMW ALPINA B5 GT - the delicate spokes run inwards with a distinctive contour to the iconic lockable wheel cap. The wheels are exclusively finished in the B5 GT design colour Marron Volciano and feature discreet B5 GT lettering.

Special Paintworks

In addition to the classic traditional colours ALPINA Blue (standard) and ALPINA Green (standard), the BMW ALPINA B5 GT is available in the following six specially selected paint finishes: Arctic Race Blue, Petrol Mica, Verde British Racing, Chalk, Imola Red or Daytona Violet.


The traditional exterior design stripes, commonly known as the ALPINA Deco-Set, are available exclusively in Marron Volciano, Blue Matt and Green Matt - resulting in a wide range of design options.


A dome-bulkhead-strut serves as a front-end reinforcement, improving steering precision and feedback. Additionally the B5 GT Touring benefits from a marginally reduced ride height at the rear, resulting in a lower centre of gravity and optimised roll support on the rear axle.

Stopping Power

Four-piston fixed brake callipers from Brembo with brake discs of 395 x 36 mm (15.5 x 1.4“) diameter on the front axle and floating brake callipers with brake discs of 398 x 28 mm (15.7 x 1.1“) diameter on the rear axle offer excellent and consistent deceleration. Featuring lightweight drilled brake discs and highly heat-resistant brake pads the high-performance brake system provides even more direct pedal feedback and improved fading resistance.

Finest Materials

There is a wide range of interior trim options available. Leather Nappa in a range of colours is available as standard with a further three different Full Leather Merino options available as an option. Customers can also take advantage of ALPINA‘s in-house saddlery to configure an individual, exclusive full-leather interior handmade by a master craftsman from the finest naturally tanned LAVALINA leather to create their very own, unique BMW ALPINA B5 GT. A common feature of all upholstery variants is a high-quality embroidered „B5 GT“ lettering in Marron Volciano with white outline in the front headrests.

Finally there is a B5 GT bespoke upholstery available exclusively and in limited numbers. It features sport seats with flared side bolsters to provide pronounced lateral support. The handfinished upholstery combines black Dakota Leather with black Alcantara seat centres including blue colour accents and ALPINA lettering.
