Z u have the Edition 50 models in the B5 as Sedan and Touring and in the B6 as a coupé and convertible. With the special models for the company anniversary, Alpina is giving customers 60 additional horsepower. In the Alpina B5 Biturbo Edition 50 and the Alpina B6 Biturbo Edition 50, the well-known 4.4-liter V8 Biturbo has a whopping 600 hp and provides a maximum torque of 800 Nm. The standard versions have only 540 hp and 730 Nm.

Alpina Edition 50 with weight advantage

In addition to the increased performance, the Alpina Edition 50 models are also equipped with further weight-optimized 20-inch forged light metal rims (- 15, 6 kg) equipped with visible wheel bolts. Wider tires are also used on the rear axle. Other updates include a reinforced rear brake and an optional 395 high-performance brake on the front axle. Dampers and control systems have been adapted to the new framework conditions.
