BMW ALPINA B5

Chassis

Maximum ride comfort and lateral dynamics

The ALPINA Sport Suspension offers a wide variety of driving experiences ranging from plush ride comfort to advanced dynamics. Electronically controlled dampers allow a pronounced range of adjustment in compression and rebound. Shorter and stiffer springs bring about overall sharper handling, and have the added benefit of lowering the centre of gravity whilst improving aerodynamics. The adaptation of the active roll stabilisation specifically takes into consideration the kinematics of the BMW ALPINA B5’s suspension and light-weight 20” wheel and tyre set-up.

Agility

The Integral Active Steering offers direct steering response with exceptional feedback. The variable sports steering system and  -1° camber at the front axle ensure superior handling in every driving situation. The electromechanical rear-wheel steering enables the wheels of the rear axle to pivot a maximum of 2.3° left or right.

Excellent deceleration

The ALPINA brake system, comprising four-piston fixed brake callipers with brake discs of 395 mm diameter on the front axle and floating brake callipers with brake discs of 398 mm diameter on the rear axle, offer excellent braking performance. The optionally available high-performance brake system with light-weight drilled composite brake discs and specific brake pads offers even higher thermodynamic reserves and more direct pedal feedback.*

*Please note that drilled bake discs may lead to a loss of acoustic comfort.

Limited-slip differential

Enhanced driving dynamics, pure driving pleasure: A mechanical limited-slip differential, using motorsport grade CNC machined components, is available as an option. The BMW ALPINA B5 dynamically corners with a rear-wheel drive emphasis and the increased power transfer and traction allow particularly dynamic acceleration out of corners.

The disclosed fuel consumption and CO2 emissions are measured according to WLTP (Worldwide Harmonized Light-Duty Vehicles Test Procedure) and converted to NEDC (New European Driving Cycle) for comparison purposes. Depending on your country, vehicle related taxes or other duties may be based on fuel consumption and CO2 emissions data which differs from that shown here.

Further information on specific fuel consumption and specific CO2 emissions of new passenger cars is given in „Leitfaden über den Kraftstoffverbrauch, die CO2-Emissionen und den Stromverbrauch neuer Personenkraftwagen” which can be obtained free of charge at all points of sale and from the Deutsche Automobil Treuhand GmbH (DAT), Helmut-Hirth-Str. 1, 73760 Ostfildern-Scharnhausen.

Efficiency-Class

Determined on the basis of the measured CO2 emissions taking into account the mass of the vehicle.
