Impressive driving performance
The BMW ALPINA D5’s engine character is best described by its excellent throttle response and willingness to rev up to the red-line, which is rather untypical for a diesel. The innovative BMW mild hybrid technology with a 48-volt starter generator delivers a noticeable performance boost especially in the lower speed ranges.
The straight-six 3.0 litre engine with Bi-Turbo charging offers an output of 255 kW (347 hp). A maximum torque of 730 Nm (538 lb-ft) is available from just 1750 rpm and up to 2750 rpm – setting the benchmark in the performance diesel segment. Accelerating from 0 to 100 km/h takes just 4.8 seconds, the sprint to 200 km/h is completed in 19.9 seconds. With a top speed of 275 km/h (171 mph), the BMW ALPINA D5 S is one of the fastest series production diesel available today.
