In a few years, the Alpina will belong to BMW, but before that happens, the “official” customer of the Bavarian brand is already sending a message to the future owner, asking for more space so that he does not get lost with the M division.

For a long time, Alpina has been customizing BMW cars, giving them their own style, well-known with spoked wheels and excellent finishing, but without stopping, providing that recognizable preparation for a guarantee.

Alpina B5 GT 2023 comes with the name of the most powerful car of the German customizer and BMW product, making the rebuilt sedan reach 634 horses, but there is an important detail in this, which could be the brand of the company in the future.

The power of the B5 GT is 1 horsepower less than the 635 horsepower of the BMW M5 CS, which seems to be an order from BMW to the German tuner, however, this is not a problem when you get the opposite.

With a modified V8 4.4 Biturbo, the Alpina B5 GT 2023 has more than 10 kgfm more torque than the M5 CS, from 76.2 kgfm to 84.6 kgfm.

After retuning the transmission, along with the four-wheel drive, it reached 330 km/h at the end and went from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.4 seconds.
