Exterior Design

The appearance of the new BMW ALPINA B5 Bi-Turbo is defined by an athletic flair and natural elegance. The ALPINA design and aerodynamic elements emphasize its performance character, with the front and rear spoiler striking a harmonious balance and highlighting the powerful presence of the BMW ALPINA B5 Bi-Turbo.

The design blends form and function – the aerodynamic components reduce uplift on the front and rear axle to almost zero for maximum driving stability at all speeds. Vents at the front of the vehicle allow the precise and effective flow of air to the individual components of the high-performance cooling system. The iconic BMW kidney grille is fitted with an integrated air flap control system that adapts to the BMW ALPINA B5 Bi-Turbo’s cooling needs: when closed it further reduces the level of aerodynamic drag.

The ALPINA sports exhaust system features two elliptical twin tailpipes that reflect the performance of the new BMW ALPINA B5 Bi-Turbo and its powerful V8 engine. They are neatly integrated in the rear apron for an elegant look.

Unmistakable ALPINA

The world famous decorative stripes, officially known as the ALPINA Deco-Set, are more than a homage to the 70s and 80s, they are an indispensable part of the ALPINA heritage. The Deco-Set set has a pinstripe-like and very fine horizontal design and can be optionally applied to the vehicle front and sides in either Silver or Gold.

The traditional colours of Blue and Green are irreversibly associated with our company. These colours also form the basis of the two exclusive ALPINA paint finishes ALPINA Blue metallic and ALPINA Green metallic. A large number of BMW and BMW Individual paint finishes as well as custom paintwork are also available for the new BMW ALPINA B5 Bi-Turbo.

A very special highlight: The new, free-floating ALPINA lettering in the front spoiler. Like no other element it combines an unmistakeable look with technical finesse. The free-standing design allows the ALPINA engineers to integrate an additional air inlet into the front apron. This achieves the optimal inflow of the central outsourced water cooler. The lettering is available in Silver, Gold or Black ‘high-gloss’.
