Earlier this year, Alpina revealed facelifted versions of its B5 and D5 S models, available in sedan and wagon bodystyles. It's been several years since we saw a BMW M5 wagon and the Alpina B5 is the closest thing we have to that right now. With 613 horsepower and 590 lb-ft of torque coming from a tuned 4.4-liter V8, the B5 can nearly match the current 2021 BMW M5 Sedan, posting a 0-60 mph time of 3.6 seconds in wagon form compared to the M5's 3.1-second time in Competition guise.
In the real world, there would barely be a noticeable performance difference between the two cars, but aftermarket tuning company McChip-DKR wanted to close the gap. The German tuner has plenty of experience working on cars from Audi, Porsche, Mercedes-Benz, and even turned its attention to an AMG-powered Aston Martin.
