For it's 50th anniversary the one and only Alpina manufactury will be making 50 fresh and shiny saloons and coupes under the B5 and B6 Bi-Turbo designation. This woud be the point of making some of the most anticipated hi-end luxorious road and race cars to rule over European streets. All the vehicles will be heavily modified to bring you the pleasure of driving a beauty, geared with revised V8, that will take you from 0 to 100km (62mph) in 4.2 seconds, so you can try reaching top speed of 204 mph.
