The BMW ALPINA D5 S impresses with its dynamic power delivery over the entire rpm range and willingness to rev up to the red-line, which is rather untypical for a diesel. The straight-six 3.0 litre engine with three turbochargers offers an output of 300 kW (408 hp). A maximum torque of 800 Nm (590 lb-ft) is available from just 1750 rpm and up to 2750 rpm – setting the benchmark in the performance diesel segment.
The BMW ALPINA D5 S Saloon accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.4 seconds and the Touring in 4.6 seconds. With a top speed of 286 km/h (178 mph) (Touring 283 km/h (176 mph)), the BMW ALPINA D5 S is one of the fastest of its kind.
