Drive Wire: Alpina Upgrades the BMW M5
In the quest for more power, famous BMW tuner and touring car racing legend Alpina has built an M5 with 600 horsepower, easily beating the factory model with its hardly-puny 560 ponies. Torque jumps from 500 to 590 foot-pounds as well, and the top speed is unleashed from a factory-restricted 165 miles per hour to a free-range 204. The best part? There’s a wagon version, for all you practical sort of people.
