BMW E39 M5 vs Alpina B10: DRAG RACE

Who’s ready for an almighty BMW v Alpina drag race?! We’ve got Mat lining up in an Alpina B10 S, and he’s about to go head-to-head against an E39 M5 and a regular Alpina B10!

So let’s see how these legendary saloons compare. Starting with the B10 S, it’s powered by a 4.8-litre naturally-aspirated V8 that can produce 380hp and 510Nm of torque. It powers the rear wheels only, and it tips the scales at 1690kg.

As you’d expect, the regular B10 arrives with very similar stats. Under the bonnet, you’ll find a 4.6-litre naturally-aspirated V8, which can put down 340hp and 470Nm. It also powers the rear wheels, but it’s also slightly lighter, coming in at 1,660kg.

Then finally we have the E39 M5. It’s equipped with a 4.9-litre naturally-aspirated V8 which can produce 400hp and 500Nm. So it’s the most powerful car here, but it has two disadvantages. Not only is it the heaviest car here, at 1,795kg, but it’s also the only manual car in this line-up!

Will the lack of an automatic gearbox prove to be its downfall? There’s only one way to find out… LET’S RACE!
