Who's all set for an almighty BMW v Alpina drag race?!
So let's see how these famous 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 pointers the scales at 1,690 kg.
As you 'd expect, the routine B10 arrives with very similar stats. Under the bonnet, you'll discover a 4.6-litre naturally-aspirated V8, which can put down 340hp and 470Nm. It also powers the rear wheels, however it's also somewhat lighter, coming in at 1,660 kg.
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 effective automobile here, however it has two drawbacks. Not just is it the heaviest cars and truck here, at 1,795 kg, however it's also the only manual automobile in this line-up!
Will the absence of an automated gearbox prove to be its downfall? There's just one way to learn … LET'S RACE!
