BMW Alpina 5-Series Wagon with 2 Turbos

Visit Autoblog.com to see Alpina B5 Touring
I'm not ashamed to admit that I've become my parents. My most recent car is a station wagon. I needed more room to haul stuff but I wasn't interested in a top-heavy SUV. So I got a BMW wagon. I love it. I haul auto parts, scuba gear and dogs and it still goes like stink, handles like a BMW and gets 25 mpg (which is good with the way I drive.)

Autoblog.com posted a series of photos of the Alpina-modified version of the new BMW 5-Series wagon (BMW calls their station wagons "tourings.") What Alpina is famous for is taking a quick BMW and making it seriously fast. They've been at it since 1961 so they're getting pretty good at it. This new wagon sports a twin-turbo 4.4L V8 that is good for 0-100 kph (62 mph) in 4.7 seconds and a top speed of 187 mph (307 kph). Did I mention it's a station wagon? Sign me up--Frank
