The G31 Bimmer will get quite a makeover and it’s enough to look at the firepower of the current B5 Bi-Turbo to understand that. We’ll remind you the massaged speed behemoth sees its twin-turbo 4.4-liter V8 being taken to 591 hp and 591 lb-ft of twist (who doesn’t enjoy a nicely rounded output?).

And when you factor in the weight reduction and torsional stiffness increase brought by the platform of the future 5er, the level of badassery climbs through the roof, so don’t let the station wagon form trick you.

Alpina has always delivered the kind of driving experience that mixes frightening speeds with toned-down sensations. In our book, the lack of driver involvement takes away some of the present model’s shine, so here’s to hoping the G30 (sedan)/ G31 (Touring) models will feel a bit sharper.
