Alpina B5 Edition 50 2015-2016

Anniversary edition of Alpina's hot 5 Series gets 591bhp and can hit 204mph. Is it now a match for a Panamera Turbo?

Alpina XD3

Alpina XD3

Alpina's fast-but-frugal SUV gets a mid-life refresh with styling tweaks and an even more comfortable chassis set-up. Is the overall package still strong?

Alpina D5

Alpina D5 2011-2016

In its own way, the Alpina D5 feels every bit as monstrous as what’s on offer in the latest BMW M5

Alpina B7

Alpina B5 2011-2016

The Alpina B5 is very quick, but it is let down by uninvolving driving dynamics
