  • Introduction

    The D5 Turbo is based on the BMW 530d. It is the first diesel model offered by Alpina in Japan.

    It was developed as the D5 BiTurbo could not be homologated in Japan.

    In summer 2012, the D5 Turbo was introduced, available as righthand-drive Limousine version only.

    In August 2013, the LCI version of the D5 Turbo was introduced.

    Production of the D5 Turbo ended in early 2016.


    The engine in the D5 Turbo is based on the BMW 530d engine, which retains stock engine block and internal parts. It has been modified to 280hp and 600Nm. Heat management is improved by installing the additional cooling package from the hot-climate version of the 535d, as well as extensive custom Alpina air ducting and intercooler. Additionally, the D5 Turbo has a custom exhaust.

    The engine is not used in any other Alpina model.

    The only available gearbox is the 8-speed Sport-Automatic transmission (ZF 8HP70) with Switchtronic.


    The D5 Turbo has adaptive M sport suspension with electronically adjustable dampers. The suspension is modified with Alpina settings and springs. The wheel carriers are heavy-duty items sourced from the BMW 7-series. The stabilizers are from the M sport suspension and similar to the M550dX.

    A custom Alpina crossbar is installed at the rear.

    Wheels are 20-inch Alpina Classic wheels with 255/35 and 285/30 Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires.

    The D5 Turbo retains the brakes from the 530d.


    The D5 Turbo undergoes the same interior changes as usual with Alpina. Cluster gauges are custom Alpina with classic blue background combined with steering wheel trimmed in Lavalina leather. Additionally, interior trim is fine Alpina wood or piano lacquer with Alpina logos. A no-cost option are Alpina badges in the seats. Optionally, a custom interior in Lavalina leather can be ordered.

    For the exterior, the changes are limited to an Alpina Type 860 frontspoiler and Alpina badges on the rear. The D5 Turbo also has an Alpina Type 858 rearspoiler and diffusor. A non-cost option is the classic Alpina decor on sides of the car and frontspoiler. Available exterior colors include Alpina Blue and Alpina Green II.


    Acceleration from 0-100kph is 5,9 seconds.
    Topspeed is 256kph.
