The top speed should be at least 311 km/h. That is the offical one from Alpina.

The 0-200 km/h was not that impressive, but still very fast.

When AMS did a Nardo test on B7 they reached 314km/h , if I remember correct.

Andy B had a photo of the B5 'maxed out' when he was at Donnington - the speedo was right of the end of the dial :)

I'll try to get hold of it to share ....

How on earth did he manage to MAX a B5 at Donington? The main straight is reasonably long, but not THAT long, with the chicane in the middle!

Sorry may not have phrased that clearly enough ! When he was at Donnington he had a print out of a photo with him.

We did however manage 110mph in the Roadster S on the hill down to craners !

Craners is awesome, but must be a tad unnerving at that speed with no downforce! You REALLY don't want to go off just there...

I bought the issue with the Nardo test today. I don't really like AMS's new layout, think the old version was better. Also, all the Nardo pictures were blurry and we did not get to see the interiour of any car.

Here are the top speeds according to the test:

B5: 319
EV12: 350
Carlsson CLS: 324
575 Imola: 325 (kind of disappointing comp. to standard car...?)
GT Mansory: 317
S4 Cab MTM: 311
GT2 9ff: 355
Techart turbo Cab: 334

However, I'm really glad that AMS keeps on doing this test! mmmmmm

Thanks Erik! Wow what is done o that S4 CONVERTIBLE...
No worries Gustav!

The S4 has a 4163cm3 supercharged V8 with 450hp and 560NM, top speed is 307km/h with the top down!

0-300 in 59s, 6,3 seconds slower than the B5 at 52,7s. Which is a Touring! lovelove

So a B5 Touring ran 317km/h around Nardo???

If so, that would imply probably around 320-325 on the flat, so probably around 330 for a sedan...?

I was just thinking on the same lines as you Hythe.. :)

I always knew though that the E V12 would be very very fast..
