The B12 5.7 was introduced in 1995 and was based on the new BMW 7 Series (E38). Using the 750i/iL as the base, the B12 uses a modified version of the newly introduced BMW M73 V12 engine. The modifications included increased displacement to 5.7-litres, a modified air intake system, new cylinder heads, and higher compression Mahle pistons. These modifications allowed the engine to have a power output of 285 kW (387 PS; 382 hp) and 560 N⋅m (413 lb⋅ft) of torque. The engine was mated to a 5-speed ZF automatic transmission featuring a new gear change system called the "Switch-Tronic" system by the manufacturer. The system allowed the driver to put the car in a manual shift mode in which gears were changed via buttons on the back of the steering wheel.

Exterior changes include a front chin spoiler with Alpina lettering, 20-inch multi-spoke alloy wheels, choice of new colours and optional Alpina pinstriping.

The interior had anthracite leather with contrast stitching as standard equipment along with wood trim and an Alpina instrument cluster. It was customisable according to the customer specifications. The interior also had a plaque signifying the production number of the car.

Performance figures include a 0-100 km/h (62 mph) acceleration time of 6.4 seconds and a top speed of 280 km/h (174 mph). Production of the B12 5.7 continued till 1998 before it was replaced by the B12 6.0 which was based on the facelift 7 Series. A total of 202 cars were made.
