No, he's got a point. Our cars make peak hp at 5800 rpm and redline at 7000 rpm I believe. That would mean the Alpina makes peak hp at an even lower 5500 rpm assuming the same redline. My guess is they're tapering off boost a little early to promote longevity, and/or the turbos just can't breathe up there.
