The 2015 BMW Alpina B6 xDrive Gran Coupe was exposed on Wednesday. The new super-coupe will make its North American debut next month at the New York car demonstrate and go on sale quickly following.
The Alpina B6 is based mostly on the 6-series Gran Coupe (and therefore features 4 doors, in spite of the identify). The tuning house added some aerodynamic touches to the currently-sleek BMW, such as a new front apron with protruding splitters, rear spoilers and a rear diffuser that houses the exhaust outlets.
Alpina tweaks the stock 4.4-liter, twin-turbocharged V8 to make 540 hp and 540 lb-ft of torque. That is up from the stock Gran Coupe’s 445 hp and 480 lb-ft, but power is nonetheless below the M6’s 560 hp. Sixty mph flies by in 3.6 seconds top speed is 198 mph.
The B6 will get an 8-velocity automatic transmission, which is smooth as silk in the 6-series, and all-wheel drive courtesy of BMW’s xDrive system. A tuned stainless-steel exhaust resonates from the tailpipes with a “deep but unobtrusive exhaust note.” That last statement reminds us of the Dinan-tuned BMW 5-series we drove earlier this 12 months.
The B6 gets Alpina’s twenty-inch “Classic” 21-spoke wheels, even though NACA ducts direct air to the 14.7-inch brake rotors.
As with all Alpina BMW versions, interior upgrades are also accessible. These are set up at Alpina’s factory in Buchloe, Germany.
The Alpina B6 xDrive Gran Coupe expenses $ 118,225, which includes destination and dealing with. The B6 is available as a unique-buy automobile delivery can be taken at the BMW Welt delivery center in Munich or at BMW’s Efficiency Center in Greer, S.C.
