5 Things You Need to Know About the 2016 BMW ALPINA B6 xDrive Gran Coupe
Already for sale in Europe, the 2016 BMW ALPINA B6 xDrive Gran Coupe will be coming to America in June. Before you visit it comes to the USA, here are five things you need to know:
1.) The B6 is handcrafted. Its body is manufactured in the BMW 6 Series factory (Plant Dingolfing) and hand-finished with the remaining ALPINA components at the ALPINA factory in Buchloe, Germany.
2.) BMW has improved front end dynamics. A newly engineered front spoiler and fascia surround a subtly-revised BMW kidney grill gives the B6 xDrive Gran Coupe a more powerful appearance.
3.) You’re going to hear it roar. The 4.4 liter V8 Bi-Turbo V-8 engine delivers 600 horsepower at 6,000 rpm and maximum torque of 590 lb-ft at only 3,500 rpm- a 60 hp increase over the 2015 model.
4.) You’ll get where you’re going quickly. The B6 has a 0 – 60 mph acceleration time of only 3.6 seconds making it is the fastest-accelerating BMW ALPINA model ever developed. The new B6 xDrive Gran Coupe is capable of a maximum speed of 200 mph (electronically limited).
5.) Options have become standard. The standard equipment level has been extended to include attractive features such as Full LED Adaptive Headlights with High Beam Assistant, and a discrete new B6 model designation in the B-pillar in high-gloss Shadow Line.
