The latest Alpina masterpiece, based on the latest BMW 6 Series convertible, revealed in full at IAA.
The Alpina BMW B6 Biturbo offers luxury, comfort, and speed in big lumps. But what sets is apart from the other hundred cars that do the same, maybe even better, is the exclusivity and feel of the Alpina badge.
The traditional Alpina body kit is still recognizable, even though it now comes with up to the minute features such as front spoiler with the integrated carbon fibre front splitter, rear diffuser and the elliptical shape double exhausts. Those exhausts are, by the way, made by Akrapovic from high-strength titanium and the sound they make after 3000 rpm complements the rumble of the B6’s V8 perfectly.
Speaking of the Alpina B6’s V8 biturbo engine, this all-aluminum unit makes 507hp (373kW) and 700 Nm of torque. It comes with teh Alpina SWITCH-TRONIC 8-speed Sport Automatic Transmission, and together they enable the 6er cabrio to go from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.8s, and reach a top speed of 311km/h.
Alpina B6 Convertible features the latest electronic suspension technologies and comes with Drive Performance Control (electronically adjustable dampers) and Dynamic Drive (active roll stabilisation) as standard. It also comes with 20″ ALPINA CLASSIC wheels, with MICHELIN PILOT SUPER SPORT tyres in the dimensions 255/35 ZR20 front and 285/30 ZR20 rear. High performance brakes with discs of size 374mm front and 345mm rear are also at hand.
It is hard to resist this perfect blend of style, performance, luxury and coolness. But you should wait and see the new M6 Cabrio first before writing the check!
