The BMW is preparing a minor facelift for the 6-Series lineup so it comes as little surprise that the ALPINA B6 Gran Coupe is also going under the knife.

The BMW is preparing a minor facelift for the 6-Series lineup so it comes as little surprise that the ALPINA B6 Gran Coupe is also going under the knife.

Recently caught at the Nürburgring, the facelifted model features a new front bumper and restyled headlights. Additional changes are limited but the car appears to feature revised taillights as well as all of the usual ALPINA upgrades.

Power will likely be provided by a twin-turbo 4.4-liter V8 engine that develops 540 bhp (402 kW) and 540 lb-ft (731 lb-ft) of torque. This should enable the xDrive variant to accelerate from 0-60 mph in 3.6 seconds and hit a top speed of 198 mph (318 km/h).
