BMW has taken the wraps off the 2016 ALPINA B6 xDrive Gran Coupe.

Looking instantly recognizable, the model features a new front fascia with a modestly revised grille. The car also has a modified front spoiler, blue brake calipers and a new hood. Additional changes are limited but there's new B6 badging on the B-pillars and LED Adaptive Headlights with High Beam Assistant are now standard.

Bigger changes occur under the hood as the twin-turbo 4.4-liter V8 engine has been massaged to produce 600 bhp (447 kW) and 590 lb-ft (799 Nm) of torque - an increase of 60 bhp (45 kW) and 50 lb-ft (67 Nm) over the 2015 model. The engine is connected to an ALPINA-tuned eight-speed automatic transmission and an all-wheel drive system which enables the car to accelerate from 0-60 mph in 3.6 seconds before hitting an electronically-limited top speed of 200 mph (321 km/h).
