An M2 and an M240i are also up for grabs.
There is no denying the Alpina B6 Gran Coupe is one of the most desirable BMWs currently available as it pretty much offers the complete package: beautiful exterior design, immense power, fairly practical, and a luxurious interior. It’s sporty whenever you want it, or a relaxing cruiser to eat up the miles without breaking a sweat. To celebrate the model’s continuous success since the launch of the Alpina version in 2014, the two companies have joined forces yet again to create a one-of-kind B6 Gran Coupe.
Known by its full (and rather lengthy) name as the BMW Alpina B6 xDrive Gran Coupe BMW CCA Edition, the unique car was built specifically for an upcoming raffle organized by the BMW Car Club of America. It wears Alpina’s signature Blue Metallic paint with a lovely white leather interior where there are numerous piano black accents.
To make it stand out furthermore, the four-door BMW grand tourer has received a handmade silver inscription with a high-gloss lacquer finish adorning the center console. Even the steering wheel was hand-finished and comes with white stitching to complement the seat upholstery. For the same reason, there’s white piping on the floor and trunk mats. Rounding off the changes on the inside is the Alpina logo embossed onto the headrests.
As a special touch, a one-off plaque has been installed in the engine bay and it contains the signatures of Burkard, Andreas and Florian Bovensiepen - none other than the father and son team behind Alpina. The B6 Gran Coupe features the same biturbo 4.4-liter V8 engine with 600 horsepower and 590 pound-feet (800 Newton-meters) of torque, which is enough for a 0-60 mph (0-96 kph) run in 3.6 seconds and a maximum speed of 198 mph (324 kph).
Another ace up its sleeve is the one-piece exhaust system coming from Akrapovič. It’s entirely made out of titanium to shave off more than 15 pounds (6.8 kilograms) over the standard setup. It measures around 12 feet (3.6 meters) from the downpipes to the quad tailpipes at the back where there are carbon fiber tips.
The bespoke Alpina B6 Gran Coupe featuring some goodies you can’t get on the U.S.-spec model costs more than $130,000 and is only a part of the story as the raffle organized by BMW CCA will also include an M2 as the first prize and an M240i as the main prize. For every 5,000 tickets sold, another M240i will be added to the raffle, while special drawing prizes will sweeten the pot even more.
The lucky winners of the raffle set to be organized in Georgia are going to be selected in October. Full details available at the source link below.
