The BMW Alpina B6 xDrive Gran Coupe is available in just a single trim. This high-performance four-door luxury sedan makes use of a 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8 to produce 591 horsepower and 590 lb-ft of torque. Along with all-wheel-drive and an Alpina-tuned eight-speed automatic transmission, a 0-60 mph time of 3.6-seconds is achievable.
Standard equipment is generous and includes 20-inch Alpina wheels, bespoke chromed quad-exhaust outlets, Alpina exterior badging, LED headlights, and automatic wipers. The cabin will be familiar to anyone that has seen the inside of a regular Gran Coupe. In the B6, Alpina badging replaces the BMW roundel on the unique steering wheel. There are also bespoke blue gauges, and an exclusive Alpina trim is available. Four-zone automatic climate control, a 16-speaker Harman Kardon sound system and power and heated front seats are all standard. Safety tech includes front and rear parking sensors and a rearview camera, while a full suite of driver-assist technologies is optionally available by specifying the Driver Assistance Package.
Four distinct packages are available: the $500 Parking Assistance Package, the $1,700 Driving Assistance Package, the $1,200 Driving Assistance Plus Package and the Executive Package for $2,200.
The Parking Assistance Package adds nifty side and top-view cameras, with crisp images displayed on the central screen. The Driving Assistance Package bundles together a suite of driving aids namely; a head-up display, forward collision warning, pedestrian detection, low-speed collision mitigation and lane departure warning. Driver Assistance Plus further packs on adaptive cruise control, which can be used in stop-and-go traffic to reduce driver fatigue.
If more luxury is on the agenda, the Executive Package is likely to entice. It adds ventilated seats with active bolsters, heating for the steering wheel and rear seats, controls trimmed in ceramic and a power-operated sunshade for the rear window.
