Alpina B6 Biturbo

The 2013 Alpina B6 Biturbo was tested with some usual statics shots followed by a high-speed performance test. The results did not come as a surprise to anyone. For example, according to the speedometer, the model was capable of reaching a top speed of 208 mph from stand still. Gebhardt, the driver, says his GPS indicated 204 mph. to be more precise, this means the top speed is a lot higher than the standard BMW M6 equipped with a Package from M Driver. This particular model is capable of reaching 189 mph.


The Alpina specifications indicate 199 mph. from the mechanical point of view the 2013 Alpina B6 Biturbo is different from the M6 thanks to the 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8 engine, a unit that uses Mahle pistons. Beside this, it also features a high-performance cooling system, a titanium exhaust system offered by Akrapovic and it sends the power to the wheels through a revised 8-speed automatic transmission.


It is a little strange, but the B6 Biturbo Coupe produces less power with 533 horsepower, but more torque of 700 Nm in comparison with the M6 that delivers 552 horsepower and 680 Nm of torque. This amount of power enables the car to accelerate from 0 to 62 mph in 4.4 seconds and in the same time, the M6 reaches the same speed in 4.2 seconds. The results of the testing are very clear.
