The new BMW Alpina B6 was spy photographed

The new 2012 6-Series Coupe was unveiled by BMW in April at the Shanghai Auto Show, thus showing the entire Convertible version, while the only model left to complete the series is the M6, available in both coupe and open top forms. Alpina, BMW's longtime tuner seems to be readying a 2012 BMW 6-Series Coupe as the spy photographs in the picture gallery below show. Partially camouflaged, the car model was spotted in Munich. It could be noticed that the aero parts, such as the typical M-style front bumper featuring larger air vents, are missing and thus, they manage to minimize the possibility of it being the M6. Many enthusiasts have reasons to think that it could represent the upcoming Alpina B6. One of the reasons would be enhanced by the multispoke alloy wheels together with the dual round tail pipes on either corner, being typical styling features of Alpina's cars, completed by the subtle front and rear spoilers as well as the characteristic white decals. The B6 was launched in 2006 and incorporated Alpina's most recent take on the BMW 6-Series and was based on the previous generation E63 Coupe and E64 Convertible models. It integrated a modified 4.4-liter turbocharger V8 engine delivering 500HP. At the end of 2007, the B6 S was presented by the Buchloe-based tuner and was again based on the 650i, but its engine produced 530HP, due to the tweaked 4.4-liter force-fed V8. Its production continued until 2010. It very likely that the tuner is planning to use the V8 on its upcoming B6, most probably featuring a larger output as Alpina's B5 BiTurbo is fitted with the same 4.4-liter V8 engine which is to be found under the hood of the 2012 650i.
