BMW Alpina has unwrapped the 2016 model year B6 Gran Coupe with a revamped 600-horsepower engine.

The new BMW Alpina B6 Gran Coupe will be available only as an all-wheel drive vehicle in the US and will become available to order starting in March 2015. The price hasn't been announced but it's expected to be around $120,000.

The new B6 Gran Coupe has an even more powerful appearance thanks to a new, more aggressive front spoiler and apron which enclose the subtly-changed BMW kidney grill and shape the transition to the new hood with character chines.

The 4.4-liter V8 twin-turbo V8 engine now delivers 600 horsepower at 6,000 rpm and maximum torque of 590 lb-ft at only 3,500 rpm. The increase in output of 60 hp over the 2015 model has been achieved through extensive rework of the air intake ducting and air filter housing, with enhancements to the fuel supply system. The 8-speed automatic transmission has been adapted to the increased power and torque of the modified engine.

The B6 Gran Coupe features a full stainless steel exhaust system with Alpina trademark elliptical twin tailpipes. The character of the deep exhaust note is prominent but not intrusive. Active exhaust valves allow balance between enthusiasm and comfort on long journeys. The driver can influence the sound experience using the Driving Dynamics Control button. In Comfort Mode, the exhaust valve is closed up to 2,500 rpm, and in Sport Mode the valve is permanently open.

Coupling the BMW xDrive intelligent all-wheel drive system with an Alpina-developed performance calibration means the new B6 Gran Coupe delivers heroic straight-line performance. With a 0-60 mph acceleration time of only 3.6 seconds, it is the fastest-accelerating BMW Alpina model ever developed. The new B6 Gran Coupe is capable of an electronically limited maximum speed of 200 mph.

The Alpina sport suspension utilizes BMW's advanced electronic suspension technologies including Dynamic Damper Control (adjustable, adaptive shock absorbers) and Adaptive Drive (Active Roll Stabilization), which work together with the fully-variable torque distribution of the all-wheel drive system to achieve very neutral, agile driving dynamics.

The powerful brake system now features blue calipers with Alpina lettering on the front axle with brake discs measuring 374 x 36 mm on the front and 370 x 24 on the rear (increased from 345 x 24 mm).

The standard equipment level has been extended to include attractive features such as Full LED Adaptive Headlights with High Beam Assistant, and a discrete new B6 model designation in the B-pillar in high-gloss Shadow Line.
