The upcoming 2014 Alpina B6 Gran Coupe BiTurbo was recently spied testing wearing little camouflage and therefore giving us a great glimpse into how the almost production-ready car will look when it hits dealerships.
Based off the standard BMW 6-Series Gran Coupe, the 2014 Alpina B6 Gran Coupe BiTurbo will feature a 4.4-liter twin-turbocharged V8 engine pumping out an impressive 532hp and an incredible 538lb-ft of torque. However, some reports suggest that the car could receive as much as 550hp. Either way, the Alpina B6 will be significantly more powerful than the regular BMW 650i it’s based on which only delivers 450hp and 479lb-ft of torque.
The prototype captured in the following images showcases Alpinas new front end, wheel design, as well as its unique rear wing and tailpipes. While these changes certainly seem fairly minor on paper, as the following prototype shows, no true automotive enthusiasts would mistake the upcoming 2014 Alpina B6 Gran Coupe BiTurbo for the regular BMW 650i.
As you’d expect for a car of this calibre and quality, it will cost quite a bit more than the regular BMW 650i. However, whatever that price may be, having the extra exclusivity of owner an Alpina rather than a BMW surely outways any extra cost!
The 2014 Alpina B6 Gran Coupe BiTurbo is expected to be unveiled to the public at the IAA Frankfurt Auto Show 2013 in September.
