ALPINA, the company famous for modifying BMWs, has just recently shown the magic wand to the M6 Gran Coupe, and calls it the 2016 BMW ALPINA B6 xDrive Gran Coupe. Apart from having a much simpler and shorter name, it is safe to say that the M6 is already bonkers, but the technicians at ALPINA have given it even more power and torque. The very futuristic 4.4 litre Bi-Turbo V8 engine now develops 600bhp of maximum power at 6,000rpm and a ridiculous peak torque figure of 800Nm at 3,500rpm!
The BMW M4 Convertible shares the styling with its open-top 4 Series siblings. At the same time, the M4 Convertible's styling cues - including a signature power dome for the bonnet, eye-catching exterior mirrors in twinstalk style and flared front and rear wheel arches bulging over forged lightalloy wheels with mixed tyres in 18-inch (optional 19-inch) format - all identify it clearly as a member of the BMW M3/M4 model family.
BMW is working on the next-generation X6 crossover and will launch this luxurious SUV after the new X4 crossover arrives next year. The exact launch timing for the new SUV's is under curtains, but the new X6 SUV is likely to make its global debut at the Moscow motor show next year.
