2015 Bmw Alpina B6 Specs
Actually the 2015 bmw alpina b6 and the M6 grand coupe from BMW have a lot of similarity. Both of the Alpina B6 and BMW M6 grand Coupe use same engine pack that is V-8 4.4 liter twin-turbo engine. Alpina B6 use Alpina Bi-Turbo V8 that can produce 540 hp and 540 lb/ft of torque. Thanks to the Alpina Switch-Tronic system that give Alpine B6 8-speed automatic transmission so it can deliver impressive torque. However, Alpina B6 still adopts all-wheel drive system from BMW’s xDrive. Actually, BMW Alpina B6 and BMW M6 Grand Coupe almost have same performance. M6 with its same engine pack can produce more horsepower that up to 560 hp. Unfortunately, M6 only use a transmission of 7-speed dual-clutch so that it only can deliver 500 lb/ft of torque. Alpina B6 only needs 3.7 seconds to reach 60 mph. It is quicker than M6 to reach 60 mph. Moreover, if Alpina B6 runs without any restrictors in place, it can run up to 195 mph. On other hand, M6’s top speed is only 155 mph. Thus, my personal opinion, Alpina B6 has better performance than the BMW M6.
