The German tuner Alpina specialized in modifying BMWs has recently revealed the 2012 B6 Bi-Turbo Coupe, based on the new generation of the BMW 6-Series.

According to the aftermarket specialists at Alpina, the 2012 Alpina B6 Bi-Turbo Coupe has been fitted with a new aerodynamic body kit which comes with a new front spoiler with a built-in carbon fiber splitter and a revised rear spoiler which can be fitted with an optional rear wing. Alpina has also improved the handling of the B6 Bi-Turbo Coupe and a first step into doing just that was fitting the model with Drive Performance Control and Dynamic Drive as standard, where the first one is standing for electronically adjustable dampers and the second one is active roll stabilization.

Alpina says that its new 2012 B6 Bi-Turbo Coupe is powered by an aluminum made 4.4 liter twin-turbo V8 engine which is developing a total output of 533 horsepower and it has a peak torque of 700 Nm (516 lb-ft), which means that the coupe version is 33 horsepower more powerful than the cabrio variant presented earlier this year at the Frankfurt Motor Show. The engine is mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission and the vehicle can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.4 seconds, before hitting its top speed of 320 km/h.
