Woodcliff Lake, NJ – September 8 , 2017 3:00 pm EDT / 12:00 p m PDT … Introduced in 2014 in collaboration between BMW and ALPINA, the four-door Coupé with xDrive has been widely recognized for its aesthetic beauty, epic driving performance and balanced handling.
Powered by a bespoke 4.4 liter V8 Twin-Turbo engine which delivers 600 bHP at 6000 rpm and a maximum torque of 590 lb-ft at only 3500 rpm, the BMW ALPINA B6 xDrive Gran Coupe offers supercar like performance. Accelerating from 0 to 60 mph takes just 3.6 seconds and a top speed of 198 mph can be reached.
The sleek silhouette of the four-door body shape is both sophisticated and sportive, unique exterior ALPINA design elements set distinguishing accents, such as iconic ALPINA CLASSIC wheels, and provide aerodynamic functionality – all in one stylish and elegant package.
The unique blend of jaw dropping performance, bespoke luxury and sublime comfort means the BMW ALPINA B6 xDrive Gran Coupe has become the choice of automotive connoisseurs who are attracted to its unique pedigree.
Together with BMW Car Club of America and BMW North America, ALPINA has decided to celebrate this success by creating truly one of a kind – the BMW ALPINA B6 xDrive Gran Coupe BMW CCA Edition.
Finished by master craftsmen at the ALPINA manufactory in Bavaria, this BMW ALPINA B6 xDrive Gran Coupe exhibits bespoke features which highlight its performance luxury character and the ALPINA ethos, making it truly-one-of-a-kind.

One Of A Kind.
The BMW ALPINA B6 xDrive Gran Coupe BMW CCA Edition is finished in a timeless and contemporary paint and upholstery combination – the exclusive ALPINA Blue Metallic perfectly offsetting the luxurious Merino Opal White Full Merino Leather interior.
ALPINA Piano Black trim features a special BMW CCA Edition silver inscription on the center console, which has been painstakingly handmade in a one-off production with a high-gloss lacquer finish.
The hand-finished ALPINA LAVALINA steering wheel features white bespoke stitching, which along with the floor and trunk mats with bespoke white piping, match the Merino Opal White Full Merino Leather interior. The headrests are subtly embossed with the ALPINA logo.
Besides the customary interior ALPINA production plaque with BMW CCA Edition 01/01 inscription, a truly unique production plaque can be found in the engine bay. This features the signatures of the Burkard, Andreas and Florian Bovensiepen – the father and son team behind the ALPINA family business.
The BMW ALPINA B6 xDrive Gran Coupe BMW CCA Edition’s titanium exhaust system is a technical masterpiece. Engineered as a complete one-piece exhaust system stretching over a length of approximately 12 ft from the downpipes to the rear tailpipes, it is made entirely of titanium and saves over 15 lbs of weight. The two twin tailpipes are finished with a carbon fiber trim.
