The new 2015 BMW Alpina B6 xDrive Gran Coupe offers more performance than the 650i xDrive, but more luxury than the M6 Gran Coupe. Alpina, by the way, is a 3rd-party high-performance BMW tuner, working so closely with BMW that its cars are sold in BMW dealerships.
Drivers who love engaging their left foot will rejoice that M6 performance variants can be had with a 6-speed manual transmission in lieu of the 7-speed double-clutch automatic. For just 100 buyers, there is a limited Frozen Brilliant White Edition convertible. All 2014 BMW 6 Series models receive updates to their navigation systems.
New 2013 6 Series Gran Coupes debuted in spring, 2012 offering the same features and powertrains as the coupes and convertibles, and the 650i models' TwinPower turbo V8 is upgraded to 445 horsepower and 480 lb-ft of torque, 45 more horses and 30 more lb-ft than in 2012. The M6 Coupe and Convertible boast BMW's most powerful production engine ever, a 560-hp 4.4-liter TwinPower turbo V8, up five hp with the same 500 lb-ft of torque as the V10 it replaces, and 25 percent more fuel efficient.
The 2012 BMW 6 Series is about as all-new as an all-new model can be. Aside from an overwhelming list of new features and technologies, the 6 Series lineup will now include a 6-cylinder turbo engine option (640i Coupe and 640i Convertible) and available all-wheel drive (650i xDrive Coupe and 650i xDrive Convertible). Later we'll see a high-performance M6 model and a first-ever 4-door 6 Series in the spirit of the Mercedes-Benz CLS and Audi A7.
The 2015 BMW 6 Series slots between the 5 and 7 Series cars with a coupe, a convertible, and a 4-door that BMW calls a "Gran Coupe," but we all know is really just a sleek sedan. Sleekness is all part of the game though, as the 6 Series is designed to offer eye-catching style over practical transportation. All three models offer plenty of style and performance, with engines ranging from a turbocharged 6-cylinder to a couple different V8 models. With roots that trace back to the late 1970s, the 3rd-generation 6 Series remains a leader in grand touring, even against such tough competitors as the Jaguar XK, Mercedes-Benz E-Class Coupe and Audi S5.

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10
"This is the kind of car that can be summed up in one word...excellent. From the thickly bolstered steering wheel, to the superior B&O sound, to the large trunk, to the exceptional seats this car is excellent. You'll read/hear "this is not a sports car", I'm a previous 2013 Audi RS5 and BMW M3 (E46) owner it's at least as much a sports car as they are. I'm also a previous BMW 3/5/and especially 7 series owner, not to mention Mercedes, Lincoln, etc. it's more luxurious than any of them to say the least. The ability to transform this car from all out beast to docile touring machine with the push of a button is phenomenal. Can you put two adults in the rear seats? Yes, will they want to take a cross country trip back there? No. However the same can be said of many luxury sedans. Reviews point to the weight of this car as if it's something bad. Is this car heavy? Yes. I personally prefer the weighted feeling of the car; the fact that it is endowed with technology that totally defeats the weightiness and allows you the to take windy roads like you're on rails is again...excellent. While this is easily one of the best looking cars I've ever seen, one can only really appreciate it from the driver's seat. If you're considering this car, you owe it to yourself to test drive it. Let me warn you before you do though, there's a very good chance that you'll be going to the bank shortly thereafter."
