2015 BMW Alpina B6

European market has two options for getting high performance BMW cars. First is M model from German carmaker, which is pretty usual. And many buyers have been turning lately to Alpina vehicles from BMW. Alpina is a tuner car, but closely connected with BMW. Officially, it is technically independent, but we can notice some similarities between these two, so it is obvious that these two are using same concepts. However, so far in US market we had no chance to pick between Alpine and M-class. Up to now, there was only one Alpine model in North American market, and it was B7. For the 2014 New York car show we expect second – 2015 BMW Alpina B6 xDrive Gran Coupe.
