With a lustrous Alpine Blue Metallic paint job on the exterior and full Merino Opal White leather on the interior, the new BMW Alpina B6 Car Club of America (CCA) edition is truly one of a kind. Hand finished by master crafts people at the Alpina factory, the one of a kind edition features headrests embossed with Alpina logos and a production plaque in the cockpit and under the hood designating this vehicle as one of a kind. To get this vehicle, you’ll have to take part in the CCA raffle by going to the club’s website, but you have to do it by September 29. The Alpina B6 Gran Coupe is a rare enough breed that you can arrange to drive and buy at Chapman BMW in Chandler.

Alpina B6 Offers High-performance Luxury

The Alpina B6 is an exclusive member of the BMW 6-Series lineup that offers high performance and the ultimate in luxury. With a 600-horsepower engine that powers the B6 from 0 to 60 mph in just 3.6 seconds, you’ll forget for a moment just how beautiful this vehicle is both inside and out. It’s sculpted for excellence in aerodynamics, offering an elegance that belies its muscular appearance and nimble handling. Step on the accelerator and you’ll unleash a spine-shaking 590 pound-feet of torque that will pin you back in your seat as you race to a top track speed of 199 mph. As you might expect, BMW just doesn’t deal in power, it also provides the ability to control that power. A neatly designed front apron and splitter helps ensure you can keep the vehicle on the road with supreme stability and precise handling.

Craftsmanship Key in All Areas

When you go to Chapman BMW to inspect the Alpina B6, take your time to notice the little things. Inspect the hand-stitched Lavalina steering wheel and notice the precision and meticulous detail that went into forming that integral part of the vehicle. Pay particular attention to the little treads on the door handles to improve grip, the rich wood trim accents in the interior and the soft blue illumination of the gauges on the dash. Slide into the rich leather seat and notice the feeling of comfort and sophistication as you glance around the dash, where all controls are expertly located within an easy reach. The Alpina B6 is the pinnacle of the BMW 6-Series, created for people who both enjoy driving thrills and the ability to enjoy the finer things in life.

Personalize Your Alpina With Package Options

BMW offers several package options to take your Alpina B6 to the next level. There are eight elegant trim choices, ranging from Myrtle Wood to Piano Black. Choose the special multi-countour seats and you’ll sink into the literal lap of luxury with the ability to adjust the position perfectly, including four-way lumbar support. Opt for the premium Bang and Olufsen sound system and you’ll enjoy 1200 watts of concert-quality sound delivered through 16 premium speakers, creating a mobile listening room that washes over you in a full range of frequencies. The Alpina B6, quite simply, is the height of both luxury and performance.

 

The “M” in the BMW auto lineup stands for Motorsports, but it could just as easily stand for “Mean,” “Magnificent,” “Masterful” or “Mind-blowing.” All the lessons learned over decades on the European race circuit go into the M-Class lineup and the new BMW M5 is a perfect example of bring a racing legacy to a street machine. As the quintessential sports sedan since 1984, the M5 continues to break the mold on performance and handling. New for this year is the M xDrive all-wheel drive system that allows the car to reach even higher than before when delivering a dynamic driving experience. “Thanks to M xDrive, the all-new BMW M5 can be piloted with the familiar blend of sportiness and unerring accuracy both on the racetrack and out on the open road, while also delighting drivers with its significantly enhanced directional stability and controllability right up to the limits of performance when driving in adverse conditions such as on wet roads or snow,” said Frank van Meel, Chairman of the M division of BMW. BMW is planning a special First Edition of the new M5 in a very limited production run of just 50 units for the U.S. Check in now with Chapman BMW to have a chance for one of those sure collector automobiles. Both the First Edition and normal production run will be available starting in the spring of 2018.

Powerful Twin Turbo Gets Overhaul

The already powerful 4.4L V8 Twin Turbo engine powering the BMW M5 got an overhaul in the off-season, upping its output to a peak 600 horsepower. As impressive as that number is, it pales in comparison to the 553 pound-feet of torque just a foot stomp away. Step on the accelerator and prepare to be pinned back in your seat as the M5 rockets off the line. You can also change the engine settings depending on your needs or road conditions with the touch of a button, going from basic to Sport or Sport plus for an even more punctual response to the gas pedal. New twin-scroll turbochargers now produce more injection pressure for more efficiency and bigger explosions in the internal combustion engine. More effective cooling units keep the engine operating under optimal temperatures, even in the extreme heat of the desert.

New Chassis a Benchmark for Driving Dynamics

A team of engineers undertook a challenge to deliver even more driving dynamics with increased stability, and boy did they deliver. The new BMW M5 has the precise, agile handling that drivers have come to expect from the automaker, but now drivers have more options than ever for fine-tuning the suspension and handling. Along with the M xDrive and 8-speed Steptronic transmission, BMW offers variable damper control, electronically adjustable shock absorbers and an adjustable steering setup. The end result is a phenomenally handling vehicle that is as much fun to look at as it is to drive. For a chance at the BMW M5 First Edition, head over to Chapman BMW today for more information.
