THE BMW ALPINA B6 BITURBO – CABRIO INDULGENCE AND COUPE CULTURE

DRIVE – FIRST CLASS PERFORMANCE AND ECONOMY

For ALPINA, a technology driven company, standstill is a foreign word. Since the introduction of the B7 Bi-Turbo, the engineers from Buchloe, Germany, have been continuously working on the details of the turbo charging and intercooler system.

Two turbo-chargers configured in parallel, each feeding one of the two cylinder banks, with specially developed large diameter exhaust-turbines allow this engine configura- tion to provide both exceptional power output and an abundance of torque over an especially broad rpm range while maintaining excellent throttle response at low … CONTINUED

The M Performance Parts party continues. Just minutes after our Live Gallery of the F20 125i equipped with M Performance Parts, BMW has published the full M Performance parts catalog to coincide with its official release/announcement at the 2012 Geneva Motorshow.

This collaboration with M engineers began just last year.

As of now, M Performance Parts are or will be available for these models:
