Akrapovic has been gaining quite a reputation in BMW circles by becoming BMW’s exhaust partner for the BMW 1M coupe safety car and the BMW F10 M5 safety car. And now Alpina, the legendary BMW tuning outfit, has also turned to Akrapovic for its latest creation – the Alpina B6. It looks like a relationship which should continue for future Alpina models.

The Alpina B6 Akrapovic titanium exhaust system is 23kg lighter than the factory steel exhaust. This represents a 45% weight reduction.
