The M badge. A blue and red symbol to the automotive world that says “I am part of the vehicular elite”. You strive for the fastest, the best, the most exclusive, and that is why you have coughed up the cash to wear the badge that few others are able to command. But what if, terrifyingly, almost every new model of BMW had this badge plastered to the trunk lid? Not only would the brand you know and love become as diluted as the top shelf vodka at your favorite nightclub, but the car you once thought of as being exclusive and unique now just blends in with the rest of the pack. But what if, there was something more…bespoke? Something that looked so unique, that it would confuse some people to think you were driving a custom built vehicle? Enter the 2015 Alpina B6. The ultimate form of 6 series expression, without any of the nuances that come with a modern M car.
It seems that today, all performance cars are produced as dual clutch, rock hard, track carving monsters enveloped in a competitive game of numbers irrelevant to anything that their owners will actually do. This automotive quest of numbers, though impressive on a track, creates a sea of extremely fast cars, that are unbearably uncomfortable. With a 0-60 time of 3.7 seconds thanks to 540 HP and 540 Ft-lbs of torque, the Alpina flies through the quarter mile in 12.1 seconds at 116 mph. So it’s fast. Really fast. Perfect. But where the B6 takes a unique turn, is the rest of the delivery. Sure you could have that dual clutch transmission that shifts in 0.5 of a second, but lurches the rest of the time, and a suspension made of granite designed specifically to crush a Nurburgring lap record, but is all that really worth the annoyance when using your car… as a car?
Where the B6 will take you, is a forgotten world. A world where speed does not mean discomfort. A world where suspension modes equal Comfort, and Comfort Plus. Where you get a buttery smooth automatic transmission with, yes, a torque converter. Sure there is a Sport and Sport plus mode for when you want to throw it through the twisty turns and hammer through the 8 available gears using the steering wheel mounted shift buttons, but for the rest of the time, enjoy the heated and cooled massage seats, heated steering wheel, panoramic sunroof and Bang and Olufsen sound system, all while accelerating to a top speed of 198 Mph. Your body, mind and soul will thank you for not slamming yourself around like the open tailgate of a 1987 Ford F-150. So have a seat, relax, and let the B6 show you what that little Alpina badge is all about.
