When it comes to BMWs, the 2012 6 series has been the aftermarket tuners' choice at the 2011 Frankfurt IAA. Two of these debuting at the show are the Alpina B6 Biturbo and the Hamann 6 series. Info and galleries are below.

We've updated the info below with a video highlighting the Alpina B6 and its Akrapovic exhaust system.


Video: Alpina B6 Akrapovic Exhaust System


The Alpina B6 Akrapovic titanium exhaust system is 23kg lighter than the factory steel exhaust.

This represents a 45% weight reduction over the stock system.







Alpina B6 Biturbo


PRESS RELEASE + Expand
Dynamics and elegance perfectly matched. Exciting details and luxury materials, combined with thrilling performance and fantastic sound.

High-performance convertibles are automobiles for real connoisseurs. They combine characteristics whose sole purpose is to give driver and passengers maximum
pleasure.

In doing so they combine the best qualities of their related species, so that they may be experienced even more directly and tangibly with the top down. The beguiling performance, powerful drive and fantastic sound of super sports cars. The elegance, dynamics and attractive lines of grand coupés. The luxury, comfort and cruising ability of refined luxury sedans.

Generally speaking, qualities that have long characterised ALPINA automobiles. It therefore comes as no surprise to learn that the new BMW ALPINA B6 Bi-Turbo Convertible offers an extraordinary sensory experience.

POWERTRAIN

First class performance and economy

The all-aluminium V8 power plant produces 507hp (373kW) at a moderate 5500rpm, with a maximum torque of 700Nm between 3000rpm - 4750rpm. Two turbo-chargers configured in parallel, each feeding one of the two cylinder banks, with specially developed large diameter exhaust-turbines allow this engine configuration to provide both exceptional power output and an abundance of torque over an especially broad rpm range while maintaining excellent throttle response at low rpm.

The comprehensive high-performance cooling system comprises an indirect inter-cooling system (air-to-water/water-to-air) with short intake tracts and increased inter-cooler flow. The systems excellent thermodynamic efficiency is guaranteed by a large-volume low-temperature inter-cooler radiator, as well as two water-to-air inter-coolers placed close to the engine. High-performance MAHLE pistons are designed specifically to deal with temperatures and pressures associated with up to 1.0 bar charging and the engine’s 9.2:1 nominal compression ratio. Altogether this results in an impressive specific output of 115.3 horsepower (85kW) per litre and a mean total compression of 20.1 bar.

Direct injection and Double-VANOS contribute to the B6 Bi-Turbo’s class-leading consumption and emission figures: 10.9l/100km (25.9mpg) and 255g/km CO2 (Combined, measured according to ECE Norm).

TRANSMISSION – Eight-Speed All-Rounder

Adapted and tested in co-operation with ZF, the advanced SWITCH-TRONIC 8-speed Sport Automatic Transmission sets benchmarks. With ALPINA’s philosophy the guiding credo, engineers have spent thousands of development and test hours ensuring that no other performance automatic transmission comes close to providing this level of both comfort and performance.

In the Automatic Shift Mode (D) the blend of eight speeds and plenty of torque makes for unparalleled comfortable gear changes with no noticeable interruption to the delivery of power – only the accompanying acoustics and the dynamic rev counter provide feedback as to the workings of the transmission. 700Nm of torque means the B6 Bi-Turbo excels at cruising along at speed in a high gear at minimum rpm, benefiting both consumption and comfort.

Using the Sport Shift Mode (S) a completely different character emerges: the transmission is crisp and unmistakably immediate. The innovative single-cylinder fadeout (known as 'Einzelzylinderausblendung‘ in German) enables super quick up-shifts which take just milliseconds. Depending on the load on the transmission, the injection of fuel into a given cylinder is interrupted for a fraction of a second, creating the required reduction in torque that the automatic transmission needs for the up-shift. The advantages versus the typical method of timing retardation are noticeably quicker shifts, improved thermo-dynamic efficiency due to reduced exhaust temperatures and lower fuel consumption. Each up-shift is accompanied by a deep back-pressure burble.

The SWITCH-TRONIC buttons, for use in the Manual Shift Mode (M), are ergonomically and unobstrusively positioned on the back of the steering wheel, and allow the driver to take complete control of the transmission. The system allows for multi-simultaneous down-shifts in milliseconds, hereby the transmission will skip several gears depending on engine loads and rpm. In this manner the 8-speed Sport Automatic Transmission with ALPINA SWITCH-TRONIC reveals itself as extremely multi-faceted, providing the right shift characteristic for any and all situations.

The Automatic Up-Shift function means that the transmission will up-shift into a higher gear once a certain rpm threshold has been passed in the current gear. In certain driving situations this may not be desired, for example during especially sporty driving or for example when encountering multiple tight hair-pin corners. The simultaneous selection of either Sport, Sport+ or DSC OFF Mode using the Drive Performance Control button and the selection of the M Shift Mode will deactivate the automatic up-shift function. The transmission will hold the selected gear up to maximum rpm’s (electronically limited) and will not automatically up-shift into a higher gear.

The intelligent coupling of state-of-the-art engine and transmission technologies give the

B6 Bi-Turbo stunning performance figures: 0-100km/h in 4.8s, and a top speed of 311km/h.


CHASSIS & SUSPENSION

Dynamic Comfort


High-performance convertibles place special demands on their chassis - requiring distinct levels of comfort for easy cruising, safe and neutral handling at top speed, and light-footed agility for the moments in between. In order to do justice to this broad spectrum of requirements, the new B6 Bi-Turbo Convertible features the latest electronic suspension technologies and comes with Drive Performance Control (electronically adjustable dampers) and Dynamic Drive (active roll stabilisation) as standard.

This system has been artfully calibrated by ALPINA and is tied into other system parameters controlling steering assistance, torque cushioning and the Dynamic Stability Control system. Featuring pronounced Comfort+, Comfort, Sport and Sport+ modes, the B6 Bi-Turbo transitions effortlessly from cultivated luxury convertible to thorough-bred sports car.

Specific springs, increased front wheel camber and a subtle adjustment of the toe-in in conjunction with a 20” wheel-tyre combination all serve to produce a very agile chassis set-up. The lightweight 20” ALPINA CLASSIC wheels, with MICHELIN PILOT SUPER SPORT tyres in the dimensions 255/35 ZR20 front and 285/30 ZR20 rear, contribute significantly to the direct handling and precise steering. Conventional tyres are used to promote ride comfort.


DESIGN

DESIGN EXTERIOR – Exciting Details, Functional Aerodynamics

The BMW 6 Series is marked by an elegant and dynamic design as well as excellent aerodynamic properties. ALPINA gives the new B6 Bi-Turbo a unique, powerful appearance which elegantly underlines the sporty character of this beautiful convertible.

The exterior components that influence the aerodynamic properties of the B6 Bi-Turbo are not just there for aesthetic reasons – their design is subject primarily to functional premises and plays a considerable role in achieving both the top speed and in reducing fuel consumption. Take for example the front spoiler with the integrated carbon fibre front splitter. It causes more air to flow over and around the vehicle, simultaneously reducing the air masses which flow underneath by more than 10%. This leads to a noticeable stabilisation of the front-end at high speeds and plays a role in reducing any tendencies to understeer. The front spoiler, in conjunction with the rear spoiler, ensures that the B6 Bi-Turbo is very well ‘tethered’ overall. Uplift on the front axle is reduced by 14% and tends towards a value of zero on the rear axle from a speed of 150 km/h onwards.

In addition to an improvement in the CX values, these components also ensure the effective flow of air to various cooler groups, such as the inter-coolers and engine cooling system. One special detail: the high-performance brakes, with a diameter of 374mm front and 345mm rear, are additionally supplied with cooling air by a specially constructed NACA air intake on the front underbody.

The double tailpipes, with a slightly elliptical shape in typical ALPINA style, are designed in titanium and carry small logos that make discreet reference to the origins of the ALPINA exhaust system made by Akrapovic. The rear valence, which attractively and elegantly frames the outlet of the tailpipes, additionally integrates the features of a diffuser.

DESIGN INTERIOR – Master Craftsmanship, Exclusive Personalisation

Blue ALPINA instruments with high resolution information display with black panel LCD technology. A sport steering wheel, hand-stitched in LAVALINA leather. Blue illuminated entry sills with logo. Or the classic ALPINA exotic wood equipment in myrtle – an exclusive burl wood of the laurel family, which grows only on the Pacific coast of the USA. These are just some of the elegant features of the interior that point to the exclusive origins of the B6 Bi-Turbo Cabrio.

Naturally, no limits are set on the personal predilections of customers. From the paintwork to the interior trims to the colour of the upholstery – everything offered by the extensive BMW and ALPINA equipment range is available. Seldom does a BMW ALPINA leave Buchloe without making use of the virtually limitless personalisation options offered by the ALPINA Manufaktur. Our philosophy dictates that the customer can design his or her own individual interior – made by skilled craftsmen in our leather workshop.

Titanium Exhaust System made by Akrapovic

Special consideration was given to the development of the exhaust system in the B6 Bi-Turbo Convertible. A person’s sense of hearing is particularly heightened when driving with the top down, almost craving for a fantastic sound experience. For the first time, ALPINA has collaborated with Akrapovic on the development of a lightweight exhaust system made from high-strength titanium.

Faithful to the guiding principle of ‘form follows function’, the entire system is noted not only for its acoustics and appearance, but also for its technical refinements. In addition to a weight-saving of 50% compared to the conventional use of stainless steel, the exhaust system also boasts impressive technical details. The engineers from ALPINA and Akrapovic have achieved quite a feat, managing to retain a diameter of 2 x 70mm throughout the entire length of the exhaust system, despite the tricky ‘packaging’. In conjunction with further design refinements, exhaust back-pressure is reduced to an absolute minimum.

In interaction with the powerful engine, the exhaust system generates a backdrop of deep, sonorous eight-cylinder sound – powerful, sporty, but never obtrusive, due to intelligent, controllable exhaust valves. These offer the driver a special degree of influence over the sound experience, and can be controlled using the Drive Performance Control. In Comfort+ and Comfort Mode the valves are closed, opening at 3000rpm, regardless of the selected gear. In 1st and 2nd gear decisive use of the accelerator will cause the valves to open (at approx. 60% load) and the B6 Bi-Turbo to elicit a special symphony from the tailpipes during dynamic bursts of acceleration. As befits the character of the B6 Bi-Turbo in Sport and Sport+ Modes, the exhaust valves remain open at all times.

Hamann 6 Series

PRESS RELEASE + Expand
The HAMANN refinement program for the BMW 6 Series Cabriolet

For the second generation of the BMW 6 Series Cabriolets, HAMANN-Motorsport will present fascinating customization options at the 64th International Motor Show, the IAA in Frankfurt, Germany The difference between the standard production and HAMANN's customization can be seen at first glance: More dynamic, more style, and clearly more exclusivity, this is how the HAMANN Cabriolet presents itself when compared with the production model.

However that is not all - HAMANN can do much more than make a car look "pretty".

The tuning specialist from Laupheim, Germany has been developing and producing individualized BMW automobiles since 1986. The HAMANN engineers have been benefiting from hundreds of successfully introduced motor sport applications. The experience gained is the base for the development of HAMANN Performance Products. The result: A powerful performance enhancement, distinctive 22-inch alloy rims, stylish modifications of the interior, and aerodynamic components that reduce the car's lift.

HAMANN perfectly attunes the individual components of the chassis package already at the design stages. This results in an exciting styling format with optimized airflow across the vehicle's silhouette. The new LED daytime running lights ensure an appearance that is unmistakable and at the same time provide positive points when it comes to active safety. The sporty-dynamic front spoiler in connection with the rear apron as well as the rear spoiler's profile reduces lift and generates a new, attractive overall appearance. The HAMANN side skirts provide for a visual and aerodynamic link between the front and rear.

The HAMANN rim program can fulfill nearly all individual requests from its BMW 6 Series customers. Whether you like it sporty, distinctive, elegant, or classy - HAMANN can offer you a variety of wheel designs and sizes.
A one-piece wheel, the ANNIVERSARY EVO, is offered as 21-inch design. The recommended front wheel/tyre combination of this exclusive rim design is available as 9Jx21 inch wheel with 265/30 ZR 22 tyres. The rear is fitted with 11.0Jx21 inch rims to be used with 295/25ZR21 tyres.

An additional highlight of this program is the three-piece HAMANN alu wheel called the EDITION RACE "ANODIZED". The matte black anodised spokes and the titanium bolts of the highly polished rim flange emphasise the racing character. Using the latest forging technology, the rims are extremely light and improve handling, acceleration, and deceleration behaviour due to reduced, unsprung masses. The wheel/tyre combination is offered with 9Jx21 inch wheels and 255/30ZR21 tyres in the front. The rear is fitted with 11Jx21 rims and tyres size 295/25ZR21. The HAMANN Sport Maxx tyres supplied by technology partner Dunlop provide the necessary grip to the road.

The special suspension that lowers the sport cabriolet's center of gravity up to 30 mm adds to the sporty appearance.

The turbo engine that will be boosted to an impressive 510 hp is already on the drawing board. The HAMANN Sport Exhaust System with four stainless steel tail pipes provides the roaring sound effects.

In addition to the existing, factory-supplied interior design, HAMANN Accessories offers components made of the finest black anodise aluminium. Upon request, HAMANN can produce anything your heart's desires - from personalised foot mats to embroidered headrests or even fitting the entire interior with the finest leathers - all made with the highest degree of craftsmanship and precision.

Oh lord that Alpina is from 70's, Hamann looks sooo much cooler! Compare the wheels for example. I know there are things which are wrong in Hamann but I would never buy that Alpina.

The Alpina is a very restrained car. Never too much. You see that there are changes but they are never too obvious. Just a enthusiast notices the changes. I like that. Especially in Gran Tourismos.

The Hamann screams "I am tuned, I have more power and my owner has (so he thinks) big balls!"
It is just too much. Too much LED'S, too much vents, too much Hamann signs, too much body work.

Each to his own but I would buy the Alpina.

This. Alpina always does just enough, never more. It's subtle but you still know what's been modified. Alpina over the Hamann and it's not even close.
