Arrow BMW ALPINA B6 xDrive Gran Coupe BMW CCA Edition

The BMW ALPINA B6 xDrive Gran Coupe BMW CCA Edition

COMMENTS



Woodcliff Lake, NJ – September 8, 2017… Introduced in 2014 in collaboration between BMW and ALPINA, the four-door Coupé with xDrive has been widely recognized for its aesthetic beauty, epic driving performance and balanced handling.

Powered by a bespoke 4.4 liter V8 Twin-Turbo engine which delivers 600 bHP at 6000 rpm and a maximum torque of 590 lb-ft at only 3500 rpm, the BMW ALPINA B6 xDrive Gran Coupe offers supercar like performance. Accelerating from 0 to 60 mph takes just 3.6 seconds and a top speed of 198 mph can be reached.

The sleek silhouette of the four-door body shape is both sophisticated and sportive, unique exterior ALPINA design elements set distinguishing accents, such as iconic ALPINA CLASSIC wheels, and provide aerodynamic functionality – all in one stylish and elegant package.

The unique blend of jaw dropping performance, bespoke luxury and sublime comfort means the BMW ALPINA B6 xDrive Gran Coupe has become the choice of automotive connoisseurs who are attracted to its unique pedigree.

Together with BMW Car Club of America and BMW North America, ALPINA has decided to celebrate this success by creating truly one of a kind – the BMW ALPINA B6 xDrive Gran Coupe BMW CCA Edition.

Finished by master craftsmen at the ALPINA manufactory in Bavaria, this BMW ALPINA B6 xDrive Gran Coupe exhibits bespoke features which highlight its performance luxury character and the ALPINA ethos, making it truly-one-of-a-kind.

The BMW ALPINA B6 xDrive Gran Coupe BMW CCA Edition marks the pinnacle of the 2017 BMW CCA Raffle!

One Of A Kind.
The BMW ALPINA B6 xDrive Gran Coupe BMW CCA Edition is finished in a timeless and contemporary paint and upholstery combination – the exclusive ALPINA Blue Metallic perfectly offsetting the luxurious Merino Opal White Full Merino Leather interior.

ALPINA Piano Black trim features a special BMW CCA Edition silver inscription on the center console, which has been painstakingly handmade in a one-off production with a high-gloss lacquer finish.

The hand-finished ALPINA LAVALINA steering wheel features white bespoke stitching, which along with the floor and trunk mats with bespoke white piping, match the Merino Opal White Full Merino Leather interior. The headrests are subtly embossed with the ALPINA logo.

Besides the customary interior ALPINA production plaque with BMW CCA Edition 01/01 inscription, a truly unique production plaque can be found in the engine bay. This features the signatures of the Burkard, Andreas and Florian Bovensiepen – the father and son team behind the ALPINA family business.

The BMW ALPINA B6 xDrive Gran Coupe BMW CCA Edition’s titanium exhaust system is a technical masterpiece. Engineered as a complete one-piece exhaust system stretching over a length of approximately 12 ft from the downpipes to the rear tailpipes, it is made entirely of titanium and saves over 15 lbs of weight. The two twin tailpipes are finished with a carbon fiber trim.

Yet because income tax is due for the value of the vehicle 99% of the time the winner takes the cash.

I can think of one time where the Grand Prize also included $$ for the income tax.

is that the only reason? LOL. people take the cash option because they want the CAISH more than the vehicle. Period.

the majority of Lottery winners do the same thing right? take the cash up front rather than the 20 year payout..

Probably but we don't know since the cash option has basically always been available.


Edit: It's funny because BMWCCA advertises the hell out of the prizes for the raffle yet I suspect most members are interested in the prizes given away for buying tickets at certain intervals (ex $1k Amex gift card, $1k Amazon, $1k Shell gas card).

I'm sorry but this is the stupidest special edition BMW by a long shot. Bmw has always shyer away from selling alpinas in the NA market for fear that they would eat into M sales. Yet they name a special edition after that markets biggest and longest running BMW club? I really don't get it. And it's not that I have a thing against alpina- I actually love them. I would happily take a B3 wagon if anyone from corporate is listening...

It's not an "edition" like DTM edition where they are selling 200. It's a special customized version of an Alpina that the BMW CCA raffles off at Ofest event. They did a customized E92 M3 a few years ago and a Dinan custom last year.

I like it.

There is nothing that Alpina will be able to do to rescue the next 6 series from its pretty-duckling to fugly-swan transformation so let's just enjoy this.

This would be awesome to win but I'd hate to pay 25% in federal taxes on $130k.

I Won!

Hi All... New to the forum.

I just got a call yesterday that I won the grand prize and unfortunately there isn't a "cash option" for the grand prize, so either I pay the $32,500 in taxes, or walk away from the award. They won't ship the car to my nearest dealer until the taxes are paid.

On top of the IRS taxes there is local sales tax and DMV so that's another $13K.

This is a tough decision.

I'm sure your local dealership is willing to make you an offer to buy it off of you, after you have paid all the taxes.

I was thinking about that, but they typically purchase those cars for probably at least $20K less than MSRP, so I doubt they would be willing to pay what the car is "worth", but it would certainly be less work than trying to sell it on my own.
