This Might be the World’s Rarest BMW Alpina

It’s truly one-of-a-kind.

Together with BMW Car Club of America (CCA) and BMW North America, Alpina has created the one-off BMW Alpina B6 xDrive Gran Coupe BMW CCA Edition. Powered by a 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8 engine, the four-door coupe offers 600 horsepower and 590 pound-feet of torque, but that’s not what makes it so special. Instead, it’s all in the finer details  such as the Alpina Piano Black trim featuring a special BMW CCA Edition silver inscription on the center console.

The cabin is filled with Merino Opal White Full Merino leather, but looking for attention is a hand-finished Alpina Lavalina steering wheel with white bespoke stitching. Also helping match the Merino Opal White Full Merino leather interior is bespoke white piping, found on the floor and trunk mats. The headrest on the seats are subtly embossed with the Alpina logo.

No limited edition or one-off car would be complete without a plaque designating it as such. There’s one plaque with BMA CCA Edition 01/01 inscription inside the interior, while another can be found in the engine bay. That one boasts the signatures of the Burkard, Andreas and Florian Bovensiepen, the father-and-son duo behind the Alpina family business.

One finishing touch on the special Alpina B6 is its Akrapovic titanium exhaust system that’s engineered as a single, one-piece exhaust system stretching approximately 12 feet from the downpipes to the rear exhaust tips. Since it’s made entirely from titanium, it saves over 15 pounds (6.8 kilograms) of weight. The exhaust tips have also been finished with carbon fiber trim.
