We’re a long ways before the 2013 BMW M6 hits showrooms but no worries as Alpina has unveiled the B6 Coupe at the 2011 Tokyo Motor Show. It features a twin-turbo charging and intercooler system that delivers 540-hp at 5,500 rpm with a max torque of 516 lb-ft at 3,000 rpm. and mates the engine to an advanced ZF Switch-Tronic 8-speed Sport Automatic Transmission, giving the Alpina BMW B6 Bi-Turbo Coupe a 0 to 62 mph time of 4.4 seconds and top speed of 198 mph.

The B6 Bi-Turbo Coupe also comes with an aerodynamic kit that includes a front spoiler with the integrated carbon fiber front splitter and a rear spoiler with an optional rear wing. The suspension features Drive Performance Control that allow for electronically adjustable dampers and Dynamic Drive for active roll stabilization. The wheels are the 20-inch Alpina Classic rims fitted with Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires.

The interior looks equally as magnificent as the B6 Coupe gets a sport steering wheel hand-stitched in Lavalina leather, blue illuminated entry sills with logo and a trim in the classic Alpina myrtle wood. Did we mention it will come in convertible as well?

Look for the 2012 Alpina BMW B6 Bi-Turbo Coupe to hit Alpina certified BMW dealerships in the months ahead.

Have you been waiting for the new BMW 3 Series to come around?       Well the wait is over. The sixth generation of the quintessential sport sedan is upon us, and now we’ve got the pricing to go with it.

BMW of North America has placed the base MSRP for the four-cylinder 328i at $35,795, and the six-cylinder 335i at $43,295 . While these prices represent a $320 and $370 respective increase over the models they replace, BMW is adamant that the jump is worth it.

The  new 3 Series sedan has been substantially redesigned with sporty designs. It packs a higher level of equipment, that includes cabin gadgets like a 6.5-inch dashboard display screen for the iDrive controller system, as well as Bluetooth connectivity, USB/iPod connectivity interface, Multimedia CD, Satellite Radio, Office, and other advanced features. It has 8-Speed Automatic Transmission, Automatic Start/Stop, Dynamic Driving Control with ECO PRO Mode and Brake Energy Regeneration. Both models also feature larger wheels and tires as standard equipment. Another option is wrapped in leather upholstery with attractive accents of blue with silver old. But on the dashboard just using jet black color. With four doors and can seat up to five passengers, the car can drive at high speed is around.

Both the 328i Sedan with its TwinPower Turbo four-cylinder engine and the 335i, featuring BMW’s TwinPower Turbo 3.0-liter inline six will be available in a trio of trim and equipment variantsand 230-horsepowe – the Sport Line, Luxury Line and Modern Line. Each presents its own individual take on the character of the sports sedan.

With the announcement of the sixth generation BMW 3 Series Sedan, the benchmark by which all sport sedans are measured was raised once again. The pioneering history of the 3 Series serves as inspiration for the new sports sedan, whose powerful styling represents a fresh interpretation and conscientious development of traditional BMW design cues. It will not only set new standards for performance and handling but also for luxury, technology and efficiency once. The all-new 3 Series Sedan will continue to offer excellent value as well as for you.

It’s only been less than a day since BMW introduced their new M5 Concept and we already have the first tuning firm that’s stepped forward to announce a new aerodynamic kit program for the German sports car. The lucky tuning company that appears to be the first of its kind to prepare a tuning program for the M5 F10 Concept is Prior Design. The early-bird tuning program has become kind of a recent specialty for the German tuning firm after the company made a similar preview of their styling tune-up for the BMW 6-Series Coupe just a few weeks ago. Granted, specific details behind Prior Design’s aerodynamic kit for the 2012 M5 F10 is still being kept under wraps, at least until the summer time of this year. For now, the tuning company released these teaser photos of their latest project, one that we expect would keep the aggressive details of the M5 F10 while also coming with some refreshed aesthetic modifications. Coming from the very same people that previewed their project for the 6-Series Coupe, we’re not expecting anything less from these guys.

To commemorate the 40th Anniversary of the unification of the United Arab Emirates, BMW launched a limited edition 7 Series model at the 2011 Dubai Motor Show. The company says will only produce 40 units of the “special” 7er which will be sold through the Emirates two BMW importers: AGMC and Abu Dhabi Motors. The 7 Series “UAE Edition” uses the 750Li model as a base and to distinguish them from the standard model, BMW will offer the limited edition in the exclusive Marakesh Brown exterior color. Inside, a Merino Platinum leather is offered with the UAE emblem on the headrest, iDrive button and dashboard. At the rear, a chrome trim is engraved with “40 years UAE limited edition.”

Australian magazine CarsGuide reviews the new BMW 1 Series M Coupe and as always, the “baby-M” does not disappoint. Let’s have a look at an excerpt from the review.



This is the best bang-for-your-buck car ever to wear an M badge and the Bavarian maker’s refusal to call it an M1 in deference to the 1970s mid-engined supercar won’t matter a damn to anyone who drives it. A rose by any other name.

About $100,000 buys a two-door coupe that outperforms the $55,000-dearer BMW M3 in roll-on acceleration and is easier to toss through turns than any coupe this side of a Lotus Exige. It is about $25,000 dearer than the 135i and worth every heavily taxed cent of that.
