Alpina return to motorsport with B6 GT3

Alpina B6 GT3 fq

Renowned BMW tuner Alpina is returning to the motor racing scene for the first time in two decades with its new B6 GT3, just unveiled for the first time at the Geneva Motor Show. Based on the 6 Series, the B6 GT3 features a unique radial supercharger fitted to its 4.4-litre V8 to drive 530 horsepower to the rear wheels in what looks to be a compelling competition package.

Alpina itself will be fielding a pair in the European FIA GT3 series and at selected 24-hour endurance races, but the B6 GT3 will also be offered to private teams. Alpina has fitted adjustable everything to the car and a full array of electronic control systems to ensure that both gentlemen racers and professional drivers will be able to handle it and so that the car will qualify for a wide array of racing series. Very nice indeed.
