The Alpina B6 Gran Coupe, a 4-door limited-production model, is the most expensive version of BMW’s 6 Series, which was released to the U.S. market in 2003. BMW’s suggested price for the vehicle, at $122,200, is considerably higher than what the car is actually sold for on average. This could suggest demand is lower than expected and discounts are offered more frequently as a result.
