Alpina B6 GT footage from its inaugural racing season

After a two decade hiatus, Alpina returned to motorsports last year with the Alpina B6 GT. Here are some behind the scenes look at the Alpina B6 GT during its first racing season. Based on BMW's 6-Series coupe, the B6 weighs under 3,000 pounds and gets a supercharged 4.4-liter V8 that gives more than 520 horsepower and 535 pound-feet of torque.

Although non-German speaking folks may not be able to understand the conversation, sometimes race cars like the B6 GT are best observed by simply watching and listening to the action.

Backed by a six-speed X-Trac sequential gearbox, the car is reportedly capable of hitting 62 miles-per-hour in 3.9 seconds en route to a top whack of at least 177 mph (a speed it has already reached in testing on the Nürburgring).

Very nice video and photographs. Anyone who hesitates about ordering a sports steering wheel, seats and tires should have a look at the photos.

It's a different car. Or taken at a different time and place. Check out the front spoiler lip support that isn't present in the other pics. Plus the lip itself is a different color. Background and floor are also different.

I love most of the GT racing cars but I must say this one is bit ugly.

Yes, that is true.

Wheels still edited though...

Look at uneven tires (near front Michelin Logo) and also some smudges on wheel diameter. Brake calipers also on wrong side.

I hope it really does well in the races.
