This BMW 6 Series racing prototype is in the process of being transformed into a GT1 spec by two tuning houses, both of which have a long history of ramping up past BMWs and turning them into full-fledged racing machines.
Initially a 6-Series, this car was taken in by tuning house Alpina and turned it into what they call the ’B6’. But, apparently, one tuner isn’t enough for this wunderkind of a vehicle. As soon as it was tuned by Alpina, Aurora Racing Designs took it off the former’s hands to convert the B6 into a race-ready GT1 spec.
There aren’t a lot of specifics that have been disclosed yet, but with former McLaren engineer Nicholas Galbraith and ex-Alpina race designer Andreas Puschel taking the mantle from Alpina in further tuning the car, we’re confident that this B6 GT1 could become something more than just a tuned-up show car. If things work out, we wouldn’t be the least bit surprised to see this car lining up on a racing grid in the very near future.
