Founded in 1969, the BMW CCA (Car Club of America) now has 67 nationwide chapters with more than 70,000 members. It’s safe to say that the BMW CCA is filled with some of the most passionate and loyal fans of the Bavarian brand, worldwide. The BMW CCA holds numerous events and provides tons of media to its members and fans each year and has become the largest BMW club in the world.

Every year, the BMW CCA holds an annual raffle, which acts as a sort of fundraiser for the club so they can put on all of the great events that they do throughout the year. This year, the annual raffle is even more exciting than usual. That’s because the Grand Prize is something incredibly special and incredibly rare — a 2018 BMW ALPINA B6 xDrive Gran Coupe.
If you’re unaware of what an ALPINA B6 is, it’s quite possibly one of the most special modern BMWs ever made. It starts life as a standard BMW 650i Gran Coupe but then ALPINA gets its hands on it. The engine is upgraded to make 600 hp and 590 lb-ft of torque. When paired with its specifically-tuned eight-speed automatic, the ALPINA B6 can get from 0-60 mph in under four seconds, making it seriously quick. It’s also line in some of the most beautiful leather work and craftsmanship on the market.
Considering that the ALPINA B6 is quite rare in the United States, with only 750 models being made over the course of four years, it’s even more special than its stats suggest. Oh and it just so happens to cost about $120,000. So the idea of winning this car in a raffle is, frankly, absurd. But awesome.
But the ALPINA B6 won’t be the only car that the BMW CCA will be raffling off. The First Prize is a BMW M2, quite possibly the most hotly anticipated BMW in years. It’s also largely considered the best Bavarian steed currently on the market, by enthusiasts. The Main Prize isn’t bad, either, as it’s a BMW M240i.
Considering the fact that your odds are about 1 in 5,000 this raffle has far better odds than something like the lottery. In fact, compared to something like the lottery, the odds are fantastic. Especially considering that you can win a $120,000 ALPINA B6. The raffle ticket cost is $25 and the more tickets you buy, the better your odds are. If you buy 10 tickets or more, you get a free, special limited-edition ALPINA grille badge for your BMW.
The entry deadline for the raffle is September 29, 2017, so there’s still quite a bit of time to join. Prize drawings will start in October in Georgia.
