Read they are making An M8 so hopefully will make one ? Was behind a nardo grey one yesterday and it looked stunning from the rear and side profile apart from the letter box chrome exhsusts either side showing a puny single tail pipe each

The myths that dreams are made of, but not sure that the sales figures would warrant the development costs. At that price bracket there are probably more desirable cars.
Alpina B6S Convertible
BMW E46 M3 SMG Coupe - stripped out track day weapon.
TVR Chimaera 400 - Turbocharged - Just mad and insanely quick!
Porsche Cayenne GTS 4.8, Oops, the dark side has landed!
BMW E34 Racing Dynamics K38 - Gone
Alpina B3S Convertible - Gone due to B6S
BMW X5 4.6is - Gone
Alpina Roadster 3.4S - Gone
BMW E46 330d M Sport Touring - Gone
BMW M3 Evo E36 - Gone due to B3S
BMW 840 Ci Sport - Gone, but what a car
BMW M3 E30 - sadly departed

Too little time...Too many cars!

I've been in a M850i, it looks and sounds phenomenal. ALPINA's interpretation of it if they do one is bound to be stunning. I'd love for them to make one and then in a decade when they're affordable I'll pick one up! :lol:

Quoting Andy

"We will have a replacement for the 6 Series Gran Coupe," Alpina boss Andreas Bovensiepen told Roadshow at the company's headquarters in Buchloe, Germany, on Wednesday. "Customers will expect a successor."

When asked if Alpina will use BMW 8 Series as the basis for that new model -- specifically, the new 8 Series Gran Coupe -- Bovensiepen replied, "That's the intention."

Was told some time ago by a sytner's sales man that they're definitely making their version of the 8 Series. Think he said it was due next year.
