Although I have a vested interest in V8S prices rising I think this is TTP also.

Not keen on the colour either, might look better in the flesh but the pics showing the interior with body colour in shot and the piping on the headrests just looks too much of a hotch-potch, even although it will be finished to Alpina's high standards.

Brave person who specced this up. As it is hard to imagine what a finished car looks like when you choose a way-out colour such as this. Will need an equally enthusiastic purchaser.

It might work better with a different coloured interior but I like it! Dakar Yellow is a favorite of mine, it's the colour of my z3m Coupe

Ok I have to agree that it does look much better on this photo and maybe different body styles suit different colours better.

Bit hardcore for Alpina i think? Or Alpinas client base i mean, saying this back in the E30 e34 era alpina were more hardcore than M cars. Proper M car is a breadvan!
