I was at a party yesterday evening and got chatting to a bloke about cars - as you do.

Turns out he owned a B3S a few years back before he had to part with it to keep his business afloat and his employees employed.

Since then he has had a series of Ferraris, Lambos, Porsches and the rest of the supercar brigade but the one car he wished he hadn't got rid of was the ALPINA.

He still lurks here in the vain hope the car will come back on the market but, as we know, the B3S is for life and not just for Christmas Very Happy
