Looks a bit tight pulling out of that fantasy driveway though...

Love the steering wheel; less sure about the monster gearstick or the over-detailed front seats.

Don't like all that tacky silver trim on the steering wheel and around the Aircon and light controls, looks very low rent :(

Yep - video confirms what I'd feared... I don't have anywhere near enough grey hair to drive one

Loving the full black panel instrument cluster and I note the Alpina plaque is a departure from the oblong ones we've seen for years.

The seats look far better in black (saw one being fitted out at Buchloe) with contrast stitching.
Nothing to see here.... move along in an orderly fashion please!

I agree Paul. The new steering wheel, the instrument cluster and the neat plaque on the centre console are neat & elegant, and a welcome change.

I missed the plaque on the first viewing - well spotted Paul!!

And of course it is on the Alpina website.

They talk about it being the B7 AWD so I wonder if they will do a RWD version with 800 Nm of torque, and therefore whether we will get it in AWD or not at all in the UK?
