First image on the UK configurator site is now of the B7. Could they sell enough right hookers to produce them?

You can get RHD x-drive G11s already. I think possibly only on the diesel models at the moment.

While the UK market for the B7 may be virtually non-existent, the Japanese marked has a healthy number of RHD and LHD B7s currently that I have seen in both E65/66 and F01/F02 guises.

Interestingly on the plaque, there isn't a special edition number on the photos even though the car is running a German registration plate. So is this a US-specification car on German plates or a Euro car with the number photoshopped out (as the US cars don't have an Alpina VIN or special edition number).

Or, god forbid, have Alpina done away with individual numbering of the cars?
