    Tough to find as Alpina's own specs are kind of ambiguous, would be best to contact them but they won't sell you that part without the car.

    I guess you gotta see it when the sun's out to really see the paint change colors depending on the angle. I kinda wish they actually said "B7 Biturbo" instead of just "B7."

    I'm pretty sure it was already bought, though. They wouldn't just make one and leave it on the lot. And $137k MSRP? They must have gotten everything, then.

    No, he would have been unable to transfer those pics because his USB cable would have caught fire.

    It's not great at all, but here's a vid of the car in action. When I stood behind the car, the resonance was ridiculous that it would vibrate the ground. You really don't hear that in this vid with a bunch of drive bys and all. Maybe in higher RPMs something opens up and it wails. Although, it is still a 7 series.

    That blue is hideous and the wheel design is as bad as it gets.

    The wheel design is simple and classic and an Alpina tradition. It must be appreciated in that sense and it looks great in person.

    I understand taste is subjective but Alpina Blue is an incredible color. You need to see both the color and the wheels in person to appreciate it. Go to Alpina's website and look at the hi-res pictures on there.

    The previous B7s weren't something I liked to look at, but this new f01 is just amazing! It is simple while at the same time powerful.

    Not going to justify the premium price, but there is always a price for exclusivity.

    Agreed. The last-gen Alpina B7s really didn't stick out as much from their BMW counterparts. The spoiler was the only thing. Even the wheels weren't that spectacular, which seems to be the exact opposite in the F01 B7.

    I have only seen two B7s (both last-gen) and both stuck out, but only so slightly. One was Alpina Blue (though not as vibrant as the current Alpina Blue) and then a black one. Both times they were tearing it up on the highway, but I feel the F01, with the color, wheels, and even the quads help make it stick out a lot more.

    It's a ton bigger too, imo, the F01 B7.

    I'm trying to find an "Alpina" logo picture to use as an avatar on a forum, but I can't find one. I'm obviously talking about it just being "Alpina" in silver much like BMWs state their model, not the...roundel?...of Alpina. Any clue where I could go? Someone photochop one for me from the decklid of an Alpina image?

    All the Alpinas lined up like that with the girl looking over the balcony, fingering herself to awesomeness.
