That looks awesome. Any specs on the car?

I imagine that its not using the 4.4 anymore. Most likely be the new 4.8.

Given that they just launched the B5 alongside it with the same 4.4l engine, probably not. The 4.4l is quite capable of putting out 600bhp, it seems, so why bother changing?

Did anyone who went to the show ask about the prospects of a supercharged 4.8?

I wonder how many B7s Sytner shifted in the UK so far, actually - not very many would be my guess - I'll see if I can find out at some point. I expect the depreciation will have been truly horrific, as usual.

i think there have been either 4 or 5 UK RHD cars so far.. but hell if it's cheap enough i'd have a left hooker...

actually the CEO of our group as a B7 (mind you he's got an E39 B10 V8 as well)

unfortunately his passion for Alpinas is his only good characteristic... but sometimes i get the impression that it's more to do with their perceived status and value rather than having them because of the passion...

He might not appreciate it, then, if another B7 turned up in the office car park one morning...
