I was cruising in 130 km/h on a highway when a AMG E55 came up fast behind me and went by in aprox 180 km/h , first I thought "no idea" to go after that one but I changed my mind :hihi:

I wanted to see how much he was going to leave my 22 years old B7 behind:cool2:
I "speeded" up and cought him when he had to slow down behind some other cars

Just behind him and we were driving in 100 km/h and I knew that he was going to floor it when the road was clean ( the driver was around 30 years old and alone)

Clean road and he floors it , BUT THE OLD B7 KEEPS THE DISTANCE INTACT FROM 100km/h UP TO 250km/h................:eek:oohhh:

We had to brake real hard when we cought up some slower traffic and I thought that he didn´t floor it that time but I knew that the second time he will do it for sure :3:

Same speed as the first time , from 100 km/h up to aprox 230 km/h when he suddenly goes in to the right side and slows down , he didn´t want to play anymore.........:applause:

I think the guy in the AMG must have been really confused when the old E24
did´t get smaller and smaller in his mirrors:biggrinbounce:

I know that I had big help when I was in his "slip stream" all the time but anyway , I have to say that I am a "little bit" proud over what the old B7 can do :imnotworthy:

Ok it´s not 100% standard , it´s "tuned" for 220 Eur :hihi: ( 1,1 bar instead of 0,9 , aprox 380 hp/ 600Nm)

He had his mirrors full of this ....

That's what I want to hear! Let those "new cars" be surprised by the power of the good old B7 :)

A.G great story, love to hear how old school Alpina's can keep up wth more modern machinery. Poor M.B. drivers ego must have gotten knocked down a peg or 2. A sharknose Alpina Turbo, cant beat that combo!!

Very nice! Sure the newer cars are more refined and smoother. But there is something so beautiful about how our Alpinas perform that still engages us.
