Check this out, looks very nice I think. The wheels looks like 20" or 21". The coming B6 will be a very nice GT-car, no doubt about it:)

If they are not able to sell 1000 B6s a year I will be disappointed. My guess is Alpina could be a 5000/year manufacturer if they sold all their lines in the US, Europe and Asia.

Alpina could probably sell their entire production run in China the way things are going out there.

The car looks very nice with those wheels; I'm looking forward to the B6/M6 and B5/M5 comparisons :wroom:

mmmm - first photo is drop dead gorgeous - but that last one :

is certainly not !

what is going on at the front - huge space between the tyre and wheel arch ?

Definitely not the best angle for the car

I was visiting the Alpina facility in Buchloe this summer and noticed a 6 in their parking space. I asked if it was to be an Alpina. Mr. Kratzer smiled and said something like "Yes, but not until 2006." I think he said 2006, but it might be 2005. I was busy soaking impressions! :)

My informations from Buchloe (Odwarka + Bovensiepen Jr) remain valid :
B5 in 2005, B?? in 2006 (6 based). Same engine, V8 4,4 + ASA compressor, 500 bhp, possibly manual gearbox (while their emerging market is definitely the middle east, they still remind they have client in UK / Germany/ Belgium/ Switserland)...
