Really looking forward to seeing the new B3. This shot offers a little bit more detail including the left and right scoops. Cant recall the touring coming out before the saloon for a new generation historically, but it will be a welcome sight in the line up.

Apparently Dynamics are going to be standard issue, with Classics (with caps, not forged) being an option.

This has been highly anticipated for me and was most pleased when i read the other day that the touring will be the launch car!

Cant wait to see the pics.

Another recent Alpina B3 Biturbo Touring spy shot from motor1. 0-60 In Under 4 Seconds and 450bhp is what is being touted online. We will find out next week, should be a great car.

Would this mean Dynamics are being reintroduced? Don't think they've been available for ages now, right?

I think it would be a good move as the multi spokes don't appeal to all.

Apparently Dynamics are standard, Classics (with caps, not forged) the option. Not heard about sizes.

The car looks lovely, but i find it sad that the individual who took these pics couldn't respect the unveiling less than 24hrs away. A lot of effort goes into making these cars, especially for a small company like Alpina, why not respect their moment in the headlines and let it be unveiled as intended? Just my humble opinion.

I cant remember seeing shots like that of the cars at the show just before a reveal, I am going back 15 years or more. I guess with everyone having smart phones leaks like this may become a common event which would be sad as said.

BTW the Alpina stand at this type of event is brilliant and most friendly being a sanctuary at really busy times. I would recommend going to a launch/motor show and there are a few on the doorstep in Europe if you get the chance. A good excuse for a long weekend away and to be honest preferable to a weekend in Blackpool......... :D
