Including a shot of my favourite ALPINA tipple:




The benefits of ALPINA being a wine 'investor' as BB said in the recent video.

Thanks a lot for these videos.
I learn that Maxime Martin, the son of Belgian Importer Jean-Michel Martin, will race next year. Very interesting.
The GT3 is a really unique piece of work. Very tempting..

I will be there on Monday, I can't wait !

Cheers.

Saw the cars yesterday.. Great cars and a great stand, the paint finish on the green B3 was pretty poor though?

I'm fairly sure that's a vinyl wrap, not paint Question

Yes it's vinyl wrap and not finished version that will be put on customers cars. They've been testing various ones.
