GT3 was not popular in the UK because of LHD, can not see this selling well either.

Comes in 3 crap colours, unless you pay the Alpina colour paint premium Sad

Fitted with M4 seats, which are extremely uncomfortable.

Designed for the limited edition collector, or someone with more money than sense Laughing

By it new for £100k and sytner will very generously offer you £50k a couple of months later Think

Agreed that video looks more like an advert for Nike/Sports Direct !

Ooohhh nice seats.

Certainly looks like Alpina are aiming this towards a younger crowd with this video, compared to their usual adverts.

Surely that's no bad thing.

Could we not have an Alpina special edition like they used todo ? Shoehorn a much larger engine into the front ? B5 engine into a B3 / B4 body? Rather than adjust a column on a mapping program and fit some seats with holes in.

Could even resurect the B8 moniker 🤔. Although the new Alpina 8 series would then need to be B12 again

Just a thought....

Hi all


I had it confirmed that the EDITION 99 is also RHD, just not the Coupé AWD.

Thanks

Neil

To confirm the EDITION 99 is RHD for UK allocation. All six cars allocated have found homes two weeks after the car was announced.

Contrary to the remarks I'm reading here, the EDITION 99 promises to be a fabulous car and a classic of the future.

Brian, you have strong views on this offering. I understand that it may not appeal to your personally, but it might to others?

There are many cars I do not like, but I think it's perhaps more diplomatic to express the view in less explicit terms?

However, a view is a view. I would prefer a new B7 if I had the funds.
