Cooper and I saw this beast while waiting for my wife outside the grocery store. In fact, we heard it before we saw it. I had to wait for the owner with the cowboy hat to step away from the car before I did a creepy walkaround of it. It seems to have every conceivable option ever offered, from sunshades to that BMW badge on the bottom of the B-pillar. It has a Montana plate that reads "ALPINA".
Apparently, the earlier B12 E38s had the 5.7 liter engine and the later E38s had the 6 liter. But I guess the preliminary question is: Is this a real Alpina?
