SCALING THE ALPINAS
With enough money -- $137,600 to be exact -- about 400 U.S. buyers out of just 555 worldwide will be able to climb into the new BMW Z8 Alpina. Long offered in Europe, BMW bills the Alpina line as an alternative to the balls-to-the-wall performance of its M models. Those vehicles wearing the Alpina badge are a bit "more refined…. and exclusive," according to the automaker's U.S. sales chief, Tom Purves. And unlike M models, they come with automatic transmissions. The first Alpina to reach the U.S., the Z8 version will be offered for only one year, but Purves suggested "this is a start," and sometime in 2005, another Alpina model could make the trans-Atlantic crossing.


My guess....B10 V8S. :bigpimp:
