Man if they can get 600hp out of the V8, the tuning potential on the new V12 is going to be unreal.

Wow! That's quick! The back seat looks like a very nice place to spend time in.

I think it's an option and not required if you were to buy. At least it was for the B3/D3 when I was playing around with the configurator on the Alpina site.

It needs to be at least 21". These 20s do not look good enough.

Agreed. At least from an aesthetics point of view. Too much rubber makes the wheel look smaller than it really is given the size of the 7er.

I'm sure it was an economic decision lol. 21's would have cut into that already absurd premium haha.

You can probably spec the pina without the spoilers, stripes and that. Get yourself some OE wheels and you're pretty much there.

The Alpina's aerodynamic body add on's and take on BMW vehicles have always been amazing looking. Very conservative look with their vision and never overdone. The same wheel style generation after generation works everytime too which is awesome, they stick with what works and it doesn't get boring or make me think "why do they keep putting the same wheels on it."

The 20" is still cast with the new 21" being forged. For whatever reason the 21" hasn't been revealed to the public yet. Has been a ridiculously long project with more changes than necessary and they're still hiding them. By far the most difficult wheel project ever encountered.

They already charge an insane premium. The 21in wheels would have cut too deep into their profit margin. I'm sure they negotiated a nice supply contract with the wheel manufacturer and the 21in was simply not cost effective. They should have changed the design since those wheels look much better in the larger size.
