The only thing I like better on the alpina is the color. The v12 will sound better, the 760 looks better to me. now where is the 700hp v12 M7
P.s.
I know that it is unlikely

Front end much nicer on the 760 imo. I prefer the larger air intakes in the lower portion of the bumper.

This Alpina front bumper is too reminiscent of a non-M sport bumper with a lower spoiler attached underneath...not unique enough. And those rims are outdated.

No it's not. The M760i should be the bridge to an actual BMW M7.

The new Alpina comes in just when my old B7 lease is up and it looks like a winner!

I get aroused whenever I see the V12 badge-do I need a therapist?

I'll get one of these used off of a rich mans lease

Both looks good

To face BMW competitors in the market
Now a days

We still waiting for the M7 to surprise
Them
We need something legendary

They are smaller than the F01/F02 B7. 20" is standard (and shown). A new optional 21" forged wheel will be available starting in July as Michelin is behind schedule and the tires are not yet available.

M7 in this current generation is not going to happen. Even from a ///Marketing position it makes no sense. BMW have laid out their plans and it doesn't fit in the model line up. Next Generation, absolutely and without a second thought it is more likely than not.
