One of the greatest cars Alpina built is the original '89 B10 Biturbo, a 180mph sedan that would take down many exotics of the time. I cannot begin to explain how awesome this car was when it came out. That being said, the "BiTurbo" name is quite sacred among old school BMW enthusiasts.
I know what BiTurbo is even though I'm not that old myself so I respect that. However, I think the E92 styling doesn't fit with the rest of the design cues so for me it's either all or nothing. And if I were to relive any point in my life it would be the 80s. Long live pinstripes.
