    Saw something called a BMW Alpina B7 in Calgary, today.
    The BMW logo didn't look like their normal logo. Anyway, I'd never heard of whatever the Hell this thing was.
    No pictures.

    Pretty much the fancy M7 7 series BMW doesn't make, so Alpina does. S63 AMG equivalency...twin turbo V8, nearly 600hp or whatever.

    The highest 7 series BMW M760i gets a V12, and that goes against the Mercedes S600 V12. I don't get it, but all these unknown high power sedans are awesome.

    $250k S65 AMG twin turbo V12 is crazy as it gets unless there's a Maybach with that engine.

    Here is a video by Motortrend where they compare a M6 to a Alpina B6. It explains a bunch about Alpina.

    You know, it's weird... I read all that stuff after, as well and this car sure didn't stand out like it was such a big deal.
    I guess that's how they are.

    I just saw what I'm confident was a Rhodes Scholar driving a relatively new Ford. It had that option where the F150 emblems on the sides of the fenders lit up, in red.
    It also had a license plate frame that said "I'd rather be getting TATTOOED"...

    I don't think it's what he meant, but I think it's pretty funny to indicate that you'd prefer to be getting punctured by needless, thousands of times rather than driving the vehicle you're currently in.
    LoL!
