Sparkling in the spring sunshine I snapped this rare beast in Kilcreggan today. It is based on the BMW 850i Coupe modified by Alpina. They were built 1988-94 and are fitted with a 5 litre V12 engine producing 350 bhp. And rare it is. Only 97 were made, 5 in UK spec. If you are in the USA and have seen one there think yourself lucky - only 2 were federalized for the States.
