I have been looking at big diesels for a while now and I was surprised how much more Alpina you get compared to stock bmw.
Brand new D5, thats the same as a stock 535d.

They don't make them like they used to, though:

330hp turbo big-six in a 1982 5 series? That thing would be fast even today, 30 years later. There weren't too many of these to begin with, since they only made them for a year or two years and Alpina output is always double digits or low triple digits for a lifetime run....

i think enthusiasts love hi performance wagons because of the whole "i'm so hardcore even my fucking wagon hauls ass" vibe.

also, Kim balls hard enough to give out Aventadors as presents?! and she gets paid for doing what, exactly?? reason #6,343,031 that life isn't fair. although to be fair this is probably a publicity stunt like everything else she/they do with their relationships...

A problem I am willing to live with. I'm not some 80 year old with back problems. If a fine ass chick I'm hitting like Kim gives me one, no way in hell I'm going to say no to that!

I watched 'Jiro Dreams of Sushi' last night and the little feature segment for Yoshikazu, the eldest son who is going to take over the sushi shop (and he stands there working on sushi with his dad all day, pulling 14-16 hour days everyday probably) - he says 'yeah, I wanted to be a race car driver growing up' and then it flashes to him driving in his car and then standing in front of it - it's an RS6 Avant. haha. He says 'yeah, my car will do 300kph' Kind of random blip because the rest of the film has him on a bicycle buying fish.

Just curious, when someone buys, or receives, or whatever one of these crazy super cars, do they get driving lessons of some sort? I don't know if I personally would feel entirely confident getting into such a machine, having never driven anything with such power.

I assume you guys heard of the BMW x Toyota collab they agreed upon last week?

Well it looks like it might spawn the new Supra based on the 6-series. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

BMW Rep Says Toyota's Sports Car will Have a Unique Design, Insider Hints at 6-Series-Based Supra

The sports car that BMW and Toyota plan to jointly develop could be a way for Toyota to leap back into a performance segment it has abandoned or possibly provide a high-priced sports model for Toyota's Lexus brand.

The two companies agreed last week to work together on an "environmentally friendly" sports car as well as on fuel-cell, electric vehicle components and lightweight materials.

"BMW's strength is in developing sports cars," said Toyota President Akio Toyoda, a racing fan who repeatedly has said he wants to add zest to Toyota's lineup. "I am excited to think of the cars that will result from this relationship."

Toyoda and BMW CEO Norbert Reithofer signed the agreement in Munich.

Details and timing of the cooperation were not discussed. But the sports cars will not be identical or share a common exterior design like the jointly developed Subaru BRZ, Toyota 86 and Scion FR-S coupes, said a BMW spokeswoman in Munich. The Subaru/Toyota coupes went on sale this year.

BMW's vehicle "will be a sustainable sports car with environmentally friendly technology," she said. "We are developing the architecture and components for this future car."

A BMW insider speculated that the collaboration could provide the basis for the return of the Toyota Supra, possibly using the BMW 6-series architecture. The Supra, once the performance spearhead of the Toyota lineup, was last produced in 2002.

"Anything is possible," the senior BMW manager told Autoweek, a sibling publication of Automotive News Europe. "The key factor is that the products of both companies retain their own individual character, despite jointly developed technologies."

I rented myself an Aston V12 Vantage for a weekend last year and the guy who dropped it off just wanted to watch me drive it out of the car park to make sure I could do it. Other than that they were fairly blase about the whole thing. They were insured I suppose, so there's not too much risk from their end. I had enquired about their Lambo Gallardo, but apparently someone had just wrapped it around a tree and they didn't know when it was going to be available again. D'Oh! Car was absolutely incredible though.

It depends on brand, model and country.

If you buy a gransport here you have to get some training, I believe it's the same with 911's and lambos.

You can buy training such as ice driving etc. From Audi, bmw, Merc, Porsche, lambo etc.
