    The drawing looks fantastic. Shame you have to slap a registration plate on the front. Who needs a M7?

    @Erik: Dude, you’re correct :) So used to typing naturally aspirated, I still love those engines. Bring them back in the M3, BMW!

    Whoa ! those Alpina wheels (rims) looks at bit small. Otherwise very nice, but not sure about those quad exhauts.

    @Gord: I have no doubt that the final version will have larger wheels.

    Love it. Im sure the car will have larger wheels though. I wounder what the price would be…The new 7 has raised in price so i guess the B7 will too.
