At a recent and fantastic BMW track event I attended the Alpina B7 was part of the cars we drove. It has impressive acceleration under full boost but the throttle/turbo lag is pretty terrible off -> on throttle, the steering is slow and it does IMO not handle sharper than a 750i and is nowhere close an M5/M6 in throttle response. It was my first experience with an Alpina and it did nothing to further my interrest in the Alpina lineup. For my preferences there is no contest between Ms and Alpinas.
