I wonder if the m275 fits in a ponton. Might have to cut into the hood and fenders lol

It would take a massive amount of surgery.  The m275 is very wide,  especially with the location of the turbos. I will try and get some pics of the m275 next to a SBC at some point to give an idea of scale.

My neighbor has two Alpina B7. One green and one blue. His wife has the last body, and he has the newest B7. Gorgeous cars. 

 

I love the B7 for its rarity, even in this geography. Although I see a lot of S63/S65 during th week, my heart still goes for a S8/A8L V12, or a S63/S65. The quad pipes aren't that understated, which I like. The B7 is for people who REALLY know, which has its cool factor as well. 

Can't go wrong with any of them.   Something like that will hopefully replace our Ls600hL soon enough

In reply to Cotton :

Well, I just traded out my 2013 C63 amg for a 2013 M5.  Man it is an excellent change.  I didn't have it on my radar as I was looking at the panamera and the S7, but the rear seat headroom killed it for me.  I would have gone S6, but for about the same money I found the M5, and with twin turmbos, it's stock at 560 HP and I really like the creature comforts it provides.

The CL600 sold a few months back, so I'm really on the hunt for a new DD.  The current front runner is a newish c63s coupe.

Something like this:
