IMHO M5s are common and any Alpina would be exclusive. If that is what you are looking for then the choice would be obvious. Insurance wise the Alpina cars should be more and what if it is stolen or crashed? Irreplaceable and the insurance wouldn't cover it. Unless you are a baller then the $$ wouldn't matter. Finally who would you trust driving a Alpina? Your mechanic?

That car is so amazing, but if you're planning on importing it. Nothing beats this one.

Ive seen pics of that Alpina e38 many times, but i just noticed.
It has a V8 engine.

All E38 Alpinas were V12, hence Alpina B12.
5.7l and 6.0l versions.
