    I like it but it's a racing dino compared to the other cars... a bit like the BMW M6 by Alpina in the past :)

    Alpina don´t build or race M cars :) (they did but that was many years ago)
    You are thinking of the green Alpina B6 i think.

    Indeed. I can't remember who built the car in the past but that is indeed the car I am talking about.

    Seen it once IRL @ FIA GT3 at Zolder :)
