Magnificent, isn"t it? The new Alpina B3 BiTurbo Touring could very well be the secret star of the 2019 Frankfurt motor show. Sure, limited-edition Lamborghinis and that new Land Rover 4x4 you might have heard of are cool, but what you really want for life, until death doth you part, is a fast wagon.And much as we reckon the Audi RS6 Avant is the horniest-looking machine of 2019, there"s a lot to be said for Alpina"s softly-softly don"t-get-catchy-by-policey approach. The B3 offers 455bhp and 516lb ft from its retuned X3M engine, but in emerald green with cream leather it"s as restrained and classy as Her Majesty The Queen"s Bentley.It"s got us thinking dangerous, we know. Are quick wagons even cooler when they don"t have seventeen exhaust pipes and wheelarches you could serve Sunday dinner on? Join TG as we delve into the more discreet ends of the mega-wagon spectrum
