Thanks Alistair.
Not sure if the estate versions have been big sellers for BMW. I certainly think the lack of 4WD hurts sales in the UK

Mercedes launched the W205 C-Class in December 2013 with production starting in early 2014 and the Coupe version followed in 2015. The AMG version of the the saloon the C63 AMG was also launched in 2015 and came in two versions the normal with 469hp and the S with 503hp both using the 4 litre turbo engine from the AMG GT. The Coupe version of this car was launched in 2016 at the Frankfurt show and features a number of design elements to distinguish it from the base models including the aggressive front bumper, which features larger air scoops to feed more air to the engine as well as the brakes plus a wider track, evidenced by the wider wheel arches.

The Mk3 Ford Focus RS was launched nearly 5 years after the release of the mainstream model and features 4WD and 350hp from it's 2.3 litre turbocharged unit which gives it the ability to sprint to 60 mph in under 5 seconds

I like both the Merc and the Ford. If it was a pick to have one in full size, I think it'd be the Merc. A big AMG engine beats the Ford engine for me.

Love the Merc.....was thinking about going for it myself and now obviously wish I had.

Focus RS is Really Superb......Nitro blue suits it so well. Should have gone through with the order of my 1:1.

Shown previously yesterday by Simon.
From 1971 to 1973 Alpina took the standard E9 3.0CS and produced a version with a 35hp increase over the original which gave a 12mph increase in top speed. By this time Alpina tuning kits were certified by the factory so this conversion was fully approved and would lead onto the 3.0CSi Alpina for the fuel injected cars and with the introduction of the 3.5 litre engine the first Alpina B2
