This was one of the new wave Euro luxury imports that put the heat on GM back in the '70s, starting a trend that would continue to the present. In 1979 Car and Driver put a Pontiac Grand Am 301 with 4bbl 301 and RTS up against a 528i. Pontiac was benchmarking BMW, and the comparison was reminiscent of the Ferrari GTO Vs Pontiac GTO the same magazine ran in the '60s. In 1979 in Europe the Alpina B7 5 series Turbo became the fastest 4 door car in the world at 155 mph.
