Introduction

Here we have an amazing, very low mileage example of one of the best performance, luxury saloons money can buy, the Alpina B10 4.6 V8.

If you are not familiar with this model, this was Alpina’s answer to the M5.

This was not designed to be a direct competitor, as it was more designed for a super fast saloon rather than the more hard core M5. These cars left the factory as BMW 4.4 V8’s. They were then taken to the Alpina factory. The engine was modified by increasing the displacement to 4619 cc, new crankshaft, re profiled camshafts, lighter higher compression Mahle pistons and a re-programmed engine management, along with re profiled and ported cylinder heads.  This along with suspension / wheels / exhaust / gearbox upgrades resulted in a car with 340 BHP and amazing amounts of torque. Alpina claim 172 MPH if the mood takes you with a 0-60 time of 5.9 seconds, but road-tests indicate these figure might be on the conservative side.

These performance figures are impressive, but the main achievement in my eyes is the way they made all these improvements whilst still leaving a perfectly usable daily car, yet had stunning performance when needed. Other than a slightly deeper exhaust note on tickover, its hard to tell this Alpina from a normal BMW V8. But explore the performance and everything comes together and makes sense. Its staggering, the bespoke Alpina exhaust suddenly makes all the right noises, pops and bangs on the overrun, the instant performance from this large V8 is very addictive, the Switchtronic gearbox with paddle buttons on the steering wheel to change gear works extremely well, I think Alpina got the whole package just right !

Bodywork

This example is finished in a vary desirable and rare colour, Velvet Royal Blue Metallic.

This is an Alpina only colour option, only 3 cars worldwide are believed to been made with this spec.

The bodywork and paintwork are immaculate, it has the deepest all over shine, the colour changes dependent on sun conditioning, obviously no rust, no noticeable dings or dents.

As with most Alpina’s, the paintwork seems to have just a little extra sparkle, it just looks fantastic. Look at the video, everyone who has seen this car seems to love the colour and are amazed by the condition.

Interior

Inside this Alpina is finished in the perfect colour combination,  Lavolina Cream extended leather with matching Velvet Blue piping and deep pile carpets.

The leather used is of the best quality and it extends to the door cards, top of dash etc.

This interior has a real quality feel and is in excellent condition. 

Options

The spec includes a rare electric glass sunroof, electric front seats with memory function, 3 stage heated seats, electric steering  wheel adjustment, car phone, rain sensor wipers, rear electric blind, factory gradually tinted glass, rear parking sensors, sat nav , CD changer etc.

Obviously this car has the lovely Alpina alloys, these are all in excellent condition, with no curbing etc

Documentation

This example benefits from a full service history.

It comes with all the manuals, a fully stamped original service book and a folder full of Service receipts and old MOT’s, Original sales brochure, Alpina build specs etc.

Summary

This Alpina B10 V8 is an outstanding, unrepeatable car and this example drives and performs perfectly.

It will come with a new MOT on sale !!
