Here we have an excellent example of a 2001 E39 Alpina B10 V8. This superb example is number 838 and has covered 100,000 Miles.
This example is finished in Alpina Blue 2 metallic paintwork with a Black extended leather interior.
The bodywork and paintwork are in excellent condition. This colour really makes the best of this shape and on this example it has a deep all over shine, no dings or dents, an outstanding example thats clearly been cherished, as they should be. This example also benefits from the factory facelift lights, an electric glass sunroof and rear parking sensors.
The inside of this lovely Alpina is amazing and very well specified. Alot of extra options were ticked on this B10 including extended Buffolo leather, electric / heated sports seats, overmats / door cards / door panels / boot carpet / steering wheel all have the Alpina striping making this car feel really special. Look around the interior of this car is all in excellent original condition. The sports seats are very supportive and the leather is in excellent unworn condition. The rear seats look like new. Extra Alpina touches include the number plaque, Alpine logo’d steering wheel and Blue dials etc. This car also features the Alpina Switchtronic system giving you the option of changing gears using the buttons on the steering wheel if required.
This car has the larger 19inch Alpina alloys, all in lovely condition, including the spare.
If you are not familiar with the Alpina B10, the Alpina are true hand built performance saloons. Alpina take a new car direct from the BMW production line to the Alpina factory and strip the car down again. They then rebuild the car, making performance improvements where necessary. The result is an amazing performance car, think of it as a more subtle alternative to the E39 M5. Starting with the engine, a new 4.6 block is used with enlarged, lighter Mahle pistons, re programmed engine management, new camshafts, improved heads etc. These modifications leave a 340 BHP V8, that makes a glorious sound and provides excellent performance. But its not just the engine performance thats improved, its the whole package. Don’t forget these cars could be ordered directly from the BMW showroom, so had be up to a very high standard. The exhausts / suspension / brakes / interior / gearbox software are all improved to give you the whole package. This car produces very similar performance figures to the M5, but provides this power in a different way. Drive this car around day to day, and its an extremely comfortable and luxurious saloon car, but find a suitable piece of road and these cars are amazing performance saloons, with the instant response from the V8, producing sounds that only a well tuned V8 can.
This example comes with full service history. The last owner was very proud of this car and it was a very reluctant decision to let it go. He has kept the paperwork very well, from the original Alpina Spec build sheet, original manuals, fully stamped original service book, all keys, folder of Service receipts and old MOT’s etc.
Now if you have not owned one of the exclusive saloons, you might not appreciate how good they are. The 200 mph speedo and the fact that the traction control light flickers when accelerating from 65mph should give you some idea of the performance on offer from these excellent cars.
I cant rate the B10 V8 highly enough and this is another outstanding example, ready to be enjoyed now !
