Here at Old Colonel Cars, we are delighted to have a stunning and very rare Alpina B3 3.3, number 009. This April 2000 example has covered only 76,000 miles. 1 of only 90 UK cars produced, in fact 1 of only 275 produced worldwide.
Finished in Titanium Silver with a full Black Montana extended leather interior, this example is in excellent condition throughout. The last 3 owners of this car have been BMW club members, this car has been cherished and taken to shows etc. It really is an outstanding example, with the Alpina bodywork, it really gives this car presence and a great stance.
I am sure if you are in the market for one of these, you will read all the reviews and specs on the Alpina B3’s. In summary Alpina went all round this model, making performance improvements to engine / gearbox / brakes / suspension / wheels etc. Then they turned their attention to the bodywork and interior, adding Alpina style and subtle improvements where needed. This Alpina B3 package gives you lots of extra performance and gives you the feeling you are driving something special every time you take it out.
A rare car from a period when BMW and Alpina were producing some of their best cars..
