Benefitting from the sublime 3.0 litre, straight six, twin turbo petrol engine, the car develops around 366bhp (recently measured on the Janspeed rolling road) and 500Nm of torque. It’s extremely quick but has superb handling due to the excellent Alpina suspension. 0 to 60mph is achieved in 4.6 seconds with a top speed of 177mph. The car is based upon the BMW 335i, Alpina removed the twin-scroll turbo and replaced it with separate small and large turbos to improve the lag. They add their own suspension, bodywork, engine upgrades, exhaust, wheels, non-run flat tyres and bespoke interior, amongst other things. Also, rarely seen on an Alpina, it has quad-pipes as standard.
The paintwork is in excellent condition, with the front bumper having the benefit of being professionally re-spayed in perfect matching silver a few months ago to remove the stone chips and odd mark. The Classic 19″ 20 spoke alloys are also in excellent condition.
The interior is spotless in extended grey leather and comes with full professional wide screen Sat-Nav, electric heated memory seats with electric bolster and lumbar adjustment, auto folding and dimming mirrors, auto dimming rear view mirror, electric windows, automatic Xenon headlights, BMW Professional 7 disk sound system with upgraded Focal 100 KRS front speakers, two-way passive crossovers and boot mounted JL Audio XD500/3 amplifier. The upgraded sound system was professionally installed and is very discreet. It’s also had two recent new rear tyres at a cost of £382.80. Finally, it’s had the all-important Quaife Limited Slip Differential fitted which makes a big difference in handling and control.
The car comes with a folder full of receipts and invoices, together with the correct Alpina leather binder, associated booklets, BMW service booklet and corresponding BMW Alpina service booklet. It also comes with 2 sets of keys.
