Car description

The Alpina B6 3. 5 is based on a 1986 BMW 325i. But it has an Alpina 3. 5 liter inline six engine with 261 horsepower. 93 more than stock. And even more importantly. gives an additional 91 ft/lb of torque. I entered the BMW chassis Vin because Ebay doesn't recognize Alpina vins. The BMW VIN was actually struck and replaced with an Alpina vin as required by the German government because Alpina is considered a manufacture. All the paperwork for the car and the certificate of authenticity from Alpina reflect the Alpina vin of: WAPB635006BA20030 The gearbox was replaced by the dogleg. close ratio gearbox. The suspension was Alpina specific and features progressive springs. swaybars and Bilstein shocks. The brakes are Alpina and have larger ventilated disks. The wheels were Alpinas and this car has upgraded staggered wheels in 7 and 8 x 16. The seats. upholstery. steering wheel and shift lever are all Alpina specific. And there is a digital gauge in the vent that shows four readouts. The body is modified with an Alpina front and rear spoiler as well as Alpina stripes in gold. which look amazing over the Royal Blue Metallic paint. There were only 219 Alpina B6 3. 5s made by Apina and this is number 40. It has only 88. 50 miles. It is the only B6 3. 5 known to exist in the United States. and the only one for sale in the world. It has had a full service. is in impeccable condition and needs nothing. Comes with Certificate of Authenticity from Alpina. I ordered it from Germany. The 3. 5 liter engine puts out the same power as an E28M5. Imagine what that is like in an E30 chassis. But unlike an M5 the Alpina 3. 5 is all about the midrange. It lives in the 2000-5000 rpm range. where most people drive. You keep it there with a close-ratio 5-speed. dogleg transmission. capped by a wood Alpina knob. In almost perfect condition with a recent respray in Royal Blue Metallic. number 40 is ready for the discriminating buyer who wants the power of an E28 M5 in an E30 chassis. The car has the BMW vin with an X stamped over it. which was done by Alpina and replaced by Alpina’s own VIN. indicating the 30th car B6 3. 5 because they are considered “manufacturers” by the German government. because they modify the car to such an extent that it is not modified but manufactured. Flaws: two tiny burn marks next to the ashtray (see photo). Alpina front spoiler was repaired by German dealer from whom I bought the car. There is a small crinkle in the spoiler (please see photo). Below is information from the Alpina Archive website:“Alpina [installed a 3. 5 liter engine] modified the cylinder heard and combustion chambers. fitted lighter. higher compression Mahle pistons. a new camshaft and exhaust system. to increase the [3. 5 liter BMW engine] from 218 to 261 horsepower. ” Torque went up from 214 to 255 ft/lb of torque. (this is what they did to the 3. 5 not a comparison to the 325i. )Clear Nevada title and available for PPI at buyer's expense. There haven't been any B6 3. 6s for sale for about 2 years and I bought the last one. Now you can too. Alpina B6 2. 8s cost 35. 00 euros (see screen shot from today) and are much less of a car and are often on the market. That's $41. 00 for a B6 2. 8. A 3. 5 is a whole different beast and is easily worth 25% more. which would be $51. 25 in Europe. Then there is the shipping to the port and shipping across the ocean which ads another $4000 ($55. 25). and then the custom duties of 2. 5 percent ($57. 15) and then a full mechanical service. top end rebuild. and full detail costing around ($5000) and you can see that the buy it now price is right on target.
