The Alpina brand is still not widely known in the United States but for BMW diehards the brand is synonymous with performance, individuality and craftsmanship. Alpina was founded in 1965 as a tuner of BMW cars, making it older than BMW’s own M division.  Today it’s regarded as a semi-official tuner to the German automaker, with BMW marketing and selling some of the Alpina models in the US.

Based in the German state of Bavaria, home to BMW as well, Alpina has been around for over 50 years, which is rare in the world of aftermarket tuning.  The brand has been associated with famous race car drivers like Niki Lauda and Hans-Joachim Stuck.

This 1979 Alpina B6 is #66 of 533 produced and has been repainted in its original dark blue color over a black cloth interior with blue and green striping. The original 2.8-liter engine has been replaced by a 3.8-liter inline-six, which was reportedly rebuilt by Metric Mechanic of Richland, Missouri and is pushing over 270 HP.  Recent mechanical work done to this Alpina included a replacement fuel pump, filter, pressure regulator, accumulator, injectors, ignition coil/ module, spark plugs, and air-flow meter. The 15’ Alpina rims were refinished and are in outstanding condition along with fresh Bridgestone Potenza tires. There are 86k kilometers on the odometer and the true mileage of the vehicle is unknown.

These are truly a fun and exciting driving experience and compared to a E30 M3 very different and more fun because of the power and torque.  Don’t miss out on this unique driving experience.  Please note that this will not pass CA emission and as such must be bought by a dealer/collector or out of state buyer.

Cool car, don’t see these very often.

Puckett159

Don’t see these very often and in this condition.

Another great BMW here on GDA. Always wanted one of these and great color combo. GLWTA

carzncoffee

Always loved the look of these and this one has the power to match.

I love the look of this car, sleeper but potent. GLWTA

These are finally getting the attention they deserve. E30 M3’s have gone crazy and these will easily out perform them.

Italguy99

These are wonderful cars and have been under appreciated for what they are.

Fizzyone

This is a rare bird and looks very well taken care of. Curious if the bigger engine would hurt or help with the sale. Either way, great car!!!

Bolt123

What a great car and with the added power this is a fast little car.
