Alpina B6 3.5s  

Many consider the first-generation BMW M3 to be the best drivers car ever built by BMW. But the M3 was built far more for competition and serious road use than for everyday transportation with it´s raw four-cylinder engine which is not nearly as smooth as a straight-six. The M3-based Alpina B6 3,5S, which is considered to be one of Alpina´s finest efforts ever, had the best of both worlds with the performance of the powerful and smooth 3,5 litre six-cylinder engine mixed with the handling capabilities of the M3. That is what I call "the ultimate driving machine". Unfortunately only 62 cars were produced between November 1987 and December 1990, and this is one of them.

 
Interior
 
This car has cloth seats with the distinctive Alpina, Green,Stripes running through it. All the switches work and when at the BMW Show in 2005, on the Alpina Stand, Mr Kris Odwarka of the Alpina Factory in Germany remarked "it is like new"
 
Exterior
 

It looks as it should, Alpina 16 inch wheels, Alpina Gold pin stripes and in my opinion in the Best Colour, Zinnobar Red .It really is as good as it looks in the photographs. It was Zymoled before I put it away for the winter and it shows. All the suspension has been replaced in the last few years and I have the original items that were taken off. The Brakes are now APs and it stops unbelievably. I also have the standard brakes too. A length of cloth to repair the seats, if necessary is also included. This cloth is now impossible to get from the factory. Serviced every year even though I probably only do 1000 Miles in it. I am also an Alpina Club Member, and go to various events.

 
History
 

I have a large folder of History with this car. I can tell you most of the history since it has been in the UK as I bought it in Munich in 2000, and drove it back to the UK. In the mean time I have sold it, to someone I know and then bought it back, as I regretted selling it. This time work and kids have got the better of me and I struggle to even drive it these days so it needs a good home. This is one of the rarest cars there is. It drives better than an M3 (which I have had 2 off) as it has so much torque. Its faster than an M3 and I would suspect almost depreciation proof. Don't miss it, where else are you going to get one? and one in this condition.

 
Price
 

Very difficult to price, but I can tell you it is insured for a value in excess OF £20,000.00, so I would invite offers . It goes without saying No Canvassers and no test pilots. Test drive only after proof of insurance an deposit.
