EXTERIOR Finished in metallic Avus Blue this rare E21 Alpina sits with a commanding presence and looks particularly sharp against our studio backdrop. In true Alpina style the lustrous paintwork is adorned with contrasting silver stripes across the front spoiler, rear panel, and along both sides. The original chrome bumpers have also been refinished in blue and look great alongside the black kidney grilles and window trims. The car is nice and straight along both sides with only a handful of minor paint defects and small blisters evidencing the car’s 43 years of age. INTERIOR The deeply supportive Recaro bucket seats are upholstered in attractive striped cloth, both in fine order with few signs of wear, even to commonly worn areas such as the driver’s bolster. The dash, door cards and centre console are also well presented having been treated to new leather trim in recent years, and the black Alcantara headliner is free from any marks or sagging issues; the carpets are also pristine. Some nice upgrades over standard include the Alpine head unit, VDO gauge pack, and Momo steering wheel which looks great paired with the wooden Alpina gear knob. The original Alpina plaque is also present and correct on the dash, this car being No. 151 of 533 uniquely numbered examples. ENGINE & TRANSMISSION Lifting the bonnet is a real treat for the enthusiast with some nice cosmetic enhancements hinting at the car’s impressive fast-road specification. Equipped with Alpina cams and forged Mahle pistons the M30 block has been upgraded with a few nice mods including a larger B9 cylinder head, uprated fuel injectors, and a sports ECU programmed to handle the engine’s extra horsepower. The slick 5-speed manual transmission is equipped with a short-shift kit, and power is transferred to the rear wheels via an Alpina limited-slip differential. For the new keeper’s peace of mind, a full mechanical inspection and MOT have just been carried out (February 2023), and the last service was completed in November 2022. The car performs admirably on test and is without doubt the most rewarding E21 we’ve driven. HISTORY FILE Believed to be one of only 83 surviving cars around the globe, this striking example is No. 151 of just 533 B6 2.8s ever produced by Alpina, all in left-hand drive. It was ordered new from Buchloe by a German dealer in July 1979 with production completing in April 1980. The original build specification and purchase price of 47,490 DM are well documented in the accompanying paperwork from Alpina, and an official certificate of authenticity is also on file. Originally finished in Henna Red, the car’s paintwork was fully refreshed in striking Avus Blue Metallic prior to the current keeper (of 12 years) taking ownership. With a B6 2.8 in Polaris Silver selling for $141,000 in the US in February 2023, this particular example offers exceptional value. And, with its current fast-road set-up, this special Alpina is ready to be driven and enjoyed exactly as intended by its next custodian.
