Films: BMW Alpinas

BMW Alpinas

Petrolicious had the privilege to not only shoot one E24 Alpina but two of these incredibly rare machines.  How rare, you ask?  The E24 Alpina B10 3.5 is the only one of its kind that exists in the Western Hemisphere and is one of 14 that are known to be left in the world.  It is a rare sight to see one of these cruising down the street, but seeing one together with another E24 Alpina is a whole different ballgame.

Enjoy our latest video. We’ll soon be focusing even more on BMWs, so stay tuned.

Hello,

I’m looking for an original engine for my E12 Alpina B7 Turbo. Would it be possible to ask Stephen if he happens to have one or if he knows a shop or somebody who might help me with that search? Regards.

I must have watched this film more than 20 times by now! 🙂 Because it is good of course and the owner seems really nice! But also because I am happy to have a B7 of my own. The sad thing about having a car that is as unusual like these ones is that you NEVER find any articles about them in magazines or so, it takes years between them. So watching this and seeing them in action is like medicine for my soul! Thank you! 🙂 And I would like to make some corrections too. The B7S Coupé was… Read more »

The b10 alpina has newer wheels from the time it was built because of the locking hubcaps in the center of the wheels. Just a minor critique . I started collecting bmw,s In 1980, I have over 30 bmw,s over the years. I kept wheeling and dealing for better cars over the years. I have owned a 320i, 15 Bavarias, 1 2800cs, 10 3.0cs, 1 3.0csi, 1 740i, and I currently own a euro 633csi 1980 and 1973 3.0cs with 3 sidedraft webers . Talk about brand loyalty . If one is interested you can google alpina company in Germany… Read more »

Inspiring footage! When i was 16 i saw my first 2002 Touring in the streets of my hometown. An orange one. Looked fantastic to me. I was wandering around it for about 5 minutes, just adoring it. Moments later somebody was screaming in the distance .. actually it was the owner hanging out of his houses window asking me whether i’d like to buy the car… i was heartbroken because a) it was a really good offer and b) obviously i didn’t have the money at the age of 16 but i swore an oath to never decline such an… Read more »

I believe I saw the green B7 at european car meet at Miller Motorsports Park in Utah. Best looking car there.

As a long time BMW enthusiast, and one who is also drawn to the vintage cars, I have to send out huge props to the owner’s opening remarks about this car community. You are initially drawn in because of the cars – you grow to love it because of the people. A great ambassador of this open, friendly, helpful mindset. And oh yeah – he has some great cars, too!

When I bought my 2002 it was the first car I owned that I felt part of an actual community.

Stephen, the owner is a super-nice genuine enthusiasts who prefers to keep a low profile. He’s active in the BMW community and boards, but he has asked us to respect his privacy and not disclose his details.
