To fully appreciate an Alpina B10, it is necessary to drive the more modest variants first. It is only after a few hours behind the wheel of the standard car that one can appreciate the pressure Alpina were under to improve on a chassis that was already an industry game changer. As ever, the engineers at Alpina did not disappoint. The B10 Alpina suspension setup was sublime and offered improved high-speed road holding whilst retaining the already legendary, smooth and compliant chassis of the E39. The B10 took super-saloon handling to new heights and raised the bar for all manufacturers.

The engineering attention to detail did not stop there. BMW’s silky smooth M62 V8, presented a challenge as the standard unit was already superb. Alpina worked their magic on virtually every aspect of the motor. Capacity was taken to 4. 6 litres, Alpina crankshaft, altered camshaft timing, Alpina pistons, Alpina cylinder heads, Alpina camshafts, Alpina engine management and Alpina exhaust system, took the power to 347 bhp with 480Nm of torque.

Alpina’s now highly developed Switch-Tronic gearbox gave the best of both worlds. Automatic and silky-smooth manual changes with shift buttons on the back of the Alpina steering wheel. Shod with Alpina 19” wheels and larger Alpina front brakes to help support the increase in performance.
It wasn’t left there. Aerodynamically the car benefitted from Alpina front and rear spoilers. Cosmetically the car was further garnished with Alpina stripes, Alpina exterior trim, Alpina badges, Alpina interior trim, Alpina instruments, Alpina leather, Alpina floor mats and Alpina embossed wood trim.

Our history with the current owner of this immaculate Alpina B10 goes back 25 years, enabling us to fully understand his incredibly high standards when he was looking to purchase a B10. The Alpina was to sit alongside his other cars in a beautiful and varied collection. We carried out a pre-purchase inspection on his behalf. The then owner ensured us we would not be a disappointed with the condition. He was a car detailer and was able to pass on an encyclopaedic knowledge of his car. We were not disappointed. The car was without doubt one of the finest examples the workshop team had seen for a long-time. Our instruction was to buy this B10 before somebody else did.

We then performed an age-related program of preventive maintenance ensuring the car wanted for nothing, it was protected for future generations and utterly turnkey. The following was carried out prior to delivery:Service
New brake fluid and coolant
All brake hoses replaced
Auto gearbox oil and filter service New cam cover gaskets
New rear suspension
New washer bottle
New n/ s/ r window seal
New o/ s/ r high gloss black trim New o/ s/ f door seal
New fuel cap
Rebuilt front brake calipersRemoval of all undertrays and splash shields. Bodywork inspection and very thorough underside clean. Car, cavities and pipework protected with clear cavity wax and Tectyl ML.

The car has covered only 57, 000 miles and features an immaculate full-service history from Sytner BMW from new. The car is in show condition throughout with the peace of mind that the structure is as immaculate as the rest of the car having benefitted from thorough future proofing.

It was inevitable and we will see major changes to the brand making it less exclusive and niche. This will take Alpina far closer to mass-production than ever, which of course it ...
