The biggest problem with classic Alpinas is finding one, even the most popular models only reached production numbers in the low hundreds, and right hand drive cars are particularly thin on the ground. With fierce loyal cognoscenti all Alpina models are highly sought after and cars like this particular E30 C2 2.7 rarely come to market. With 210 BHP on tap and a host of modifications these particular E30 performance cars make an M3 of similar age look mass produced by comparison. Finished in Dolphin grey this C2 has a superb specification and is one of Alpinas rarer cars. Standard specification consists of: Limited slip differential, long range fuel tank, tinted glass, black leather sport seals with rear head restraints, electric sunroof and factory de chrome. We are informed by the vendor that the bodywork on this particular E30 Alpina is in superb order throughout, the usual suspect areas, the windscreen flitch panel, sills and jacking points and rear box sections behind the rear wheels are all reported to be in good order. The interior of this car is a very special place to be, dashboard ergonomics are brilliant, and the car feels like a bespoke set of clothes to fit your motoring requirements. It is reported that F843 NPH drives without fault with no nasty knocks or rattles whatsoever and the steering and suspension are both tight and firm and all fluid levels are clean and fresh. Showing a current mileage of 100500 miles and with 210 bhp on tap this car really does have BMWs legendary silken wallop, and is most brutal past 4000 RPM all the way up to a top speed of 140 MPH. For a 26 year old car to keep modern traffic at bay in this way is little short of astonishing. These real car driving dynamics really do focus the mind and heighten the C2 experience now it's a classic. With BMWs commitment to ongoing parts supply through BMW Classic, these Alpinas make a fantastic choice for fun, investment and ease of ownership and look incredible value when compared to other similar performance BMWs of the 1980s. Sold with a fresh MOT and road tax till June of this year, an extensive service history and previous MOTs this is a great opportunity to purchase a very rare and collectable BMW sports saloon.
