A total of 507 such machines were produced at one time. The copy that got to the auction was estimated at 72 thousand dollars – this is the current rate. By the end of the auction, this lot can appreciably rise in price.

The auction house Bring & Trailer put up for auction the BMW Alpina B10 Biturbo super sedan, which is a modified modification of the “five” in the back of the E34. This car rolled off the assembly line in 1990 under serial number 53. The circulation of the entire series was limited to 507 copies. At that time, this strict sedan was considered one of the fastest in the world. He scored a 100 kph in just 5.7 seconds, and his maximum speed reached 290 km / h.

To bring the sedan to the record holders, Alpina masters improved the 3.4-liter inline six of the BMW M30B35 with a pair of Garrett T25 turbochargers, lighter pistons, as well as a modified camshaft and cooling system. Such an upgrade made it possible to increase the engine output from 208 to 360 hp. Transmission – 5-speed manual transmission Getrag.

From the standard car, its “pumped” version could be distinguished by a new body kit, an elegant rear wing, special nameplates, 17-inch multi-spoke wheels and stylish Alpina graphics on the sides.

 The auction lot also flaunts Recaro sports seats with a patterned contrasting pattern, and the door cards here are decorated using wood inserts. The same decor is received by the central tunnel, gear lever and front panel. It is equipped with such a super sedan with 2-zone climate control, an on-board computer, electric mirrors and power windows, a stereo cassette system, etc. Over the course of its life, this car managed to run 81,000 km.
