MODEL SUMMARY.

In Titanium Silver Metallic with bespoke Alpina badging. Bespoke hand stitched Alpina steering wheel with Switchtronic buttons, Sports seats with Alpina badging and blue/green stripes, Blue instrument pack with red needles and 200 mph speedo, Alpina sill plates, Rüster Maser wood pack and Alpina build plaque depicting this particular car to be number 841. Tailored Alpina floor mats

110000 miles with service history including it’s original stamped service book with Alpina leather owner’s pouch, service bills/invoices and old MOTs. Clear HPI report. All books/manuals/keys/history/documents present

In recent times the car has had a not so small fortune spent on it by conscientious owners ensuring it remains in tip top condition. The work includes a full Inspection 2 service including spark plugs, Castrol Edge 0W 30 fully synthetic oil, air filter, fuel filter and micro filters, replacement front discs and pads, rear suspension arms, front trailing arm bushes, anti roll bar bushes, propshaft coupling bush, air conditioning and auxiliary drivebelts, rear differential centre bush, camshaft cover gaskets, air flow mass meter, radiator and thermostat, camshaft and crankshaft sensors, four wheel refurbishment, new Michelin Pilot Sport 3 tyes all around and four wheel geometry check/set up. It all amounts to a properly sorted car in fine fettle

It’s very high specification includes Alpina suspension, Leather multi function steering wheel, Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) Air-conditioning with electronic climate control, Cruise control, Individual sunshade glazing with rear privacy glass, Satellite Navigation, Electric memory heated sports seats, Bi-Xenon headlamps, Headlamp cleaning system, Rain sensitive wipers, Electric glass sunroof, Electric rear blind, Rear window blinds, Electric upwardly folding mirrors, Electrochromic auto dim dipping mirror, BMW Premium Hi-Fi with  multi CD, Multifunction trip computer (MFC), Remote central locking with alarm and immobiliser, and Front/Rear Park Distance Control (PDC) This particular car also has the rare option of a tailored Alpina rear compartment floor mat

Costing around £70000 when new, the B10 4.6 V8 Switchtronic utilised a 4619cc V8 Petrol motor developing  347 bhp / 480 Nm and a 5 speed semi-automatic transmission with ‘Switchtronic’ function. The gearbox had unique Alpina software and mapping to give a much quicker, sportier change, and performance was claimed at a top speed of 171 mph, with 0-60 mph in 5.7 s and 0-100 mph in 12.5 s. The claims were actually quite conservative and many contemporary road tests produced better figures. Along with the 5.0 V8 M5, the B10 V8 shared the laurels of being the ultimate E39 5 series, arguably the finest car of it’s day. The Alpina took a very different approach to the M5, being more of a super fast luxury express with a distinct pointer to sportiness, whereas the manual M5 was a more hardcore sports car, much less refined, and decidedly less relaxing to drive. In real world performance, there is little between the two, the M5 having the edge overall, but the Alpina’s ultimate performance so much more easy to access, just plant your right foot and it’s there, with the M5 likely to be scrabbling to put it down

In today’s terms what you have with this B10 is an immensely smart car of much character. Still very quick by the standards of today, there is no getting away from what a normally aspirated 4.6 litre V8 motor with 347 bhp and 480 Nm will bring. A true all rounder, this car will double as a quite beautifully refined fully specc’d luxury car, or as a snarling wheel spinning beast, transitioned from one to the other simply by judicious use of the right foot

All B10 V8 models are becoming ever rarer, and more sought after. This particular car has excellent provenance and history, and is in truly lovely condition, with all the right money spent to keep it in fine fettle. An eminently usable modern classic, that will provide smiles a plenty and sincere pride of ownership, whilst surely proving to be a good future investment
