I’ll admit it: you show me an E28 with headlamp washers, and I’ll unload ungodly sums of cash for the privilege of watching those glorious arms scrub away bug guts and road grime. Of course, if those wipers are attached to a fire-breathing Alpina B7 Turbo – well, that would only hasten my purchasing decisions. Put simply, this is the car that once owned the title as the fastest sedan in the world, and its performance in the early 80s would still make it a force to be reckoned with today. Featuring the best Alpina had to offer, from the KKK turbo with adjustable boost control from the cockpit to lighter pistons, the B7 Turbo is the ultimate expression of the classic E28 535i.
As much as I love this car, I’m disappointed to see the seller’s mention that it was ordered with the leather Recaro interior and not the uber-desirable Alpina cloth buckets. Those are right up there with headlight washers in the “European market parts I must someday possess” category. Fortunately, the other bits are there, including the Alpina body kit, steering wheel, and staggered rollers setup. The seller says the Alpina-Bilstein suspension is still with the car, which could be a blessing or a curse depending on the last time it was reconditioned. Bonus points to the owner for securing an original graphics kit and including it with the sale – a must-have for a proper Alpina car.

Original Alpina B7 Turbo Car #106 out of 264 cars built between E28 (sedan) and E24 (coupe) thru production. Ebay does not let me inter the Alpina VIN# for the car it will only except the chasse number from the car, Alpina at the time would stamped there VIN numbers on the vehicles so here is the Alpina VIN #WAPB7TL015B710106. I had the chasse number and Alpina VIN checked by Alpina and it does confirm and match.
This is an Original Alpina built vehicle NOT a clone car. It is extremely hard to find car there is less then 15 or 20 of these in USA. These car is rare then M5 and it is much faster then M5. These car has 340HP and 501 torque, it is extremely fast car. These car does not have any rust at all it is 100% rust free. I have owned this car for last 14 years and about 8 years ago I did a restoration on the car, I had the car repainted because the clear coat on the paint was starting to fade. When the car was being restored I had replaced:
All the door seals
Front and rear window seals
Window guide seals
New front headlights
New turn signal
New Yellow euro fog lights
All new side moldings
The car is very clean inside and outside and has all the correct Alpina parts with the car:
1) Close ratio 5 speed transmission
2) Extended gas tank
3) Limited slip differential
4) Alpina instrument cluster
5) Alpina dead pedal
6) Alpina front spoiler
7) Alpina rear spoiler
8) Alpina turbo adjust knob for boost
9) Alpina liquid display on vent area (sometimes it works and sometimes it does not)
10) Alpina staggered wheels 16×7 front and 16×8 rear
11) Alpina steering wheel
12) Alpina suspension
This car was ordered with leather Recaro seats that are manuel and also has rear head rest on rear seats.
It also has headlight wipers.
Front and rear fog lights
Front headlights also have city lights (driving lights)
Car does have a A/C but it needs to be charged (I do not know why would anyone need a A/C in these car)
I do have a original Alpina Strip kit that has not need installed yet I will include that with the vehicle.
Tool box in the trunk has all the tools in there.
There is few things that the car need to make a perfect 100% car, dash has crack in it, stereo sound is not coming out I had it checked and the amperfier is bad but stereo comes on and speakers are all good, Alpina digital display in dash vent area sometimes it comes on and sometimes it does not, Paint is in good condition and interior is in very good condition.
These is an extremely rear car and it is absolute joy to drive, it is very very fast car it will blow the doors of the M5. Road and Track magazine in 1985 tested the car and it was the fastest car made.
I’m always on the lookout for a clean E28, but of the more plebian 535is variety. If the maintenance budget were a bottomless well of hopes and dreams, I’d love to own a driver-quality Alpina. And pretty much anything with old-school headlamp washers, for that matter.
