Our love for all things Alpina is no secret here at GCFSB. Power, style and rarity augment the standard BMW desirability. Today’s E34 B10 comes stacked with the 3.5L M30 boosted by two turbos, with the manual boost control allowing for 300 to 360hp. Not sure why you’d turn it down on this car, but whatever. Beyond the performance, it’s fitted with the classic Alpina kit, including protrusive spoilers and near-perfect 20-spoke wheels. The audacious body kit is tempered by a beautiful green and omission of the usual Alpina techno-crazy lines. All the better to blow your doors off with, my dear. This car looks good from every angle and boasts serious performance gains over any E34, M5 or otherwise.

144k miles and $22,000 are not small numbers, but they’re a bit more reasonable taken in the context of getting behind the wheel of a true Alpina. A few dollars will need to be spent to get it US legal today, or you could wait a few more years for when it’s 25 years old. Regardless, I could look at this car all day, and many of these pictures will be going in my “desktops” folder. It’s too bad they’re all of the B10 stationary, as this angry green monster looks like it wants to be ripping apart asphalt and rubber every minute of the day.
