Tuner Tuesday Alpina-off – 1994 B10 Allrad Touring 6-speed and 1998 B12 5.7

Following up on last week’s Alpina B6 2.8 Touring, I have another post of the boutique manufacturer’s cars. It goes without saying that Alpinas are pretty special cars and quite limited production; however, a few sub-models are notable as being especially rare. Going above and beyond, these cars will really set you apart from the typical crowd – get specific about the configuration, and you can usually count on one hand the number of models that are the same as the one you’re looking at. That’s especially true when you see today’s Alpina twofer – two lesser seen models from a lesser seen manufacturer. Today I have, thanks to a great spot from our reader John, the #2 produced B10 Allrad Touring and the #123 B12 5.7. Which would be your flavor? Let’s start with the Touring first:

4WD Week: 1995 BMW Alpina B10 3.0 Allrad

B10302

The Audis, VWs, and even Porsches featured this week were no real surprises as those companies have been associated with AWD for quite some time. BMW’s ix models have been around for a while, but the company will (hopefully) always be associated with rear-wheel drive sports cars. This means that the obscure Golf Rallyes or Countrys pale in comparison to the rarity of this Alpina, one of just 64 produced. Based on the 525ix, Alpina did their magic to bump the horsepower up 20% to a more-sufficient 231hp. Mixed with all-season grip, this is a unique Bimmer indeed.

Year: 1995
Model: Alpina B10 3.0 Allrad
Engine: 2.5l inline-6
Transmission: 4-speed automatic
Mileage: 62,000
Price: $20,515

No crazy stripes or interior here (although it comes with Alpina Recaros, which should be installed ASAP), but the lovely bodykit and wheels are there. These days, our solitary Alpina B7 offering can be had with AWD, but this is a cool rarity as we reach the end of 4WD Week. It’s in the Netherlands and a ways away from importation, but if you’re an Alpina nut who likes the snow, this could open some interesting doors. They made some Tourings as well…
