Euro 1987 Alpina B6 2.7 for sale

I give the E30 M3 a lot of love for many reasons.  Foremost, it’s my Eleanor, the perfect car that I’d give up all others for.  Its racing pedigree and gorgeous homologated shape only add to that desire.  But I think one thing that allows the M3 to be held in such exceptional regard is that it’s based off the quintessential, and thus ubiquitous, cheap German sports car, the BMW 3-series.  The fact that E30 318s and 325s are such regulars in beater race series like 24 Hours of Lemons and Chumpcar highlights their quick, cheap, and omnipresent nature.  The fact that the M3 explodes all of the good things about the E30 and is so hard to get ahold of leaves it on a misty pedestal while the lesser E30s pass as mundane.

Automobiles such as this Alpina B6 can distract some 3-series attention from the M3.  From the same North Wales seller as the B9 3.5 Coupe recently featured, this 2.7L sedan puts out more power than an M3 and has it’s own eye-catching styling.

The car looks to be in great shape and has covered just over 80k miles.  The silver Alpina stripes look absolutely awesome on Alpinweiss, and if you’ve read this site much, you know how I feel about those wheels (lust).  I also like the fact that it’s a 4-door.  The massive front spoiler looks like it could use some support via some other body pieces on the sides and back, but the railroad look is cool in its own way, and I love the old black lip spoiler out back.  The seller says it’s quicker than an M3, which it may be in a straight line but I doubt it can match the M3’s homologated suspension bits in the twisties.  …

1982 Euro Mercedes 280SL 4 speed

Very nice looking Euro 280SL twin cam. Despite being a Euro car it is registered in California so you can be sure it has been setup to pass emissions requirements.  The Euro car has the nice bumpers and headlamps. It also features the somewhat hard to find 4 speed manual for added entertainment. The interior looks wonderful despite 128,000 miles. It include the hard top as well as the canvas top. A great boulevard cruiser for summer nights. $12,500 buy-it-now price.

1991 Mercedes 560SEC Euro

Number 2 in my last minute Easter Sunday posts is this Euro grey market 560SEC with only 62,000 miles. Sold by the same fellow who is selling the nice 500E that ends today. Perhaps if you buy both this and the matching charcoal black 500E you could get a deal.
Like the 500E this looks to be a very well maintained example. The Euro spec model has the nicer headlights and bumpers, as well as a Euro spec engine.
These are great cars and this is low mileage for the engine. The car is just old enough to avoid many of the electronic gizmos that can cause problems, but new enough that it has plenty of convience features modern Mercedes are known for.
Another fine unmolested example.
