1992 Alpina B10 3.5/1

This E34 Alpina sold for $26,000 on 1/10/2022.

It’s hard to imagine being the bottom of the totem pole at Alpina, but the 3.5/1 might just be that car. In part that’s because the E34 lineup was so robust, featuring the cool 3.0 Allrad and the Learjet-channeling BiTurbo. When BMW ceased the production of the M30, V8 powered 310 and 340 horsepower 4.0 and 4.6 models replaced the inline-6. In comparison to those headliners, the 254 horsepower B10 3.5/1 seemed like an article more suited for the corner of page 2. However, consider for a moment that the B10 3.5/1’s power numbers were nearly identical to the contemporary super-saloon S38-powered E28 M5 when it was launched and it helps to restore some clarity to the impressiveness of the products rolling out of Buchloe. Today chassis number 520 of the 572 3.5/1s produced is up for sale in Indiana:

Number 520 comes from nearly the end of the 3.5/1 production run, and though it’s now 30 years old it still looks quite fresh. The E34 is a handsome design that has really aged well in my opinion, and though this one has some condition issues it would undoubtedly still draw a crowd of appreciating fans. The downside is that, like a fair amount of Japanese Alpinas, it’s an automatic – but it also has a lot going for it, from recent maintenance and an expensive trip through EAG’s service department to refinished wheels with fresh Michelin rubber. Add those up and you’re looking at over a third of the current asking price, which seems more palatable than a fair amount of Alpina-badged cars. If you don’t mind the automatic, this one looks like it’d be a nice way to enjoy top-tier engineering without braking the bank totally.

  1. Already sold and no surprise. With other classics of the era setting records (like the 89 CRX that just sold on BaT for $38,500), this looks like an absolute bargain at $26k for a superior machine — even if it is an auto.

  2. Looks lie it already sold, not surprising in this overheated market. $26k for a very rare and unique Alpina E34 seems fair. The Automatic is not ideal but you get the looks of B10 Biturbo’s (but none of it’s performance unfortunately).
