Alpina has always struck me as one of the most thorough tuners in the world. Their research and development of engines, suspension and exhaust is second only to perhaps Ruf and AMG, thanks largely to their close associations with the factory. Inside the fit and finish of the cars is perhaps even better than they came originally; beautiful details that make the cars stand apart. And visually Alpinas have always been the best looking BMWs out there in my opinion; subtle aerodynamic tweaks, beautiful wheels and striking but tasteful “go faster” stripes that distinguish Munich’s best. But even amongst Alpinas there are special models, and the E34 B10 BiTurbo is one of them. Alpina took a normal 535i and made it’s own interpretation of what the M5 could be; instead of a high-revving twin cam S38, you got two turbochargers with enough torque to embarrass those boys from Affalterbach. Alpina achieved this through a full custom build; Mahle pistons, custom oil sprayers to cool the them, stronger connecting rods, sodium-filled valves and bespoke intake and exhaust systems – but then, Alpina’s never been shy about producing it’s own items. While all Alpinas are rare, the B10 BiTurbo was fairly popular; of the 1600-odd E34s Alpina built, a full 507 of them were B10s.

This collection piece of BMW and Alpina history is now available at ASG Miami with only 58000 miles!
Having been restored and repainted in its original color and condition, this is one of the best examples of the Alpina B10 we’ve seen. This particular example came with grey interior trim rather than wood trim that was popular in these cars and has an interior that is in fantastic shape.
The car blows cold AC, pulls healthily in all gears and is ready for its new owner.
This is one of the most incredible Alpina cars ever made being number 384 of 507. Alpina reworked the BMW E34 chassis and gave it a twin turbo straight six set up that helped this car gain its notoriety on the Autobahn cruising executives and high end collectors to their destinations at the fastest speeds. This car came with better brakes, upgraded suspension, Alpina’s own wheels, custom manually adjustable boost controller for the desired power, and a 3.5 liter straight six with twin turbos attached. This car was truly ahead of its time and by today’s standards of performance, it remains extremely agile and capable of tremendous speeds.
Our Alpina B10 BiTurbo has had over $7000 in recent maintenance with certificates of authenticity and copy of order sheet available from Alpina directly upon request.

Number 384 does appear in the Alpina Archives, which lists the color as Diamond Black over Alpina cloth with a 5-speed manual, and a location in Florida. While Alpinas sometimes have spotty histories, this one seems to line up. And boy, it’s impressive to see. I’d personally prefer a brighter color, but the Diamond Black is quite pretty as is the Alpina-accented interior cloth. Mileage is lower, conditiong is great, it’s claimed to have all the paperwork to back it up, and the dealer claims a lot of recent service. Is it a surprise that it’s priced at the top of the market? Not really. Currently the only E34 M5s trading in this price range are Tourings, but a similar B10 BiTurbo hit over $70,000 earlier this year on Bring a Trailer. This example is similar enough that it should probably be priced in the same ballpark.
B10 BiTurbo always my dream car!
Breathtaking. Anyone driven one?
