4WD Week: 1995 BMW Alpina B10 3.0 Allrad


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…

    @Jeff Alpina has a pretty cool list of pre-owned Alpina’s for sale on their site, they also mix in some “not yet built to order” in the list. It’s kind of a goofy site/database system they use for these listings, but for easier multi vehicle listing viewing I recommend right clicking and opening each particular car in a new window (it took me a visit or two to figure this out ;)). It looks like some of the used vehicles they themselves are selling, and some are private owners, I couldn’t totally figure out why the same terrible digital camera took photos of multiple privately owned cars.

    As for the vehicle in this listing. . .it’s cool, I’ve never seen that drivetrain setup before (granted the US never got any e34 in the ix variety), but 231hp, cloth interior, and an automatic, not quite my dream Alpina yet. 🙂

    Almost worth buying just for the seats LOL!

    @Dan – agreed, those seats are pretty hot…I like the alternating stripes, not sure if it was intentional to have symmetrical alternating patterns in both seats and then go rogue on the headrest symmetry, but ya somehow they manage to alternate blue & green stripes down the center of the seats and the overall effect isn’t at all loud or gaudy.

    A nice way to finish 4WD Week. Let’s do it again soon.
    Please make 4WD Week a tag, too, so I can revisit/re-dream/re-marvel easily. Thanks.
