Alpina B12 6.0 - E38/2001/42K miles/£(un)Realistic?

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

A very rare Alpina indeed! Lovely looking car for sure, but what's everyone's opinion on the asking price?! 

 

It's also Category D recorded!

Cheers, Dennis!

There was a fairly well read thread on the Alpina forum iirc about this car when it was written off by the insurance company and the hell the owner went through.

 

Yes it is absolutely stupid money imho

Hi Inikboo,

 

I agree! A deluded seller along with many others who have potentially interesting cars but are missing important aspects/features/parts and/or are Category recorded or where the seller can't spell/create proper sentences !

 

An E34 B10 (not the highly sought after Bi-Turbo) is also on Ebay but it's got the Hartge Classic 19's on it ! The seller can't even spell 'Hartge' properly despite the logo being in front of his face on the centre caps! ..  up at £17K!

For some weird reason, I've recently developed an itch for another Alpina, so been looking at what's around, most likely won't actually purchase though - have my mind on a few other's when the time's right!

 

Cheers, Dennis!

Arsehole seller with a shite advert for a Cat D car and asking £100k...

 

Arsehole, as stated above :roll:

 

At that price, it'd need to be concourse, never mind not a Cat D!

The pictures of the significant damage are on the alpinaregister thread; front wheel strut tower damage, front suspension hugely out of line, entire nearside damage including a crease across the 'c' pillar. I believe Roofer knew the original owner.

I suspect his wife has told him to get rid of it, hence the price which indicates that actually he doesn't want to get rid of it.  After a few weeks, he can genuinely turn round and say "sorry darling, it hasn't sold, best we keep it".

I was at the 40th Birthday bash at Alpina with this car,

it was over was over getting the Alpina logos put on the seats as it was built without, IIRC it went off at a silverstone BMW day not too long after the Alpina visit, 

was a very nice car back then.

Looks in fine fettle! He’s just got it up on a ramp with the 911 under it. Both gathering dust!!

 

Maybe he's hoping that the ramp will fail and improve the looks of the Beetle.
