Auction Block: 1982 BMW Alpina B7 S Turbo Coupé

Feb 5, 2020

Category: Rides

The proliferation of BMW’s Alpina models was well-earned in the 1980s, and following the discontinuation of the E12-generation’s Alpina B7 S Turbo, it became clear that a successor would need to step forward to accept its crown. Thus, the Alpina B7 S Turbo Coupé — a performance-oriented two-door that would shake the automotive world — was born.

The 1982 BMW Alpina B7 S Turbo Coupé you see here is, in fact, a rarified platform from the company’s lauded archives — one of only 30 built. On its exterior, the car’s recognizable green metallic paintwork, sunroof, and Alpina branding make their debut, enamoring viewers with a glimpse into the nostalgic history of the brand. In 2016, the vehicle underwent an extensive bare-metal paint restoration to bring it back to its former glory, complementing its factory-optioned limited-slip differential and well-kept green and black interior. Like its counterparts, the B7 S Turbo relies on a 3.5-liter BMW straight-six engine, a Kühnle, Kopp & Kausch K27 turbocharger, and a customized exhaust manifold to manage additional power, promoting the brand’s performance-focused ideology to the masses. If you’re interested in acquiring number 11 of 30, this aesthetically-pleasing platform is slated for auction on RM Sotheby’s website for an estimated $193,500.

Purchase: $193,500+
