1976 BMW 320iEuro-Spec Rare Alpina Accessories M10 Engine Right-Hand Drive Alpina BBS Wheels Getrag 4 Speed Transmission
MotoeXotica is pleased to announce our latest a 1976 BMW 320i with numerous rare Alpina parts. BMW’s first 3 Series was the E21; introduced in 1975 to an warm reception from the German people. The series E21 featured for the first time many of BMW’s trademark design details that are still used today. For instance the kidney grille is unmistakably BMW but most important aspect was that the car appealed to their market base of driver oriented road cars. Wilhelm Hofmeister’s box-wedge design was uniquely BMW and would be used in different variations arguably until the E46 ending 2006. The E21 has been increasing becoming more valuable recently; this is mainly due to the platform being simple stylish and considered a classic. Especially since this car was only offered to the European market and recently legally imported to the States.
This specific ’76 320i is in fantastic condition and benefited from many rare Alpina aftermarket additions. Alpina is a German tuning house that specifically tunes BMW’s and is recognized by the company for doing high quality upgrades. This 320i is powered by the M10 4 cylinder engine that has become legendary for smoothness and displacement-to-power ratio. Mated with a 4-speed Getrag transmission and the optional limited-slip differential this car is a true driver’s car. The engine was given Bosch’s all new exclusive K Jetronic fuel injection system with the other application going to the Ferrari 308GTSi. The suspension is equipped with high quality Bilstein shock and springs that lowers the car slightly and vastly improves handling. With most of the hardware being mechanical and no power steering the feedback from the car is unbelievable. It should be noted that all of the feedback is coming into a right-hand drive steering wheel.
Painted in a beautiful pale red with black trim accents this car screams classic BMW! Overall the paint is in very good condition with only minor imperfections showing. All of the body panels are very straight dismissing body work suspensions; however there is a very minor ding on the hood. Outfitted with Alpina front splitter headlights mud flaps BBS basket weave wheels and a BBS rear spoiler this car distinguishes its’ self from normal 320i’s. These additions are extremely rare an even more rare to be found in such excellent condition as well.
Taking a step into the interior of the car many more rare Alpina additions have been added. These include an Alpina leather steering wheel floor mats and shift knob; all of which are in fantastic condition. The black vinyl seats do not seem to be Alpina’s seats but they certainly have a different material and pattern than what would be stock on the 320i. Regardless the seats are in very good condition with only minor signs of wear much like the rest of the user inputs. This car is something very special!
