1988 BMW 5-Series 535is

Discreet changes to the exterior, larger ones to the technology and an extremely exclusive character – these traits have always distinguished cars bearing the Alpina logo, basing on standard BMW models, but highly modified by the Buchloe-based automaker from Bavaria. In the case of the B10 3.5/1 model we are talking about just 572 units of the BMW E34 sedan with an improved engine and suspension. The powertrain with a capacity of 3.5 l received new Mahle pistons, increasing the compression ratio and power to 254 HP, the engine’s control unit (ECU) was reprogrammed and a special Alpina exhaust was installed. The suspension of the B10 3.5/1 was provided by Bilstein – as always, made accordingly to Alpina’s specifications. The cabin received Recaro seats and a leather Momo steering wheel. The body was equipped with pronounced spoilers, a must-have of the 80s.

This 1988 Alpina B10 3.5/1 is #0009 of 572 total produced. A very early B10, being the 9th car built. It was brought over to US from Japan in April 2015 and is in excellent condition throughout. This is a stock example with catalytic converters in place and 147,489k kilometers works out to 91,645 k original miles. This car original Buhloe build 5-speed car not a conversion. The car is both rust and accident-free with one repaint & the body panels are straight with good gaps. The Delphin Metallic signature Alpina shade with the factory 5 speed, as compared to most others being autos, is a really nice combination.

Over $3k of engine work recently spent. Correct period radio with additional aux port. Front spoiler recently resprayed, I have new gold Alpina decal. Brand new Bilstein sport shocks from Turner Motorsports just installed.

The Alpina striped interior is in great original shape & includes an original Alpina factory installed 4 spoke Momo steering wheel, Alpina gear shift knob & e-brake all stitched with signature blue & green threading.

Accompanied with official Alpina verification documentation.

These Alpinas are rarer than the M series e34, e24. Great car for Radwood...
