The B12 5.7 Coupe was one of the fastest cars Alpina have ever made. It is based on the BMW 850CSi which was presented in later 1992. Its engine is based on the BMW Motorsport prepared 5.6-litre V12 which produces 380bhp. Alpina modified the engine capacity to 5.7-litres, modified the intake, crankshaft and camshafts. A new exhaust system was used with Alpina’s own stainless steel catalytic converters and Motronic engine management system was reprogrammed. These changes resulted in 416bhp and 570Nm of torque.

The standard gearbox was a Getrag 6-speed manual; the optional Shift-Tronic involves electronic clutch management system developed by Alpina in conjunction with LUK GS, and the B12 5.7 Coupe is the only Alpina offered with this system. The brakes are the same as the 850CSi, however the wheels are bigger: 18” with 245/40 front and 285/35 rear tyres. This model can achieve 0-100km/h in 5.8 seconds, covering 1,000 metres in 24.9 seconds, with a top speed of 300km/h. A total of 57 B12 5.7 coupes were made.

This extremely rare Alpina B12 5.7 Coupe is the last of only thirty-two made in the desirable shift-tronic version, from a total production of just fifty-seven cars, built by Alpina. It boasts the typical Alpina blue livery with original matching full leather interior. With its third owner since 2005 when the car had covered just 86,000 kilometres, it was professionally stored from 1999 to 2005. Having now done some 140,000 kilometres, the car is described as in very good overall condition, both mechanically and cosmetically.

The car is in fact in a desirable unmolested original condition, having always been serviced and repaired as necessary throughout its life and regular driven by only three Alpina enthusiasts. It comes with all books, keys, service records, registration papers, in the original Alpina wallet. A full service history, always performed by BMW/Alpina garages in Germany is available in the car’s file.

Definitely an opportunity to buy this incredibly rare car, ready to use at a modest outlay – certainly a fraction of the prices of comparable Italian exotica. Not to be missed.


Dieses extrem seltene Alpina B12 5.7 Coupe ist das letztgebaute Exemplar von nur 32 in der begehrten

Shift Tronic Version aus einer totalen Produktion von nur 57 Fahrzeugen von Alpina. Ausgestattet in der typischen

Alpina Farbgebung metallic – blau mit originalem Lederinterieur, befindet sich der Wagen gegenwärtig seit 10 Jahren

in 3. Hand und hat eine Laufleistung von total ca. 140000 km. Der als in sehr gutem Zustand beschriebene B 12

besticht vor allem durch seinen unverbastelten sehr guten Original – Zustand und seine vorliegende Service – Historie.

Er besitzt Handbücher, alle Schlüßel, Service – Heft, frühere Zulassungs – Papiere und seine originale Alpina

Ledermappe. Die Service – Arbeiten wurden bei BMW – Alpina Niederlassungen ausgeführt und können im Dossier

eingesehen werden.

Diese Gelegenheit ein so extrem seltenes Fahrzeug zu erwerben – zu einem Bruchteil der Preise seiner italienischen

Rivalen – ist äußerst selten.
