A Beefed-Up Sedan
1987 BMW Alpina B7 Turbo

An Alpina badge on a BMW just signifies high performance and more power. The two have decades of history in working together, and in fact, Alpina is more than just an aftermarket tuner, having some of its models produced at the same assembly line in BMW’s manufacturing plant. One of these amazing machines from over 30 years ago is listed for sale.

Only 278 examples of Alpina B7 Turbo were ever made. Powered by a highly modified 3.5-litre engine that generates 320 hp and 520 Nm of torque, the car only requires 6.2 seconds to complete 0-100 km/h acceleration and reaches a top speed of 262 km/h. Bear in mind it was developed in the mid-1980s where these figures were only achieved by some of the great sports cars, giving Alpina B7 Turbo the title of the fastest sedan.

This particular example was fitted with a five-speed manual transmission, making it even rarer. It is said to be developed for Nicole Racing Japan for its Tokyo Motor Show display and stayed in Japan until 2015. Now the car is imported into the USA and just received a more than US$ 60,000 restoration. Finished in Schwarz Blue Metallic for the exterior, the example is kept in good condition and looking for its new owner on the Enthusiast Auto website.
