1998 Alpina B12 5.7 LWB - Fabulous & Low Mileage - on The Market SOLD by Auction

Sold by Patina
Auction is LIVE now, and finishes on 1st July at - details above

Number 44 out of only 50 long wheelbase examples ever built, this example is completely free of rust having spent a large proportion of its life in Japan before being brought to the UK in 2017 by the vendor. It is believed this Alpina was in Germany from 1998 until 2002, before export to Japan, so has the Euro bootlid.

Owned by a serial BMW and Alpina enthusiast, he has described this car as “a bit of a beast”, as well as telling us that “it goes like a train”; clear to see where his priorities lie, eh?

But he’s clearly one of us, because he went on to say that he has spent far too much time and money eliminating the sort of minor front-end wheel shimmy that a) plagues the breed, and b) everyone else would have ignored. This tells us that he is ever so slightly obsessive in the way he curates his collection and is therefore exactly the sort of person you want to buy a rare, limited-run specialist sports car from.

With only 50,637 miles (or 81,493 kms) on the clock and in completely original and unmolested condition, this No Reserve auction is your opportunity to get your hands on an ultra-rare, beautifully engineered, high-performance German saloon at what might be a bargain price…

The Alpina Blue coachwork, complete with the correct Alpina chin spoiler and front and side decals, is in stunning condition and a testament to its current and former keepers – but then you’re not going to buy one of the fastest and best engineered BMWs of all time and then neglect it, are you? The panel shut lines are as tight as Bruce Springsteen’s backing band, and the doors close with a precision clunk, even now.

The quad exhausts hint at the car’s performance, as does the B12 badge; it’s very subtle, but, just like Savile Row tailoring, if you know, you know. The Alpina 20-inch alloy wheels are in perfect condition and shod with matching Pirelli P-Zero tyres. Obviously.

The metal sunroof opens and closes smartly, and seals as tightly now as it did when the car was new; panoramic glass roofs might be all the rage these days but nothing says Old School luxury like a factory fitted metal sunroof, does it?

The only flaws are a small blemish on the top of the nearside front wing, and a scratch just below it. Both have been neatly touched-in and are barely visible from a few feet away but the new owner might like to investigate the cost of having both professionally sorted, if only to satisfy themselves that it really isn’t worth worrying about.
