This car it's really a collector vehicle with only 80.000 kms from new and a totally original condition. One of less than 40 units ever built. Alpina has no records from its production at that time, but they said there were only 192 B2 engines ever built and shared between four different bodies: E3, E9, E12 and some E24. There are supose ten to fiveteen to be still alive. Absolutely mint condition, even body, there is no rust (incredible condition for an E9), and the engine pushes smoothly and really strong. The VIN of this car is 4305389.
This 1975 BMW Alpina B2 3.0 CS was first registered in Germany in 1975 as one of the only 844 BMW 2.5 CS ever built and converted to Alpina B2 3.0 CS specs in June 1978 as certified by Alpina. The car was imported to Spain in 2004 and I bought it in 2013 when the car was parked besides my others Alpinas, one of the most important Alpina Coupes collection in Europe that was featured in the Spanish classic cars' magazine ‘Coches Clasicos'.
The conversión to Alpina B2 3.0 CS specs included the instalation of an Alpina B2 engine which delivers 230 HP with its three Solex 40/45 DDH carbs, specific cylinderhead, new 300º Alpina camshaft, special pistons and handmade valvework, special exhaust, new ventiled brakes and Alpina cushioning diagram with Bilstein shockabsorbers. An interesting detail is the rev counter, with the red zone beginning as of 7.200 revs, instead of the 6.400 from standard E9's, giving an idea from engine's expectations.
In order to lightweigth the car, front bumper was removed and the rear one replaced by a fiberglass one (rear bumper is currently an steel one again), alloy wheels were mounted as well as Scheel front bucket seats (17 Kg. lighter than the originals) with Alpina fabric.
Also the power steering was removed (now replaced by its second owner) and manual front windows devices were installed. The rear windows devices were removed and currently has no down system. The steering wheel and shiftknob are also from Alpina and the car was enhanced with three extra gauges in the dash.
As aerodynamic work the car received their front and rear spoiler, but even the wheelarchs and bonnet splitwinds. As an special option, the car mounts a left powered rear mirror and a right rear mirror, from Freser brand.
As paperwork the car has a copy of the German original Brief, where the B2 engine and all Alpina items are present and an Alpina Classic's certificate of delivery with cylinderhead number 4178 and VIN of the car. Unfortunatelly the service book is not present.
As you can see, the car is one of the latest E9 built, as the model was discontinued at December 1975. Car shows around 80.000 Kms in the odometer and due to its amazing condition, seems to be correct. It was never restored and its amazing condition is really remarkable. As you know very well, it's quite difficult to find an E9 without any rust, even in the undercarriage nor in the body, like this.
It is an accident free car and the paint comes from the Alpina conversion's era and it's almost perfect. Carpet's condition is great and the car owns an Alpina floor mats set.
The engine pushes really strong and smoothly, and it´s awesome how it accelerates. From top speed I have never reached the theoretical 232 Km/h, of course, but the car is really, really fast. I owned some years ago an original 'Batmobile' (2275501) and this B2 3.0 CS is faster than the Bat at any situation. It has a four speed gearbox that works more than properly.
This Alpina B2 3.0 CS in based in Madrid, 15 miles away from Madrid's airport, and I would be more than happy if you decide to visit it before the purchase. Even I could help you to export it and with the shipment arrangements. Clear title at my name without liens and/or liabilities. Car is sold as is, where is and with no kind of warranty.
