The B10 3.5 is based on a 6 Series platform that's heavily modified in every department, from the suspension and chassis to the inline-six engine and transformed the 635CSi into a street machine that beat up supercars of the era. While most came with a traditional manual transmission, a few were fitted with a Getrag automatic, this car being one of them.
BACKGROUND AND HISTORY:
Alpina started in the mid-1960s as the purveyor of tuning accessories. By the time the first cars were built they were a sophisticated entity and put together as a complete package by Alpina or, uniquely, by Sytner in Britain who assemble all the right-hand drive models. Alpina had only a brief flirtation with turbo charging because the company believed it lacked the refinement, which its increasingly demanding customers wanted. Today, the name is synonymous not only with high performance, but also with the very highest standards of engineering. Alpina works very closely with BMW, and many special Alpina parts are now actually made by the suppliers who manufacture BMWs standard production equivalents. Since 1983 Alpina has been recognized by the German Federal Ministry of Transport as an automobile manufacturer, thus Alpina-built cars are branded and registered as Alpina instead of BMW, although an Alpina can be bought and serviced at some BMW dealerships, and covered if there is a warranty issue. Distinctive features of Alpina vehicles are 20-spoke alloy wheels, "Alpina Blue" patented metallic paint, in addition to expensive interior materials used to fabricate the exclusive interior appointments.
A typical blue and green pattern is often used on interior parts such as stitching's on leather and different fabrics used in the upholstery. A thin, pinstriped style outside body decor set in gold or silver is also a hallmark of Alpina cars. A metal plate inside also proves the heritage and the serial number of the car.
