Throughout its 100 years of existence on the market, BMW and its hardcore division Alpina have built exquisite models that were ahead of their times and delivered good looks and impressive aerodynamics. And one particular model that was considered a Sci-Fi project in the early 90`s was no other than the 850CSi from the 8-Series.
From the E31 8-Series, Alpina also considered that it was useful and benefic for its customers to come up with a more powerful and high-end model. And that was the B12 5.7 Coupe, a hell-of-a-car, with extremely advanced aerodynamics and sheer power under the hood.
One such rare model, the B12 5.7 Coupe – one of the 57 examples ever built between 1992 and 1996, is up for grabs in Munich, Germany, at Classic Driver, the owner asking no less than €400,000.
Even if it is a rare Alpina with staggering looks and low mileage, a lot of people have asked themselves if it is worth the huge price tag. From where I stand, this iconic model definitely deserves more, given the pristine condition it is coming with. And a real BMW connoisseur would agree with me one hundred percent.
This wonderful Alpina B12 5.7 Coupe looks perfect with the Alpina Blue paintjob at the exterior, also a rare thing at the time, fitted with massive 18-inch multi-spoke alloy wheels, carbon fiber hood, new air-outlets and NACA duct mounted in the middle.
The model hasn’t been driven too much, as it also comes with just 8,991 km on the clock. The interior is also looking smashing while the engine is perfectly running.
Speaking of engine, this exquisite lad here comes with a massive 5.7-liter V12 engine, with a staggering 410 horsepower, enabling a top speed of 300 km/h. It also came with a manual six-speed gearbox transmission, and not the standard Shift-Tronic semi-automatic option.
