Unfortunately this BMW Alpina B11 on eBay is for sale in Canada and would cost a considerable amount to make DOT/EPA legal for import into the U.S. But these early Alpina’s always get me fired up and usually leads me to doing the quick math on the 25 year import rule for the U.S. that gets us out of those retrofit requirements. Considering that Alpina was making many interesting models by 1981, not to mention the mid-late 80’s models are some of my favorites, the next few years should be interesting for importing these cars.
According to the Unofficial Alpina Homepage, hosted on M5boards.com, the B11 3.5 has a massaged BMW 3.5 ‘big six’ motor that produces about 250hp. Not a barn burner, but it was offered with a 5 speed, though this particular example sports an automatic.
