The Alpina B10 was built by by Alpina Burkard Bovensiepen GmbH & Co. KG. Alpina was an independent automaker, based in Buchloe, in the Ostallgäu district of Bavaria, Germany. They made high performance versions of BMW cars within the BMW assembly plant, right alongside BMW’s own offerings. This relationship was mutually beneficial and allowed BMW to fill high-end niche markets.
The late Alpina B10 was based on the BMW 5 (E34) series. It featured an Alpina engine type B11/3 that was a 3430 cm3 6-cylinder with 254 hp. It had a 0-100 km/h (62 mph) acceleration of just 6.4 seconds. It’s top speed was a 250 km/h. It came with Bilstein front suspension, Girling brakes and four-piston Lucas calipers.
One version of the B10 was called the Biturbo because it came with two Garrett T25 turbochargers that increased horsepower to a massive 355 horsepower. It is said that it was faster than the Ferrari Testarossa of its day.
The B10 4.0 and 4.6 editions were powered by a V8 engine which it adapted from the BMW 540i. Power was increased from 210 kW (286 hp) to 232 kW (315 hp). 45 4.0 and 27 4.6 cars were built, making them exceedingly rare and valuable.
