Alpina B3 S checkbook very good condition collector's item 305 hp (2005)
In the 1960s, Burkard Bovensiepen began classic tuning under the name Alpina: carburetor system, spoiler, suspension parts for the BMW 02 models and the BMW 5 Series built from 1972 onwards. Alpina became a manufacturer and courageous pioneer in technology in 1978 with the legendary B7 Turbo models and the B6 2.8. Alpina also took on the fourth BMW 3 Series generation (E46) and presented, so to speak, as the successor to the B3 3.3 in 2002 at the Paris Motor Show the B3 S, which produced 305 hp at 6,300 rpm and whose maximum torque was 4,800 rpm. According to research, Alpina produced only 807 copies of the B3 S model based on the BMW E46.
