This car is a real collector vehicle with only 80.000 kilometers from new.
Totally in an original condition, this is one of less than 40 units ever built. Alpina has no records from its production at that time, but they said there were only 192 B2 engines ever built and shared between four different bodies: E3, E9, E12 and some E24. It’s assumed that a little number between 10 and 15 pieces still exist.
This 1975 BMW Alpina B2 3.0 CS was first registered in Germany in 1975 as one of the only 844 BMW 2.5 CS ever built and converted to Alpina B2 3.0 CS specs in June 1978 as certified by Alpina. The car was imported to Spain in 2004 was parked besides others Alpinas in one of the most important Alpina Coupes collection in Europe that was featured in the Spanish classic cars' magazine 'Coches Clasicos'.
The conversión to Alpina B2 3.0 CS specs included the installation of an Alpina B2 engine, which delivers 230 HP with its three Solex 40/45 DDH carbs, specific cylinder head, new 300º Alpina camshaft, special pistons and handmade valve work, special exhaust, new ventilated brakes and Alpina cushioning diagram with Bilstein shock absorbers. An interesting detail is the rev counter, with the red zone beginning as of 7.200 revs, instead of the 6.400 from standard E9's, giving an idea from engine's expectations.
In order to lightweigth the car, front bumper was removed and the rear one replaced by a fiberglass one (the current rear bumper is a steel one again), alloy wheels were mounted as well as Scheel front bucket seats (17 Kg. lighter than the originals) with Alpina fabric.
The power steering was removed as well (now replaced by its second owner) and manual front windows devices were installed. The rear windows devices have been removed and currently they have no down system. The steering wheel and shift knob are also from Alpina and the car was equipped with three extra gauges in the dash.
As aerodynamic improvement the car received a front and a rear spoiler, but even the wheel arches and bonnet split winds. As a special option, the car mounts a left powered rear mirror and a right rear mirror, from Freser brand.
The car comes with a copy of the German original Brief, where the B2 engine and all Alpina items are present and with an Alpina Classic's certificate of delivery with cylinder head number 4178 and VIN of the car.
As you can see, the car is one of the latest E9 built, as the production ended in December 1975. It is an accident free car, and the almost perfect paint comes from the Alpina conversion's era. The carpet's condition is great and the car owns an Alpina floor mats set.
The engine pushes very strong and smoothly, and it´s awesome how it accelerates.
