History

Supplied on 7th March 2008 by Sytner BMW Alpina Leicester, finished in Deep Sea Blue coachwork with Alpina wood and BMW Individual upholstery (Z1XX) Beige Alpina leather, specified with extensive options (see below for full list)

The sole UK delivered example and one of only three right hand drive B5S Touring models constructed by Alpina. This uber rare ‘super estate’ was fitted with Alpina’s supercharged V8 which produced 530bhp @5500rpm with 535 lb/ft @4750rpm creating impressive acceleration, 0-62 mph in 4.7 seconds and a staggering 197mph top speed!

In May 2011, the Alpina made the front cover of ‘BMW Car’ magazine, extensively featured in a nine page article entitled ‘ALPINA TOURINGS: B5S vs B10 V8S’. Within the article journalist Sebastian de Latour states  ‘Having driven the B5S I simply cannot fathom why anyone would willingly choose to buy an M5 over this magnificent car.’ Scroll through the images to see excerpts from the article

Maintained by Sytner Nottingham for the majority of its life, the service history is listed below, taken from the original Alpina service booklet. In addition to the original book pack there are extensive parts and service invoices from BMW, importantly including a replacement Supercharger fitted by Sytner in March 2016 with mileage at 104,983 miles
