Replacing what was then the fastest four-door saloon in the world, the B7 S Turbo certainly had big shoes to fill. Now graced with a 3.5-litre inline-six cylinder engine, boost on the turbos was increased and with a new ignition system, output was increased to 330 bhp and 500 nm of torque . . . the same amount of torque produced by BMW’s E39 M5, a car that would not go into production for another 17 years.
First registered in January of 1982 and delivered new in Germany, this is the 22nd B7 S Turbo built of a total production run of just 60 examples. Finished in Dark Sapphire Blue metallic over an interior swath in Alpina cloth, the car resided in Germany prior to being purchased by the consignor in 2015. Invoices on file show that the car was serviced at a cost of over 8,500 CHF in October of 2016 and has been driven roughly 100 km since. More recently, it was shown at the 2018 Concours d’Elegance Suisse.
Today, the B7 Turbo S presents in excellent, well-preserved condition. While the odometer is currently showing 57,861 km, the car’s true mileage is in excess of 220,000 km. The odometer was replaced some time before a cosmetic refreshing prior to the consignor’s purchase. For the family of four looking for an exciting and modern classic, this would be a blast to drive and enjoy.
Please note that contrary to the catalog description, this car’s true mileage is in excess of 220,000 km. Veuillez noter que, contrairement à la description du catalogue papier, le kilométrage réel de cette voiture est supérieur à 220 000 km.
