- Very rare model, 35 examples
- Very good state of preservation
- Bright future in collection
- No reserve
Our Alpina is a very rare and desirable C1 2,3 / 1, which was delivered new to Japan in December 1984. It is one of 35 examples produced between 1984 and 1986 based on the BMW E30 323i, which makes it one of the most limited Alpina series. Our example is presented in a green livery with grey Alpina trim and is in a nice state of conservation, visibly pampered by its previous Japanese owners. All the elements specific to the series such as the rims and the front and rear spoilers are present and in particular the Alpina plate bearing the number 0111 on the central console. The seats in grey fabric with green and blue trims are well preserved, the instrument cluster bears the manufacturer's mark as does the steering wheel and gear lever knob. Its odometer now totals only 86,000 km, most likely original, given the beautiful presentation of the car. Its 2.3L inline six cylinder engine developing 170 hp has recently benefited from a complete overhaul, including the replacement of the distribution, discs and pads, the adjustment of the rocker arms and a general control. This coupe is a beautiful Alpina achievement that is rare to find on the market and whose future in any collection is undoubtedly very promising.
