2002 BMW ALPINA (E39) B10 V8 S

KEY FACTS

  • A low-mileage example of the bespoke 5 Series ‘super saloon’, with a sought-after specification.
  • Under the bonnet is the 4.8-litre V8, producing 375bhp and 376lb-ft of torque, coupled to the five-speed automatic transmission with Switch-Tronic controls.
  • It benefits from a comprehensive service history.
  • While an original UK specification car, it was first registered with the DVLA in May 2021, as prior to this it wore Guernsey plates.

EQUIPMENT AND FEATURES

  • This Alpina was specified with special order Night Blue paintwork and full Beige Nappa leather with Night Blue piping and an Anthracite headlining.
  • On the outside, it features 19-inch alloy wheels, a rear spoiler and M5-style mirrors.
  • The cabin is equipped with dual-zone climate control, an electric rear blind, voice control system, cordless phone, a six-disc CD changer and a HiFi speaker system.
  • There are also front and rear parking sensors, cruise control, and the BMW media system with satellite navigation.
  • Its original owner’s manuals, service book, sales invoice and logbook will be included, along with various supplementary manuals and a radio pass card.

CONDITION

  • No known bodywork damage.
  • Its Night Blue paintwork is in generally very good condition, though there are small stone chips on the bonnet and front bumper.
  • The interior was reupholstered by Alpina when new, now presenting with just a few light creases and wrinkles. It still looks superb for its age, commensurate with the low mileage.
  • The passenger seat backrest motor is currently inoperative.
  • The most recent MOT test was on 5 May 2021 at 57,905 miles, which was a pass with three advisories to monitor worn front tyres and a minor oil leak.

SERVICE HISTORY

  • Its most recent service was in June 2021 at 58,000 miles, where mechanic Joe Green replaced the engine oil, gearbox oil and cam chain tensioners, before re-gassing the air conditioning.
  • During the vendor’s ownership, the speedometer matrix and stereo backlight have been repaired, while a new satellite navigation CD has been installed and the wheels have been refurbished.
