About ALPINA B6 Touring Limited Edition model:
The ALPINA B6 Touring Limited Edition model was produced fron 1996 to 1998 ONLY to Japan market. The purpose for B6 2.8L Touring was to take advantage of market opportunity when BMW Japan decided to not import the BMW 328i Touring to Japan. BMW never produced an M3 wagon for series production, but Alpina took to task to try and fill the void in the 1990s. This was an interesting Alpina, as the engine capacity was not increased. Rather, custom heads, cams and pistons were added along with a performance exhaust system, bringing power output to 241 bhp
In total 136 examples where made. Available colors for the B6 2.8L Touring was limited to silver, green and red. This car is nr. 45.
Alpina's story began in 1962 when Burkard Bovensiepen developed a Weber dual carburetor for the BMW 1500. This carburetor was well received by the automotive press, as well as BMW's own sales boss Paul G. Hahnemann. In 1964, BMW certified the quality of this Alpina product by awarding BMW vehicles fitted with the Alpina system the full factory guarantee.
Alpina Burkard Bovensiepen KG was established on 1 of January, 1965 in Kaufbeuren, Bavaria. The company had eight employees. In its first years, Alpina established its core competency tuning carburetors and crankshafts to extract more power from BMW engines, elements that eventually defined the company's logo, which came into being in 1967.
Although Alpina started by producing typewriters, the original Alpina ceased to exist at the end of the 1960s in their attempt to move into the textile industry. In 1965, Burkard established a BMW tuning business, following his success with investments in the stock market. He started the tuning business in an outbuilding of the original Alpina typewriter factory. The company worked on carburetors and revised cylinder heads.
