1973 BMW 3.0

Chassis number : 4310004

Share on:

This BMW 3.0 CS ALPINA is powered by a 2,986cc single overhead cam six-cylinder engine breathing through three twin choke Weber carburetors and offering approximately 215 horsepower. There is a four-speed manual transmission and four-wheel disc brakes. When the E9 was launched, Alpina was still years away from being a factory partner and full-fledged manufacture. Prior to building their first official model, the company offered high-performance upgrades, including bolt-on parts which could be added by a dealer or an owner. Upgrades on this car include the tripe-Weber twin-choke carburetors, Alpina wheels, and an Alpina front air dam.

The current Southern California owner has owned this car since 2012. It is finished in Nachtbleu paint with most of it being original. The interior has new tan leather. Less than 2,000 miles ago, the car received a thorough mechanical refurbishment, with the engine being removed from the chassis and fully rebuilt with new pistons and bearings. It received new shocks and a new gas tank.
