BMW has proven to be sleek with their artistic designs, A rarely seen 1987 BMW Alpina B7 Turbo Coupé/3 is up for auction at Rm Sotheby’s.
The beautiful black vehicle features has a red leather interior. Inside, a plaque reads “Autosattlerei Wenger, Exklusive Interieur.” The auction house suggests that this indicates the interior was retrimmed into its present red leather finish and fitted with sport seats after leaving Alpina.
The model is one of only 17 catalyst-equipped Alpina B7 Turbo Coupés, producing 320 brake horsepower and a menacing 520 nm of torque at a relatively low 2,400 RPM.
According to RM Sotheby’s, “The engine boasts slightly lower compression, a ratio of 7.45:1 instead of 8.0:1. While normally slightly less power would make a model less desirable, these are very highly sought after in Alpina circles due to their rarity and lower-end grunt, making for more tractable performance.”
