1983 BMW M3 C1 2.3 Description

Mendel’s Garage is excited topresent a rare and fantastic addition to our inventory: 1983 BMW AlpinaC1

We love the early Alpina cars, and this C1 is a stunning example of a very fast model.The Alpina striping scheme, though complicated, is a very cool period look. The e21 was the last car to come with wheels with exposed lugs. We prefer these over the smooth capped Alpina wheels of the 80’s. This car has the smaller Euro bumpers as well, and looks aggressive with stripes.

The drivetrain is based on the 6-cylinder 323i, but horsepower in this example is up to 170bhp. The engine compartment is very clean. We like the factory Alpina options on this car and the beautiful preserved condition. $33.k may sound hefty sum for an E21 3-series, but this is likely the best derivative of the model.

The C1 received many of the same upgrades as the B6 such as suspension, bodywork and interior, but had its own unique 170 horsepower version of the 2.3 inline-6 instead of the 2.8 unit from the E12/E28. This is beautifully preserved example, and runs and drives as good as it looks.

If you really want an Alpina C1 2.3 in original configuration, this is one of the very few opportunities. According to Alpina registr, fewer then two dozen cars are still in existence
