The Alpina name has been intimately associated with BMW for 40 years, and Alpina is probably the most widely and best respected of the German tuning companies. Granted the status of vehicle manufacturer by the German authorities years ago, Alpina continues to stun the automotive world with its superbly re-engineered BMW cars.
This book traces the complete story of Alpina from its beginnings in the 1960s right through to 2005. Focussing on the cars, for which it represents both a catalogue and a unique information resource, it also looks at the development of the company and at the individuals behind it.
For anyone with an interest in these charismatic bespoke machines, this book will be essential reading.
