For Sale

There Are Only Two Cars Like This In The US And One Is For Sale

Just don't look at the economy numbers.

If you have a penchant for rare BMWs then this will be right up your street. It’s a super-rare 1991 BMW 8 Series Coupe tuned by Alpina, one of only two like it in the US. Imported from Japan, the Alpina E31 B12 5.0 is currently for sale with Hemmings for a cool $75,000. For that you get a Diamond Black Metallic paint, and a back Nappa leather interior, as well as a 5.0-liter V12 delivering 350 hp and 347 lb-ft of torque. In pristine condition, the car could sprint to 62 mph in 6.8 seconds and hit a top speed of 174 mph.

With only 28,000 miles on the clock, this particular model is in very good shape, so should be able to come close to hitting those numbers. But be warned: at 12.1 mpg, it’s not the most economical of cars you can buy.
