About

The E30 333i was a joint development between BMW SA and Alpina Germany and were offered for sale from April 1985 to September 1987. Many mechanical components are shared with the German Alpina B6, which also used the M30 big six engine. This particular vehicle was built in Jan 1986 and is chassis number 101 of the 204 units BMW SA advertised they would build. Buyers had to decide between air conditioning and power steering as only one could be fitted as standard. This can be externally identified by the presence of driving lamps in the power steering cars and grille covers in the air-conditioned units, the A/C hardware precluding the fitment of standard driving lamps.

Only four colours were available, Henna Red, Ice White, Aero Silver and Diamond Black. M-Technic 1 aerodynamics package and Alpina big brake kit were standard. Options included a sunroof and ABS brakes.

Originally conceived for competition in Group One to be pitted against the likes of other South African big capacity specials such as the Ford Sierra XR8 and Alfa Romeo GTV 3.0. The car was left without a formula when Grp1 was cancelled at the end of 1985.
