Although the cars is now forty years old it had shown just how solid these German cars were when first built.

The second was a newer Alpina F10 D5, the tuning company now owned by BMW have taken a donor 535 diesel and added there own styling tweaks and badges along with an increase in power to 347bhp and an impressive 516lb-ft of peak torque. The car can hit 0-60 in 5.1 seconds and hit a top speed of 171 mph, not bad for a comfy four door diesel saloon. This car is now live on the Collecting Cars website and closes on Wednesday evening for bids.
