The Original: Technical Data and History

The BMW E38 was introduced as the flagship model of the Bavarian manufacturer and offered outstanding performance, comfort, and design. The Alpina B12 5.7 was modified by the renowned tuning company Alpina. Alpina was founded in 1965 and is known for its high-performance variations of BMW vehicles. The BMW E38 Alpina B12 5.7L is equipped with a 5.7-liter V12 engine producing approximately 387 horsepower. Notable technical features include a sport-tuned suspension, modified aerodynamics, and a luxurious interior design. These models were among the first BMWs equipped with navigation systems and also offered advanced safety features such as side airbags.
