E34 B10 4.6 touring. Does it exist?

Hello guys,

Did Alpina ever make an E34 B10 4.6 touring? If so, I am curious to know how many have been made.

Thanks,

RAymond

I think the Alpjna E34 V8 was a 4.0L, but I'm not sure. But this is one hell of a car ! The ultimate sleeper !

No its not but it is very close. To my knowledge the E34 B19 had an 4 ltr V8 engine with 315 Hp, and was only delivered with autobox.

B10 3.5: 572 units made , 5 speed or 4-speed auto
254 Hp
325 Nm

B10 4.0 V8 : 49 units produced , 6 speed or 5speed auto
315 hp
410 Nm

B10 4.6 V8: 46 units produced , 6 speed or swich tronic
the same engine as B8 but with different exhaust
340 hp
480 Nm

B10 3.0 Allrad: 64 sedans , 70 tourings
231 hp
290 (?) Nm

B10 BiTurbo: 507 made
360 hp
520 Nm

All of them were produced as tourings expect the BiTurbo
The 4.6 was meant to be BiTurbo's replacement and it's probably faster than E34 M5

Thanks for the comments. If the E34 B10 4.6 exists in a touring, then only a handfull examples exist.

Would make a nice daily driver for me in a couple of years.

TAke care,

Raymond

Hello Para22

Here is an 1994 Auto Motor and sport article about a comparison between the E34 M5 3.8 6sp vs the E34 B10 4.6 switchtronic.

http://bmwe34m5.com/faqs/?theme=1&le...nt_id_select=3

Nice detail is that in April 2001, I saw that very same B10 4.6 (No 001) in the Alpina collection which I mentioned before.

Take care,

Raymond

It's a close match , but still the switchtornic B10 4.6 makes standing 1km faster... if the alpina was equipped with manual gearbox it would have been no contest IHMO...
The B10 4.6 is a very nice car Raymond , but didn't you think about switching it for the E39 body?

I like the V8 in the E34 body...it's more restrained than the E39 body...
