  • Introduction

    The B9 3.5 Coupé/1 was introduced in 1983 as the successor to the B9 3.5 Coupe.

    In 1985, the B9 3.5 Coupe was replaced by the B10 3.5 Coupe.


    The engine is identical to that of the E28 B9 3.5 and is based on BMW´s 3.5 litre unit with some relatively minor modifications. Alpina installed Mahle pistons and a more aggressive camshaft, modified the cylinderhead and combustion chambers and reprogrammed the Motronic system. The result is 245 bhp and 320 Nm torque.

    The manual 5-speed gearbox is made by Getrag.


    The B9 3.5 Coupé/1 uses the Alpina-Bilstein suspension with progressive springs and gas-pressure dampers. Behind the 16″ Alpina alloys with 205/55 tires front and 225/50 rear are ventilated discs all around.


    The B9 3.5 Coupé/1 has Recaro sport-seats. It also have a leather-covered steering-wheel and new instruments.

    Exterior changes include a new front spoiler and rear spoiler.


    In Auto Motor und Sport´s test the B9 accelerated from 0-100 km/h in 7,3 seconds and had a top speed of 238,4 km/h.


    A total of 73 cars were built between 1983 and 1985.
