    Test BMW 2002 Alpina




    The article is a test of the 115hp 2002 Alpina. Although nominally only 15hp more than the standard 2002, the Alpina version is much faster - almost as fast as the 130hp 2002tii. As the car industry was in a crisis in the mid-1970s the main focus wasn't only gaining extra power but also improving fuel efficiency. Alpina not only manages that but even switches the engine from RON98 to RON95 fuel.
