My Fake E21 Alpina "C1 Turbo" tribute car!

Post by Sierpien » Sat Jun 16, 2018 12:00 am

Hello guys! some time not posting anything about my car!.

As published on older posts of this forum, my car started his life as a 1980 E21 316, with a 1600cc M10.

When a was 20 years old(now i´m 35), i made a full restoration of the car to original state, (it was in very bad shape), and slowly, started to modify it.

As usually, you always want more power, so i swapped the M10 with an M42, then as that wasn´t enough, i turbo charged it!

I know i´ts not an Alpina, but i really like the Alpina looks, so i made my own version of a dream E21.

I also made some custom "C1 Turbo" fake emblems.

Some specs of the car:

Engine:

M42 B18 stock Engine.
Hybrid M42/M10 Getrag 240 with mechanical speedo output.
Full UUC Motorwerks short shifter Kit

Custom front axle carrier.
Full stainless steel exhaust.
Fueltech Ft400 standalone ECU
Coil on Plug conversion with Bavarian Autosport Red coils.
And a Turbocharger!

Bilstein sport shocks.

E21 Recaro Seats upholstered in original black trim.
US spec door cards.
Alpina Steering Wheel and Gearknob.
