Alpina Sales Data & Trends for the European Automotive Market
Alpina is a small Bavarian automaker which produces its cars based on existing BMW’s, but with a more performance-minded engine and chassis configuration.
In contrast to other performance specialists which are recognized as aftermarket tuners, Alpina is recognized as an official manufacturer as the brand only sells complete factory built automobiles and doesn’t modify existing new or used BMW’s with aftermarket kits, tuning chips or other modifications. The brand works closely with BMW and their vehicles are built on the same production lines along with the “regular” BMW models, fitting Alpina’s own hand-built engines. The cars are then delivered to Alpina for finishing touches, for instance the famous Alpina 20-spoke alloy wheels.
