"195 bhp, 1,998 cc OHC inline four-cylinder engine with fuel injection, five-speed manual G transmission, independent front suspension with coil springs, McPherson struts, anti-roll bar, and telescopic dampers; independent rear suspension with coil springs, semi-trailing arms, anti-roll bar, and telescopic dampers; and four-wheel ventilated disc brakes. Wheelbase: 2,499 mm
 

  • One of the most exciting variants of the 2002 platform
  • Just over 30,000 kilometers from new
  • Garnet Red Metallic and fitted with Recaro Sport Seats
  • Modified to A4s specification by Alpina, and fully certified



Considered the definitive sports sedan, the BMW 2002 transformed the company into what it is today. With roots branching into the ‘New Class’ of family sedans first offered in the early 1960s, with four-cylinder, single-overhead camshaft engines, these vehicles defined BMW for years to come. The success of these cars cannot be understated. During the 12-year model run, a total of 398,434 were built, including 196,845 2002s between January 1968 and June 1975.

The A4S could be had for roughly twice the price of a standard 2002. However, many would argue that the premium was well worth it for the added performance, as power was increased to 195 horsepower. Originally finished in Garnet Red metallic with a fabric interior, chassis number 02735630 was born as a 2002 Tii and immediately built to Alpina A4S specifications. 

Even in standard form, the 2002 has always been considered as one of BMWs most enjoyable cars to drive. The Alpina A4s ratchets up the excitement even more, as one of the rarest and most desirable variants of the 2002. It would hold pride of place in any enthusiast’s garage, or better yet, on the open road!"

Certified by who??

my relative had an A4s converted by a dealer in the uk, proper job all receipts etc, he even managed to get some info out of Alpina, but they didn't certify it, they said whilst they did supply all the parts to the dealers some of them fitted "other" non Alpina heads so they basically wouldnt certify the car I've seen one real one, had every thing inc a plaque on the dash (I think) this one looks a bit like my relatives it may have the induction, suspension, brakes, drive train etc, but that might be a Frankenstein car as in bits from everywhere!

i still like it but not for that much unless it has spotless documentation.

It's 175HP A4s and not 195HP. Car has documentation but since Alpina converted it, it had quite a bit changes ;)
