Alpina was active in BMW tuning and motorsports since the 1960s and became a manufacturer of passenger cars based on BMW AG products in 1978.
The 2002 tii (Turismo Internazionale Iniezione) was the last and highest evolutionary stage with the powerful M10 engine until 1973 when the 2002 Turbo was introduced, in the middle of the oil crisis.
The so called 02 series were very successful in racing on the circuit, rallies, hill climbs or slalom because of their robustness and reliability and were the starting point for many tuning companies such as Alpina, Schnitzer, Koepchen, GS-Tuning, etc…
This offered car is an original BMW Alpina 2002 tii group 2 what always was a race car; therefore no rust.
See its original documents:
This Alpina shows itself in complete race trim. The sight alone takes your breath and kicks you back to the motorsport era of the 70s and 80s and the ambience in the interior underlines this perfectly with its typical smells and features.
The engine had been completely rebuilt 3 years ago with photo documentation. It is an Alpina flat slider with Schrick camshaft 328/336°. As well the Kugelfischer injection completely was overhauled at Bosch Nuremberg with the highest injection quantity, which is important for racing engines.
Many other original Alpina Group 2 racing parts:
- e.g. original Alpina rims 3-piece
- Alpina steering wheel
- Alpina front camber adjustment, steering ratio short…
Other parts that had been revised:
- New suspension from H&R: new springs, original Bilstein dampers revised and optimised for circuit use. Shocks tuned to new springs and balanced for Nordschleife + GP courses.

- Wear and safety relevant parts revised
- new: brake callipers, brake lines, brake master cylinder, brake force regulator
- fire extinguisher
- side impact protection
- main switch

The old (original) car passport is also available with stamps from races (e.g. 1979 – 1981).
The car is very good to drive and still fast. It is not as complicated in terms of set-up and preparation as some other historic race cars. Really fun, especially when the slicks are sticking!!!
A dry sump lubrication is optional, but currently not installed.
The car is original revived and ready to drive.
The car was previously used by the father of the owner.
Here is some insights from the Owner:
The Car was built up by the previous owner Udo Jesinghaus on the basis of a new body. It was a racing car from the beginning, all special racing parts (for example the original Alpina parts) in engine, gearbox, chassis, etc. were already included.
After purchase by my father, the car was further developed. The focus was on long-distance capability and durability. For example, a rear axle lock and a cooler for the rear differential were installed to ensure durability and axle temperatures for races longer than sprint distance. .
After a few races (see car passport) my father got the chance to drive faster cars in the DRM (Deutsche Rundstrecken Meisterschaft) for the racing team Obermaier Racing (mainly Porsche 934 Turbo, but also BMW M1 Procar). Therefore, the 2002 was very rarely used overall, the body is accident-free.
The car was ALWAYS kept dry and protected in the closed hall of my parents’ business.
In 2018 we decided to revive the car in its original condition. The car is ready for use and has been driven by me at trackdays /test and setting rides for the last 2 years.
The car is not (yet) homologated to a current regulation, because I wanted to keep the original condition. There are 2 seats mounted, so “taxi driving” at trackdays, test and set-up drives or club events is possible. For this purpose, an exhaust with silencer is mounted, the original “flame pipe” is available.
Take the chance and bid on this famous race car.
