    Offering some incredibly exclusive alternatives to the hottest BMWs out there for several decades now, Alpina still acts as an extremely worthy distraction for anyone in the market for a sporty German cruiser.

    GILES RAMSDEN’S ALPINA B10 3.5 / #BMW-E34 / #BMW / #BMW-5-Series-E34 / #BMW-5-Series / #Alpina-B10-3.5 / #Alpina-B10-3.5-E34 / #Alpina-B10-E34 / #Alpina-E34 / #Alpina-B10 / #Alpina / #BMW-535i-Alpina-E34

    Giles here was kind enough to share his slice of Alpina perfection with us: this stunning #Island-Green B10 3.5 that took on BMW’s E34 5-Series back in the early ‘90s. “I bought it as a shell on a trolley, along with a couple of boxes of bits, after the previous owner lost interest in it.” Giles explains how he took on this huge, yet clearly extremely rewarding project, just a few short years ago.

    Now back to its former glory, practically every part has been bought fresh from either Alpina or BMW. There’s no denying that luxury charm is present by the bucketload too. This one contains touches like signature gold stripes and a sumptuous leather interior. Of course, there's also the re-worked version of the #BMW-M30 #straight-six engine that Alpina took out of #BMW-535i-E34 .

    Only 572 of these super-saloons were ever produced worldwide, so it’s great to see another example brought back from the brink. Top work for saving another modern classic icon from the scrapper!

    TOP MODS: Full nut-and-bolt bare-shell restoration in original Island Green colour, genuine Alpina badging and stripes, original Silver Grey leather interior, #Bilstein shocks and #Eibach springs.

    Grant Kennaird’s #Citroen-Ami / #Citroen-Ami-6-Break-Club / #Citroen-Ami-6 / #Citroen-Ami / #Citroen-Ami-Break / #Citroen-Ami-6-Club / #1968 / #1968-Citroen-Ami-6-Break-Club / #Citroen / #Citroen-Ami

    RC says: It just goes to show that you don’t have to plough in a ridiculous amount of mods to have one of the sweetest rides on the street. Just a couple will do, sometimes just one like a home-made air ride system will do the job perfectly. Then again, I suppose it does help if you start off with a super-cool and seriously rare motor in the first place. It’s not something you’re gonna get away with on your average #PT-Cruiser , right?

    With a 32bhp aircooled #2-cylinder Grant’s #1968-Citroen-Ami-6-Break-Club may not profess to be a cool car but, in our book, that just makes it all the more cool. Perhaps ‘quirky’ is the word but there’s no denying you have to be infinitely dedicated to own a car like this. Luckily Grant has certainly showed plenty of that particular attribute, not least in the design and construction of his custom (and horizontally-mounted) air ride - it isn’t exactly what you’d call an off-the-shelf kit.

    Still, with such an unusual car there’s plenty of inherently sweet design cues from the factory, being the Ami 6 variant it also comes with a few bonus extras like the concave twin headlights. So, with that in mind, this one started out as retro cool, and with a single home-grown chassis tweak it’s now seriously retro cool. Grant, as Uncle Brucie would say, you were right to go lower!
