Thread: Alpina Z1 !

    Alpina Z1 !

    I had no idea that Alpina tuned the Z1 as well. According to the text they did 66 cars. Pretty interesting! Maybe something for one of the Alpina (Z8) owners to pick as a stable mate!

    I thought the Z1 was not road legal in the US?

    It was not imported officially to the US, but there are some around and registered with plates.

    Anything on wheels and >25 years is road legal in the US. California is a different story.

    Besides the (welcome) power increase from 170 to 200 HP, the differences between the regular Z1 and the Alpina RLE are too small to justify a premium of >100%. That's just my opinion as the owner of a regular Z1.
