Of the 66 ALPINA Z1 RLE built, 35 cars went directly to Japan into collector’s hands. Most of these cars show very low mileage and have been perfectly maintained. Following great demand, they return now car by car to Germany. This is also true of 52/66, which was re-imported and cleared in summer 2015.
This car from the VOLANTE collection shows itself in almost new condition with hardy a single, discernible mark of being used. The entire interior of N° 52 was finished with high-quality, hand-sewn grey ALPINA leather, individual seams are held in the ALPINA colors blue / green. Combined with the aluminum pedals, the Momo steering wheel, the ALPINA rugs, the silver ALPINA plaque and other details, the RLE is significantly more valuable than its Z1 series counterpart. In addition to the Japanese delivery and service documents, it has a complete key set, including keys and rims for the ALPINA rims, as well as the “Das Große Z1-Buch” by Thorsten G. Müller, personalized for RLE N° 52 (valued at 800 €), as well as the certificate from ALPINA for car N° 52.
Almost all ALPINA Z1 RLEs are currently in collector’s hand, offered only on rare occasions to the open market. If you are a BMW and ALPINA collector and come across such a well preserved example as this one, with low miles and high-quality equipment, you better not hesitate long!
