World-renowned tuning company Alpina is celebrating its 50th birthday, holding a party at its factory in Bavaria and launching two special edition cars.

You can read a brief history of Alpina in the latest issue of Engine + Powertrain Technology International. 

Alpina has been closely linked to BMW since its founding in 1965, and among automotive enthusiasts ranks as perhaps the best-loved independent tuning firm.

The company recently produced a commemorative video, which offers an insight into the history of the brand and gives a behind-the-scenes look at the development facilities at Alpina’s Buchloe, Bavaria factory.
