Video: Alpina celebrates 50th anniversary


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 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.
