of this Alpina was famous decorator Mr. Bill Diamond. At the time
it was serviced and care for by BMW of Southampton and later, East
Hampton based specialists, Georgica Services. Sold to its most
recent Long Island based collector-owner in 2015, this Alpina has
never left the Long Island Hampton's area from new and has only
been used in seasonal, fair weather conditions. In exceptional
condition throughout, it is a true modern classic, ready to
immediate use and enjoyment.
