Looks like a Japan import with NA turn signals.

NOT an authentic Alpina.

Look at the interior

You're probably right, but I'm not sure you can say definitively based on that interior picture. You can generally order an Alpina any way you want, including with a "standard" non-Alpina interior. I'm not sure why you would, but people did it ;)

Although it would usually still have the Alpina gauges, this one doesn't, and it will certainly have the Alpina numbered plaque which (if I recall correctly) is up top on a B12.

I hear it's pretty common in Japan to create fake Alpinas, and usually they're more convincing. If you put together the standard looking interior, no Alpina wheels, no engine bay shot showing the Alpina intake manifold, and so on, it's about 99.9% this is a fake. In fact I wouldn't be surprised if it's not even an 850.

Well that definitely would explain the price.

Cool looking, even if it isn't a real alpina.

Weir doesn't exactly say it's an Alpina it says Alpina package so that coul mean ground effects... These little dealer jabronies are pretty smart cats I must say

BTW, the white 850 is not an Alpina car, just cosmetics.

I saw an "authentic " Ac schnitzer replica 850 somewhere the other day ,,,I think it was ebay or Kijiji , I'll try to find the link . This one claimed to be from Japan as well *no-no*

...I take my previous post back , this one looks at least descent

^ That is a really nice one, too bad it's got that grey interior.
