A rare silver BMW E30 Alpina C2 2.7 from 1988 vintage will be sold on April 12 by Silverstone Auctions in Birmingham, UK.

The Alpina E30 has an upgraded 2.7-liter petrol engine, sending 210 HP to the rear wheels. This could easily accelerate you from 0 to 100 km/h (0-60 mph) in 6.9 seconds with top speed reaching 225 km/h (140 mph).
