A rare 1991 BMW 8 Series Coupe by Alpina is up for grabs at Hemmings for $75,000.

One of the only two cars of this kind in United States, this 1991 BMW Alpina E31 B12 5.0 has been imported from Japan and comes with a Diamant Schwarz Metallic paint combined with a Leder Nappa/Schwarz interior. It is powered by the mighty V12 5.0-liter engine developing 350 PS (257 kW) and 470 Nm (347 lb-ft) of torque.

Back in the day it was able to run the 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) sprint in 6.8 seconds before topping out at more than 174 mph (280 km/h), not too shabby for a car that's almost a quarter of a century old. This particular vehicle has been driven for only 28,000 miles (45,061 km) and appears to be in top notch condition. If you decide to buy it, we have to warn you the fuel consumption in the city stands at 19.4 liters / 100 km (12.1 mpg US or 14.5 mpg UK), according to Alpina.
