RATHER, CUSTOM HEADS, CAMS AND PISTONS WERE ADDED ALONG WITH A PERFORMANCE EXHAUST SYSTEM, BRINGING POWER OUTPUT TO 241 HP.IN TOTAL 136 EXAMPLES WHERE MADE. AVAILABLE COLORS FOR THE B6 2.8L TOURING WAS LIMITED TO SILVER, GREEN AND RED.

ALPINA'S STORY BEGAN IN 1962 WHEN BURKARD BOVENSIEPEN DEVELOPED A WEBER DUAL CARBURETOR FOR THE BMW 1500. THIS CARBURETOR WAS WELL RECEIVED BY THE AUTOMOTIVE PRESS, AS WELL AS BMW'S OWN SALES BOSS Paul G. HAHNEMANN. IN 1964, BMW CERTIFIED THE QUALITY OF HIS ALPINA PRODUCT BY AWARDING BMW VEHICLES FITTED WITH THE ALPINA SYSTEM THE FULL FACTORY GUARANTEE.ALPINA BURKARD BOVENSIEPEN KG WAS ESTABLISHED ON 1 OF JANUARY, 1965 IN KAUFBEUREN, BAVARIA. THE COMPANY HAD EIGHT EMPLOYERS. IN ITS FIRST YEARS, ALPINA ESTABLISHED ITS CORE COMPETENCY TUNING CARBURETORS AND CRANKSHAFTS TO EXTRACT MORE POWER FROM BMW ENGINES, ELEMENTS THAT EVENTUALLY DEFINED THE COMPANY'S LOGO., WHICH CAME INTO BEING IN 1967.ALTHOUGH ALPINA STARTED BY PRODUCING TYPEWRITERS, THE ORIGINAL ALPINA CEASED TO EXIST AT THE END OF THE 1960S IN THEIR ATTEMPT TO MOVE INTO THE TEXTILE INDUSTRY. IN 1965, BURKARD ESTABLISHED A BMW TUNING BUSINESS, FOLLOWING HIS SUCCES WITH INVESTMENTS IN THE STOCK MARKET.
