2004 Alpina Roadster S 3.4 Lux

2004 Alpina Roadster S 3.4 Lux

The BMW Z4 was first showcased to the world in 2002, with this striking new addition to the bmw lineup, to be the ultimate replacement for the much loved BMW Z3. Like many glorious past BMW vehicles, the German based company Alpina Burkard Bovensiepen would take a standard looking model and upgrade many aspects from the performance, the exterior styling and more expensive interior refinements, thus creating a more unique interpretation, but still at the same point being closely monitored by the BMW factory. Ever since 1965, Alpina with its headquarters now based in the German city of Buchloe, have been developing luxurious individual creations with this brand being one of the most exclusive in the world, with less than 2,000 vehicles produced annually from just fifteen current models to choose from. 


Exclusivity was always to be the key word, as when this stunning model was introduced, only 370 vehicles had been offered globally of which only 167 right hand drive cars had been produced and then sold by the UK`s only Alpina authorised dealer, Sytner, which today now means that this rare example has become highly interesting and collectable on a global scale, due the limited low build numbers. 


The Roadster S came with the 3.4 litre twenty four valued petrol engine, which generated a healthy 300 brake horsepower, that would easily accelerate from 0.62 mph in just 5.0 seconds, would complete a quarter mile in 13.5 seconds and would climb to an electronically limited top speed of 165 mph, with or without the convertible roof in place. 


Our car, number 137, was first supplied by Sytner BMW/Alpina of Nottingham on 27/07/04. It is finished in Alpina Titanium Silver (354) over Red Leather with a Black Mohair soft top roof. This Roadster was optioned new with the optional £4,850 Alpina Lux Pack which included Bluetooth Phone Preparation, DVD Satellite Navigation, Parking Sensors, Xenon Headlamps, Headlamp Washers, Multi-Function Steering Wheel, ISOFIX Child Seat Mounts, Cruise Control, Alpina Extended Leather and 19” Alpina Dynamic Alloy Wheels.


Over the last nineteen years it has had just the six registered keepers from new. The current mileage reading is just 49,870 miles, which roughly works out at just 2,580 per annum, however regardless of this, our Roadster S has been serviced to a high standard.


The service history of our Roadster is as follows:

  • 27/07/04 - Sytner Nottingham - Pre-delivery Check

  • 16/09/04 - Elms Cambridge - Running-in Check - 1,265 miles

  • 18/01/21 - Peter Vardy BMW - Inspection II - 47,717 miles 

  • 18/11/22 - Arnold Clark BMW - Oil Service - 49,352 miles


The car has also benefitted from a new steering column and steering rack, a known foible on these Roadsters. This was done at 42,893 miles by BMW Exeter. At the same time as the Inspection II service at Peter Vardy in 2021, the brake fluid was replaced by them as well as the Vanos system checked and also both the gearbox and differential fluids replaced. At the Oil Service at Arnold Clark BMW in 2022, the car also had a new ABS sensor and a suspension bush replaced, the air conditioning regassed (blows ice cold) and a replacement can of tyre sealant as the original was out of date.


This Alpina has been enthusiast owned seemingly its whole life judging by its condition and history. Its most recent owner, who bought the car at the beginning of 2021, has kept it stored in a Carcoon all year around and only driven it on sunny days. The state of the underside is proof of just how well cared for and sparingly used this car has been. The car will come with a new 12 month MOT as part of the sale.


As with all of our vehicles, we have a digital folder available on request containing more images, walkaround videos, pictures of the underside and scans of the service history. The car can be viewed by appointment at our West London showroom.
