I’ve had this a little while, but don’t think I have shared on this forum yet. The story behind how I got it is almost as fun as the poster. This is an original Alpina e9 CS Group 2 dealer poster board display from the ‘70’s. I saw an ad on eBay for some vintage BMW brochures and saw that the location was close by. To make a long story short I went to visit the seller and he is an older gentleman from France that traveled for his job back in the 60’s and 70’s and everywhere he went in Europe he picked up brochures. He had probably 4,000-5,000 brochures in his house and his walls were covered top to bottom with posters and thousands of beer steins. It was a hoarders paradise. Very nice man that was selling his collection off little by little to pay medical bills. He also is holding a Bavaria poster for me. Also, for a good laugh look real close at the “driver” in the picture. If anyone has any info on this display or the #10 Alpina CS group 2 car (I have seen the #14 car) I’d love to know more about them! I had the poster framed with UV protectant glass and hung in my sons room. Enjoy! John

Yeah Chris, I hear ya, but he is truly in bad shape and his wife is even worse. He’s a bit of a salesman, but overall very nice gentleman.

Wes, I am looking into getting it scanned to make some prints. Would be very cool indeed.

Alpina Automobiles posted some information and pictures today about this #14 winning 2800CS!

“ Spa 24 Hours 1970
One night in July, 50 years ago: BMW ALPINA wins the 24h race of Spa Francorchamps in a 2800 CS with the driver pairing Günther Huber and Helmut Kelleners, although - in the middle of the night - the race is almost over for them. In the depression in front of Eau Rouge everything stops working all of a sudden - all electricity is gone. Not a problem, however, for Dipl. Ing. Günther Huber: he realizes that the safety switch that cuts off the power supply has jumped out. He pushes it down and is back in the race. After 24 hours and with a lead of only 4 minutes over the runner-up, ALPINA made history and won the race ...“
