The “Bayern-Express” M635 CSI debuted 1984 and is based on the E24 which came on the market in 1976. The M635 CSI being the “sporty” high-end version of the BMW 6 Series. This elegant coupe designed by chief designer Paul Bracq is a milestone in the history of the automobile. The four-valve M88 engine built in the M635 originally came from the M1 and was equipped with two overhead camshafts and six single-butterfly valves. This provided the car with a 3.5 L engine with 286hp. ABS belonged to the standard equipment, otherwise the M635 CSI was lowered and equipped with a sports gear and differential lock to bring the high performance to the road.
This is a great opportunity to acquire an excellent BMW M635 CSI (often referred to as the M6) in an attractive colour scheme of diamond metallic black, with shadow-line and pearl beige interior. The original three piece aluminium split rims appear in very good condition.
This example has been valued by a BMW specialist at 67,000 EUR and listed as condition 2. The previous owner has owned and enjoyed the car since 1997. Between 2005 and 2006, €10,000 was spent on a complete engine and transmission overhaul, the paperwork is present to document this. The interior appears unmarked and remarkable for the age, with electric windows all round, an electric sunroof and air conditioning working as they should. A desirable, well maintained model that rarely presents like this should not be missed by aspiring collectors.
