Lot 114: BMW M635 CSi

Fine Motor cars incl. The Jaguar Legend, Coys (14 July 2012)

The BMW E24 series was the first BMW 6 Series coupé produced by BMW between the 1976 and 1989 model years. The E24 was a replacement for the CS and CSL coupés first produced in 1965. The CS 3.0 was almost changed by adding a few centimeters in height to make it easier for customers to get into the car. However, Bob Lutz rebelled against the decision and rough drafted an alternative version that soon became the 6 series. In July 1978 a more powerful variant, the 635CSi, was introduced that featured as standard a special close-ratio 5-speed gearbox and a single piece black rear spoiler. The bigger bore and shorter stroke facilitated a maximum 218 hp at 5200rpm and a better torque curve. For the first year, the 635CSi was offered in three colours (Polaris, Henna Red, Graphite), and could also be spotted by the front air dam that did not have attached fog lights. BMW Motorsport introduced M 635 CSi in Europe at the Frankfurt Motor Show in 1983. It is essentially an E24 powered by the powerplant of the BMW M1 - the M88 (282 hp). Most of the cars were equipped with special metric 415 mm diameter wheels requiring Michelin TRX tyres. All M6 cars came standard with a 25% rear limited slip differential. The M635 CSi on offer today is finished in Henna Red, with complementary beige interior. Described by the vendor to be in very good overall condition it has been in his ownership for some 14 years and reportedly it has covered just over 80,000 miles from new. Originally used to drive from his UK residence to Monaco, the car has been used very sparingly over recent years. Do not miss an opportunity to be a member of a very exclusive M6 club, D635 AEG is offered with a realistic reserve and 12 months MoT.
