Successor to the race-proven (E9) 3.0CS/CSi high-performance sports coupes, the 6-Series was introduced in August 1976. More forgiving than its predecessors, it utilised a modified version of the (E12) 5-Series saloon platform equipped with all-round independent suspension (coil and wishbone front, trailing-arm rear) and powerful disc brakes. A natural rival to the 928 and XJS, the four-seater 6-Series proved more capacious than the Porsche and sportier than the Jaguar. Immediately recognisable thanks to its distinctive 'shark nose' frontal styling and thin pillared glasshouse it boasts real road presence, an impression backed up by the various versions of BMW's mighty M30, SOHC, straight-six engine fitted throughout the range. Second only to the BMW Motorsport tuned M6 version, the 635CSi's 3430cc unit developed some 216bhp and 232lbft of torque (outputs that were reputedly sufficient to propel it from 0-60mph in 8.4 seconds and on to 135mph).

This example, finished in Dolphin Grey with contrasting Portland Grey upholstery, was supplied new by Blue Bell BMW Wilmslow on 1st March 1990 and registered to the current owner’s company. It has remained with the same family (father & son) to date. Now showing 68,190 miles (at the time of consignment) which is substantiated by the service history recorded in both the original service book and 28 accompanying MOT Certificates originating from 1993. Studying the comprehensive history file, this car has patently benefited from a no expense spared maintenance regime, fundamentally being dry-stored in our vendor’s garage and only covering some 2,450 miles during the last 15 years. Offered with the original and complete handbook pack, near complete tool kit and the now very rare BMW torch to be found within the glove compartment. Viewing is highly recommended to appreciate the quality of this desirable 80s BMW flagship model along with its comprehensive history file. An example not to be missed by the serious collector.
