Lot 266 - 1989 BMW M635 CSi *WITHDRAWN*
|Odometer reading||110,822 miles|
|Estimate||£10,000 - £13,000|
Karmann manufactured the early 6-Series BMWs from launch in 1976 before BMW took production in-house. The most significant technological upgrade on the E24 range took place in 1982 after which all models were constructed upon the more advanced E28 chassis through until production ceased in 1989. Despite offering high horse-power and a top speed af 134mph, demand for the 628CSi remained low by comparison to the 635CSi variant which by far and away formed the vast majority of sales for the E24 family. This 1983 628CSi has the pure elegant lines associated with the earlier cars which accentuate the 'shark-nose' design in the absence of the front skirts and other exterior evolutions which came with the later generations. At the same time, this model enjoys all of the benefits associated with construction on what was then the brand new E28 platform.
This M635 is offered with a whopping history file and is presented in Diamond Black with contrasting neutral leather interior. Having covered just over 110,000 miles since 1989, which is not a great deal considering BMW reliability with the M635 engine, this car is one of very few good examples available which appear to be appreciating in desirability and value. Last serviced under 200 miles ago and offered with an MoT test certificate valid until May 2016, this vehicle has had 18 service stamps from various BMW dealers and specialists, coupled with an original tool kit and as mentioned, a history file that requires a large boot to hold it! The vendor explains that this is a fantastic luxury coupé which coupled with the M-Sport divisions input at BMW, gives the driver the enviable position of speed and comfort combined with a touch of practicality- all wrapped up in a desirable modern classic package.
