Karmann manufactured the early 6-Series BMW's from launch in 1976 before BMW took production in house. The most significant technological upgrade on the E24 range took place in 1982 where after all models were constructed upon the more advanced E28 chassis right through until production ceased in 1989. This 1989 635CSi has the pure elegant lines associated with the earlier cars which accentuate the 'shark-nose' design in the absence of the front skirts and the 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 excellent, original 1987 BMW 635CSi is finished in the BMW classic colour scheme of Alpine White with Cardinal Red leather interior and is one of the last of the chrome bumper models. This lovely BMW 635CSi is supplied with a V5C registration document, an MoT test certificate which expires in April 2019, a good history file and comes complete with all its tools and handbooks. With the iconic predecessor 'E9' shaped examples now being highly coveted within collections around the world, the successor (E24) cars are coming into good favour and prices for well cared for examples are beginning to show some promise of following a similar trajectory to the earlier cars. A handsome, safe and engaging modern classic which would provide stylish and reliable everyday use or equally be at home in a collection for occasional use and classic car shows.
