Successor to the race proven E9 3.0CS/CSi, the BMW 6-Series was introduced in August 1976, it utilised a modified version of the 5-Series saloon platform equipped with all-round independent suspension 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. Second only to the BMW Motorsport tuned M6 version, the 635CSi's 3430cc unit developed some 216bhp and 232lbft of torque propelling it from 0-60mph in 8.4 seconds and on to 135mph.
Supplied new to Harry Fairbairn Ltd on 29th September 1989, this example of one of the 80’s most iconic sports cars is presented in lovely deep Royal Blue coachwork with contrasting sumptuous Highline specification grey leather trim. Boasting remarkably low mileage for a car that is so accustomed to gobbling up the miles, this example is offered in fabulous order with, at the time of viewing, the vendor stating that all electrical buttons are working correctly. Our vendor has owned the car for some 26 years and is just the third owner of G457 ONS which has always been garaged during his tenure. 25 stamps can be found in the service booklet and an extensive history file including every MoT test certificate during his tenure and numerous invoices from servicing and parts. A truly cherished example, it has also been recently treated to a full body detail and looks stunning. The original book pack is found alongside an MoT test certificate valid until March 2022, this is a very good example of the now, ultra desirable, 635 CSi and with a very attractive estimate.
