Successor to the race proven E9 3.0CS/CSi, the BMW 6-series was introduced in August 1976. More forgiving than its predecessors, 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. 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 propelling it from 0-60mph in 8.4 seconds and on to 135mph.
Originally registered on 10th October 1989, this distinctive Zinnobar Red 635 CSi is in very good condition throughout with an equally impressive interior trim in black leather. Owned by the current vendor since 2011 this is clearly a highly cherished and much-loved example. The six-cylinder 3430cc engine runs well and the gearbox operates as it should. Performance on these handsome iconic BMW’s is adequate by any standard, however the beauty of this car lies within the styling. This pillarless
iconic 80’s sportscar is in very good condition, with that imposing shark nose, this is an appreciating classic from BMW and becoming popular with genuine modern classic enthusiasts.
