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 Porsche 928 and Jaguar 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 M635CSi 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.

This 635CSi presents well overall, wearing what looks to be a Zender bodykit and a set of BBS split rims, which we can’t confirm are genuine but they certainly look correct, an original set of wheels are also included in the sale. The car is supplied with a large history folder, recent work includes new discs all round, new springs, new tyres and various other smaller parts in 2020. The car had a replacement engine in the 1990’s and despite the higher mileage, the car is said to drive superbly and has always been well cared for. The interior has also aged particularly well and resembles that of a car which has covered less miles. Offered for auction with no reserve, this 635CSi is one not to be missed. Supplied with an MoT test certificate valid until December 2024, a V5C registration document and a comprehensive history folder. Consignor Fraser Smith
