The BMW M635CSi was the brainchild of BMW’s Motorsport department and arrived to the market in 1984. Karmann manufactured the early 6 Series BMWs from launch in 1976 before BMW took production in-house. The engine was a development of the M1 supercar's 3453cc, 24 valve, six-cylinder unit producing 286bhp, the increased power necessitating chassis improvements which included altered weight distribution, revised suspension, larger brakes and a limited slip differential. There was also a close ratio five-speed gearbox and a more luxurious interior, while outwardly this ultimate 6 Series model was readily distinguishable by virtue of its 'M Technic' body kit. Performance was impressive with the M635CSi capable of reaching 0-62mph in around six seconds on its way to a top speed in excess of 155mph.

Originally registered on 23rd August 1985 this BMW presents beautifully with gleaming red coachwork and black leather interior. Forming part of a private collection this example has been garaged and dry stored in recent times. We are advised by the knowledgeable and fastidious vendor that this M635 drives with no known faults. The six-cylinder engine runs well and has power that can only be described as adequate by any standards, road holding is also impressive. Supplied with a V5 registration document and a good history folder, this M635 CSi is a delight to drive, the Recaro seats doing a good job in ensuring comfort is paramount. These super stylish BMW’s of the period create lots of interest wherever they appear, particularly at club events. Consigned by Stewart Banks.
