The BMW E24 is a four-seater coupé in the luxury class from BMW and the first model in the 6 series. Its production began in October 1975 as the successor to the E9 series, while the market launch took place in March 1976.

Stability, endurance and good handling - these were the virtues of the BMW 635 CSi touring car, a successful endurance athlete both in Group A and Group 2. The British competition in the form of Rover and Jaguar had more powerful V8 and V12 engines, the Swedish Volvo engines were equipped with turbochargers, but nevertheless the BMW 6 Series was able to celebrate numerous successes in motor sports. This was no doubt also due to several famous racing drivers who took the steering wheel of the 6-series. The unique thing about the Group 2 cars is that there was only a handful of them, whereas there were nearly a hundred of the Group A cars.

This particiular car with VIN 635180 is the one of the most sucessfull 6 Series touring cars of it´s time. It won almost every race of the 1980 ETCC season in which the 6 series made it to the finish line. Sadly, even though it won every race where it reached the finish line it wasn´t consistent enough over the season to win the ETCC Title, resulting in an overall second place.

The first race, 4 Hours Monza was a great sucess for BMW Italia as they came in 1st place with a lead of over 20 seconds to the Mercedes of Schinkentanz/Denzel. The next round at Vallelunga went just as smooth as Monza, 1st place again. The thrid race in Brands hatch was no glory for the team as Neger over-reved the engine as he went on attack in the first lap.

­Due to a crankshaft failure, the car did not finish at Salzburgring. Brno went of good for BMW Italia until the car got tangled up with an Audi it was lapping at the time. The third win of the season happend at Enna, where the car was out of reach for the other competitors. But the next setback for the Team was not far, as the rear axle broke at Nordschleife. The fourth win of the 1980 season happened shortly after at Silverstone.

The final race at Zolder was a tough one for the Team as well as the BMW. Due to the fact that the team was short on spares, they had to make an engine out of two. But the team was out of luck as a rocker arm broke on the warm up lap that day. They drove behind on five cylinders and finished 6th.
Brand new engine straight from the dyno with 381 bhp (280 kW).
There are two sets of brand new BBS rims as well as some spares available. Furthermore, the current owner has invested a total of over 200,000.00 € in the complete restoration of the 635 CSI to original specification. The restoration was carried out by none other than Rudi Walch, owner of RWS Motorsport. For all the work done on the BMW, there are invoices available.

After the restoration was completed, the car was only raced at the Dix Milles Tours du Castellet and at the Spa Classics.
