Wings and sills removed, restored and refittedMechanically and electrically refreshed by BMW specialists Retro Engineering of Redditch in 2018Original owners handbook, service book,many invoices, old MOTsand a currentMOT(13/06/2020)The brainchild of BMW's Motorsport department, the M635CSi versionof the E24 6-Series arrived in 1984. Its engine was a development of the M1 supercar's 3.5-litre, 24-valvesix-cylinder unit producing 286bhp, the increased power necessitating chassis improvements which included altered weight distribution, revised suspension, bigger brakes and a limited-slip differential. There was also a close-ratio five-speed gearbox (or four-speed multi-mode auto) 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 emphatically in the supercar league, the M635CSi being capable of reaching 62mph in around 6 seconds on its way to a top speed in excess of 155mph.This fabulous, matching numbers, manual gearbox, M88-powered 'Sharknose' is on offerfrom a private collection of desirable classic BMWs and is presented in the rarecolour combination of Cosmos Blue with ablue houndstooth interior. Our vendoris only the second recorded owner after GB UK, the first having owned it for 29 years (during which time it was exclusively serviced by the supplying BMW main dealer, Murketts of Cambridge, the last entry being at 113,000 miles).The car is accompanied by an extensive history file which includesthe original owners handbook and service book in its original wallet. There are also many invoices, old MOT test certificates and the car's currentMOT (13/06/2020). After purchasing the BMW in 2016, ourvendor attended to some areas of the bodywork that he felt needed bringing up to the standard of the rest of the car so the wings and sills were removed, restored and refitted (photos on file). In2018, the car received a mechanical and electrical refresh by BMW marque specialists Retro Engineering of Redditch and everything is now in good order, with an engine bay that also presents well.The BMW M635CSi exudes an incomparable dynamism and is becoming increasingly sought-after. Fewer than 6,000 were built, and even fewer in right-hand drive. In this rare colour and this lovelycondition, we anticipate that this desirableexample will attract many admirers.
