BMW and its M-division gave birth to a legend by slotting a modified inline six-cylinder engine sourced from the M1 into their beautifully styled 6-series coupé. Dubbed the M6, this sat at the top of the pecking order of the BMW range and proved to be a big success for the company.
At its time, the M6 was the second-fastest BMW ever built behind the M1, topping out at over 250 km/h. Along with its stunning performance, the M6 was outfitted with all the luxury accoutrements that BMW’s customers had become accustomed to, making it the perfect car for extended road trips, crossing continents in leaps and bounds at high speed.
Delivered new to Japan and finished in subtle BMW Diamantschwarz metallic over a grey leather interior, this M6 remained in Japan until mid-2016 when it was purchased by the consignor and imported to Switzerland to be included in his spectacular collection of BMWs. Showing just under 38,300 km on its odometer, this would be a wonderful example to drive and enjoy of what was then BMW’s ultimate driving machine.
