This menacing looking M6 looks just right finished in Dolphin Metallic. The paintwork is in stunning order, emitting a deep shine all round and presenting virtually blemish free. The sills and arches are free from corrosion and all of the chrome work and window trims are in good condition. Both front and rear bumpers are free from any unsightly scuffs or dents. Smaller details, such as the pin stripes are present and correct and all the lights remain free from any cracks or moisture.

The cabin echos the fantastic condition of the exterior and is clean with no rips, tears or wear on the retro Houndstooth cloth seats. Being of Japanese specification, the interior of this M6 came with upgraded equipment in comparison to its European counterparts with electrically operated sunroof, electric front seats and a fixed rear centre console with integrated air conditioning as standard. None of the plastic trim has been damaged and all the controls work as they should.

Under the bonnet of this M6 you will find a beautifully clean engine bay housing the legendary S38 powerplant. This particular example is in fine order with all the components and ancillaries clean and leak free. The Getrag 5-speed manual gearbox feels smooth and precise pulling through the gears with ease.
