One of the most charismatic modern BMW models, the E24-generation M635CSi debuted at Frankfurt in 1983, courtesy of BMW’s M (Motorsport) division. Featuring a wet sump version of the M1 supercar’s 3.5-litre DOHC six-cylinder engine, the M635CSi was badged the M6 and built along five distinct, market-specific variations. Produced from November 1986 to September 1988, the Model 5514 M6 for North America was emission-compliant with its Type S38 engine producing 256 bhp. Just 1,767 were built. Delivering spectacular performance, exceptional handling, and luxurious yet purposeful accommodations, these potent and sophisticated machines still rank among the finest GT cars ever built by BMW.
This 1987 BMW M6 is a striking, well-maintained, and beautifully preserved example with just under 38,000 miles at time of cataloguing. It was sold new on January 21, 1988, by BMW dealer Wide World of Cars in Spring Valley, New York. The majority of its mileage was accumulated by 1994 as progressively documented in the service booklet, with the last stamped entry confirming a BMW dealer inspection performed at 34,502 miles on March 4, 1994. The M6 passed through another New York-based owner to the consignor in 2015, who had it serviced and maintained by an authorized BMW dealer, with receipts on file. Accompanied by books and tools, this 1987 BMW M6 is handsomely presented throughout and marks a great opportunity as one of the most sought-after and satisfying of all BMW performance models.
