Description

1988 BMW M6 COUPE:
--Cinnabar Red with Lotus White leather interior, Beige carpeting, 3.5 Liter Inline 6-cylinder, 5-Speed Manual Transmission, 34,000 Miles from new! Previous long-term collector ownership (since 1996), Exceptionally maintained, Highly original throughout.

Factory options include: Power front seats, Self-leveling rear suspension (replaced with Bilsteins – original suspension included), Sunshade for rear occupants and an 8-speaker premium sound system.

A superb example of the E24 6-Series coupes, this M6 is a true icon of BMW’s performance M cars. The first generation M6 was critically acclaimed throughout its lifespan for its elegant, aggressive "shark-nose" styling; yet another masterpiece of contemporary design by maestro Paul Bracq. Improvements over the base 6-Series cars were “M" badges on the front grille and rear decklid, body color side-view mirrors, a rear lip spoiler, larger front air dam, larger front brakes and a 10 mm lowered ride height. With their well-balanced inline 6-cylinder engines, the US M6s produced 256bhp with 243 lb-ft. of torque. In 1987, Road and Track advertised the M6 as being one of the 10 fastest cars in America with a top speed of 158mph.

This M6 in its rare color combination has been meticulously cared for since new as judged by its superb original condition presented and with all systems in working order as originally intended. Initially sold by JMK BMW in Springfield, NJ, this M6 has remained in the Northeast since new. It was sold to its most recent ownership in 1996 with only 11,000 miles and has been beloved ever since. As seen in its original condition today, this M6 has never seen inclement weather or involved in any incidents. The only items not original are an upgraded radio and newer Bilstein shocks and springs. The original rear load leveler suspension and original radio are included with this M6.

This M6 is complete with its original books, original tool kit, spare tire, jack and service records from new. Always serviced and well-kept regardless of use, this M6 is turn-key and in rare highly original condition. A recent road test attests to the car performing flawlessly in every way, and it is indeed ready for immediate fast grand-touring enjoyment.
