The E24 6-series holds a cult following that has become more and more vocal around the automotive world recently. Admired for the unmistakable landshark aesthetic, the best engineering BMW had to offer, and unadulterated (or is that adulterated?) 80s charm, loyal reader and commenter Bob brought to our attention an example that should have the cult of 6 screaming. Screaming at one another to buy it; at their wives to let them buy it; at their parents/bank/ATM to lend them the money. This Golden Shark is a truly spectacular 2-owner, 64k-mile beauty at a pleasing price.
The seller isn’t joking when he says it looks like it has 10k miles on it. He and the original owner confirm that this thing hasn’t been driven in the rain. Ever. It’s the nicest 6-series I’ve seen, inside and out, but isn’t priced like other “collectable” 80s BMWs these days. An E30 M3 or E28 M5 in this condition would go for well over $20k, yet this gold-chained beauty has a Buy-it-Now price of just $11,995. Maybe it’s the color, but if you’re going gaudy 80s, you might as well embrace some gold while you’re at it. It certainly isn’t the provenance or the condition; those are unparalleled. The growing E24 cult should snap this baby up as quickly as possible before they become like the huddle Gollums searching for a clean, reasonably priced M3.
Born on the 25th in 1985, it’s my golden birthday this year. This would be an appropriate present.
