I’m just going to keep rolling with the exceptional examples of older BMW M-cars I’ve been finding. Though my personal tastes tend towards the hotted-up sedans and wagons (fast coupes are just so predictable), few grand tourers, 80s or not, match the sexiness of the E24 M6, aka M635CSi, aka landshark. 286 bhp from a race-bred inline-6 sounds pretty damn good today, let alone a quarter-century ago. A private collection has decided to sell this immaculate, 27k-mile example on MunichEvo, ready to turn some lucky buyer into the coolest German gangster around.
There’s a few nitpicky styling things I’d examine, i.e. immediate removal of the windshield banner if it’s still there, but overall this car is amazing. White, notably the national racing color of Germany, makes 80s Bimmers seem even more proud. 27k miles is just mind-blowing, and I love that it has a carphone still. It is the epitome of what the M6 can be, and shames the modern E63/4 version. The main drawback is the price: $38,995 is a ton of money. Yes, these cars are rare, and this is perhaps the best example out there, but it’d be much more attractive and reasonable closer to $30k, not 40. And thus, it’s mostly just a fun reminder of how awesome BMW styling, especially on the M cars, used to be.
