I’m just going to keep rolling with the exceptional examples of older BMW M-cars I’ve been finding. Â 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. Â 286 bhp from a race-bred inline-6 sounds pretty damn good today, let alone a quarter-century ago. Â 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. Â White, notably the national racing color of Germany, makes 80s Bimmers seem even more proud. Â 27k miles is just mind-blowing, and I love that it has a carphone still. Â It is the epitome of what the M6 can be, and shames the modern E63/4 version. Â The main drawback is the price: $38,995 is a ton of money. Â 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. Â And thus, it’s mostly just a fun reminder of how awesome BMW styling, especially on the M cars, used to be.
