Paul Bracq was tasked with designing the E24 6-Series coupe and it remains one of the most charismatic of modern BMW designs. In 1983, the ultimate M635CSi speciation was introduced with the touch of BMW's 'M' (Motorsport) division and given a wet-sump version of the M1's 3.5-liter dual overhead cam six-cylinder engine. The M635CSi was introduced in 1983 at the Frankfurt Motor Show, and has become more commonly known as the 'M6'. It was produced in five distinct variations depending upon the destination market. The cars destined for the North American market (Model 5514) were emission compliant with the S38 engine offering 256 horsepower.

Production of the M5 spanned November 1986 through September of 1988. The body shells were built by Karmann at Osnabruck, Germany, with the cars completed at BMW's Dingolfing Works.

Other mechanical improvements bestowed upon the M6 were a front air dam, sport suspension, limited-slip differential, and Michelin TRX tires on alloy wheels. Options included power front seats, rear air-conditioning, and a central beverage chiller.

The M6 was capable of racing from zero-to-sixty in just 6.4 seconds with the top speed in the neighborhood of 160 mph.

This particular example is one of just 1,600 examples produced for the United States market from November 1986 through September of 1988. It was sold net to an oral surgeon in Knoxville, Tennessee, who retained it until August of 1993. The next owner was a Colorado-based BMW collector who purchased the car with just 19,058 miles on the odometer.

This M6 has its tool kit, original handbook, owner's manual, warranty card, brochures, a BMW cassette head cleaner, a flashlight, and a BMW Motorsport umbrella.
