1979 BMW 6 Series

The BMW E24 was the first of the BMW 6 Series coupes introduced in 1976. They served as a replacement for the CS and CSL range that helped BMW establish the brand during the mid-sixties. They set a new standard in performance, handling, and styling. Just like the prior 3.0 CSL, the 6-Series was very expensive. The 1979 633CSi 2-door, 4-passenger coupe had a base price of $26,770 which made it the most expensive in BMW's lineup. Power was from an overhead-cam six-cylinder engine which displaced 195.8 cubic-inches and offered 177 horsepower. Standard equipment included air conditioning, four-wheel independent suspension, four-wheel disc brakes, and center door locking.
