First year for the U.S.-spec M6

For BMW enthusiasts, the E-24 generation 6-series is one of the marque’s most beloved models, introduced in 1976 to replace the outgoing 3.0 CS and CSL. In 1983, BMW unveiled the ultimate specification of the series, the M635CSi. Specially outfitted by the “M” division with the 3.4-liter DOCH six-cylinder engine of the legendary Ml, this was the ultimate high speed BMW of the decade and a performance and status icon of the 1980s. Only 1,767 examples were brought to North America, and they were named simply “M6” and fitted with the same uprated engine, 15-inch alloy wheels, larger front air dam, front brakes and rear differential as their European counterparts, as well as a Nappa leather interior.

Devotees rightly regard the M6 as one of the most sought-after collector cars in the BMW market.
