BMW M635 CSI SPECIFICATIONS
what makes this car special?
The E24 was the first generation of BMW’s 6 series grand tourer coupe line that was produced from 1976 and ended production in 1989, making it BMW’s longest lasting series model lineup.
The BMW M635 CSI was unveiled at the Frankfurt Motor Show in 1983 and is the first official BMW M6 model. It was designed as a two door, four-seater coupe that you could use as a practical sports coupe.
It had a very successful racing history with victories in the 1984 and 1985 Nurburgring 24-hour endurance races as well as picking up titles in the Japanese and Australian touring car championships in race spec versions of the E24 6 series.
The iconic “Sharknose” design was penned by Paul Bracq, a French automobile designer who was also involved in the design of the Mercedes Benz W115 and the W113 SL series.
Upgrades over the standard BMW 635 include:
- M88/3 3.5 liter straight 6 engine first used in the BMW M1 Supercar
- reinforced the 5 speed transmission
- revised chassis
- limited slip differential
- reinforced stabilizers
- tighter shock absorbers
- more powerful brake system
- The battery was also moved to the rear end of the car to improve traction as well as weight distribution.
This is a low mileage South African delivered example in well preserved condition. Only four official South African market examples are believed to have been delivered and this car was purchased in Cape Town in 1985
