'A highly significant car in BMW's history, the M635Csi was the first to carry the famous "Motorsport" badge that has become synonymous with superlative performance and engineering.' – Supercar World.

Stylish, fast and well-engineered, the 635CSi enjoyed a production run lasting into the 1990s, being periodically up-dated in line with its sister models. BMW's 600-Series coupe debuted in 1976 and was mechanically similar to the 700-Series saloons, although introduced before them. Karmann styled like the preceding 3.0CS/CSi, the newcomer was similarly well-specified, featuring all-independent suspension, four-wheel disc brakes and power-assisted steering as standard. Brainchild of BMW's Motorsport department, the M635CSi version arrived in 1984. Its engine was a development of the M1 supercar's 3.5-litre, 24-valve, six-cylinder unit producing 286bhp, the increased power necessitating chassis improvements which included altered weight distribution, revised suspension, bigger brakes and a limited-slip differential. There was also a close-ratio five-speed gearbox (or four-speed multi-mode auto) and a more luxurious interior, while outwardly this ultimate 6-Series model was readily distinguishable by virtue of its 'M Technic' body kit. Performance was emphatically in the supercar league, the M635CSi being capable of reaching 100km/h in around 6 seconds on its way to a top speed in excess of 250km/h.

One of 5,855 examples built, this superb M635CSi was delivered new to Italy by BMW Italia SpA in Verona. The car later passed to its second owner in Italy, who kept the car at his holiday home and used it only infrequently, and subsequently returned home to Germany to the third and current owner. A car collector, the latter discovered the BMW in Italy in April 2014 and fell in love with its outstanding condition and originality. However, he has found little time to enjoy it and so the car is offered for sale. Presented in excellent condition, it has never been restored and has covered a mere 75,000 kilometres from new. Finished in Polaris Silver metallic with black buffalo leather interior, this quite exceptional M635CSi is offered with its original service book; sundry invoices for work carried out; German registration document and TüV papers.
