THE M635CSi

Mechanically similar to the 700-Series saloons, but introduced before them, BMW's 600-Series coupe debuted in 1976. 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, which would be called the M6 when it came in the US, arrived in 1984. Its engine was a development of the M1 coupe's 3.5-liter, 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 and 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 60mph in around 6 seconds on its way to a top speed of 158mph.

THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

This Delphin Metallic over Beige leather M635CSi Coupe was purchased new by H.H. Sheikh Sultan Bin Khalifia Bin Zayed Al Nahayan of the United Arab Emirates. Shipped to the 19 year-old crown prince of Abu Dhabi by Lufthansa airfreight, the car was meticulously maintained by Hyden Leschel, a BMW factory technician assigned by the royal garage to care for their fleet. In early 1986, the car was purchased by its second owner, an American engineer working in the UAE who had sourced the car through a BMW in Abu Dhabi, who imported and homologated the car to the United States. The total purchase price, including importation and homologation came to a hefty $31,366.61.

The Bimmer would remain with its second owner for the next nearly 30 years, spending most of that time in sunny South Florida. Carefully used and well kept, the car acquired its 3rd and most recent owner in 2014 who has used the car sparingly. Supported with a couple of thick files of documentation from its days in the UAE all the way up to today and a clean CarFax, it is unmodified and complete with its hard-to-find stock Michelin TRX tires, books, jack, and factory installed fire extinguisher. Rarely seen in the US and rising in value and popularity, this low mileage, meticulously cared for and documented Bimmer is an excellent opportunity to acquire an example of the most expensive coupe BMW offered in 1984.
