Mechanically similar to the 5-series saloons and styled by Karmann like the preceding 3.0 CS/CSi, BMW's 6-Series coupé debuted in 1976. The handsome newcomer was similarly well specified, featuring all-independent suspension, four-wheel disc brakes, and power-assisted steering as standard. Commencing with the 3.0-litre 630 and 3.3-litre 633, the range was supplemented in 1978 by the 635 CSi, which would enjoy a production run lasting into the 1990s, periodically up-dated in line with its sister models. For this ultimate expression of the line, BMW fitted its luxury coupé with a big-bore, short-stroke, race-developed, 3.5-litre engine producing 218bhp, an output good enough to endow the fully equipped 635 CSi with performance on a par with that of the lightweight 3.0 CSL. A deep chin spoiler and boot spoiler outwardly distinguished the new model from its predecessors, contributing significantly to stability at high speeds. Even today, some 40 years on, these big BMW coupés have enormous presence, and with a 0-60mph time of around 7.0 seconds and a top speed of 140mph in the case of the 635 CSi, are not slow by any standards.
This 635 CSi has been registered to the vendor since 12th January 1983. Bought by him from his company on 4th November 1993, it has effectively had only one owner from new. It should be noted that the instrument panel was replaced at around 65,000 miles following the odometer's failure, and that the estimated mileage from new is circa 74,000. MoT'd to May 2022, the car is offered with a V5C document and a history file.
