Without doubt, the Paul Bracq-designed E24 6-Series coupe remains one of the most charismatic BMW models. Developed into ultimate M635CSi specification by BMW’s “M” (Motorsport) division featuring a DOHC six-cylinder engine derived from the M1 supercar, the M635CSi debuted at Frankfurt in 1983. Best known as the M6, five distinct variations were built for specific markets. This original North American M6 (Model 5514) utilizes a Type S38 engine producing 256 hp with a front air dam, sport suspension, limited-slip differential, Michelin TRX tires, and alloy wheels standard.

Showing approximately 73,650 km (46,000 miles) with four owners from new including the consignor, this 1987 BMW M6 is certainly one of the finest examples available. Sold new in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, it features the rare factory-original Zinnoberrot (Cinnabar Red) over black leather color scheme, and benefits from fastidious care with regular maintenance and mileage duly recorded on the CARFAX Vehicle History Report and service records since the late 1980s. Understood to deliver an excellent driving experience, this M6 further benefits from a comprehensive mechanical overhaul performed in 2017 at a cost exceeding $13,000. Features include power front seats, power sunroof and windows, five-speed manual gearbox, air-conditioning, and AM/FM radio. Highly original and quite rare today, this exemplary M6 retains its original metric speedometer/odometer and includes its tool kit and handbooks.
