When BMW engineers equipped the E24 6-Series coupe with the M1’s powerful straight six-cylinder engine, the new high-performance model was dubbed the M6.

Following a 20-year ownership, this M6 emerged incredibly well preserved and unmodified with only 38,000 original miles. This example carries all the factory-installed M equipment, including the five-speed manual gearbox, and has been exceptionally well maintained. The gray upholstery remains soft and supple, and the black exterior paint is believed by the consignor to be almost entirely original. The factory tags, decals, and plaques are all in place, the etched Sigla glass is original and correct, and the protective Cosmoline coating is intact over an immaculate undercarriage and engine bay. This M6 was loaded with a plethora of power accessories and still features its original 1988 radio and cassette player.

A recent inspection by a Texas-based marque specialist revealed that the attractive BBS wheels are fitted with proper metric-sized Michelin TRX tires, the M6 front air dam and rear lip spoiler are in excellent condition, and the original cadmium-zinc plating remains bright. This truly outstanding M6 is accompanied by CARFAX and AutoCheck Vehicle History Reports, the original owner’s manual in its leather folio, keys, tool kit, and emergency equipment. Beautifully preserved for over 30 years, this BMW will appeal to the marque enthusiast or “youngtimer” aficionado.
