With its arrival at dealerships in 1976, the BMW 6 series is one of the fastest four-seat coupés available at the time. During its production run of over 13 years, the car remains at the forefront of technical progress, including intake manifold injection, modern electronics and purifying exhaust fumes using catalytic converters.
The Coupé is designed by the then Chief Designer Paul Bracq. This is why the BMW 6 series has a low belt line allowing for large side windows. The dynamic side line highlights the elegance stemming from clear lines and reduced proportions, while at the same time achieving incomparable dynamics. This image is underlined by the pointed front with the characteristic, raised double kidney.
From 1978 the BMW 635CSi accentuates the vehicle’s sporty character even more – with reinforced stabilizers and more powerful shock absorbers. In 1982 the BMW 6 series is re-engineered. In 1984 the BMW M635CSi appears on German roads and is the highest evolutionary stage of the four-seater sports coupé. Equipped with the BMW M88 engine, which is also used in the BMW M1, a reinforced 5-speed sports transmission, reworked chassis and more powerful braking system deliver the driving pleasure that M models have always had.
In 1987, the second model update ensures the headlights and engines are again state-of-the-art.
