Gateway Classic Cars is proud to represent this beautiful example of a 1988 BMW M6! The BMW E24 is the first generation of BMW 6 Series range of grand touring cars, which was produced from January 1976 to 1989 and replaced the BMW E9 3.0 coupe. The E24 was produced solely in a 2-door coup body style. All models used petrol straight-six cylinder engines, with the majority of trims using a version of the BMW M30 engine family. The M635CSi is the first of the BMW M6 model line and is powered by the M88/3 straight-six engine. In North America, the vehicle is badged as “M6” and uses the less powerful BMW S38 engine. In 1987, North America and Japan received their equivalent of the M635CSi, called simply the M6. The main difference between the M6 and its European counterpart, is that the S38 engine is used instead of the M88. Compared with the M88, the S38 has a catalytic converter, the compression ratio reduced to 9.8:1, a double row timing chain, a shorter camshaft duration and a simplified exhaust manifold. The power output for the North American E24 M6 is 256 HP which is 30 HP less than the European M635CSi.
This particular example boast just over 89,000 miles and has clearly been kept up nicely! Finished in Swhwarz Black over recently recovered Grey Nappa Leather upholstery. This particular M6 sits on a set of aftermarket Ground Control Coil Overs, 17 inch ASA Wheels with newer tires, and sports a short throw shifter! Not only is this “shark nose” BMW an icon of its era, but it still continues to hold its own with over 250 HP produced by the 3.8 Liter high compression 6-Cylinder. If you are in the market for one of the better driving BMWs of the ’80s, this 1988 BMW M6 is a fine example!
