80s bahn-storming Bavarian in great condition and very low mileage

For years it seems, prices fetched for tidy E24 coupes were markedly undervalued – though that has changed quite significantly over the past two years.

Arguably BMW’s best execution of the iconic ‘sharknose’ design, the E24’s slick silhouette was penned by Paul Bracq – the same man responsible for the incredibly desirable ‘Pagoda Roof’ Benz SL.

The GT Coupe was available as a 2.8lt, 3.0lt and a 3.5lt – mostly found with a four-speed auto. Rare manual examples do exist, with four-speeds available in early cars, then later available with a dogleg and conventional five-speed manual.

While designed to effortlessly eat miles on the highway, they even had some local motorsport provenance with Jim Richards steering the handsome 635 coupe to the top of the Touring Car Championship in 1985.

Apart from the M1-powered M6, the 635CSI was the highest-spec available, yielding around 220hp from the 3.5lt two-valve inline-six.

This 1983 BMW E24 635CSI presents very well in original paintwork and with just 38,526 miles indicated on the odometer.

The blue leather interior also looks original and very well-kept.

The car is based in South Australia and is listed for $49,900.
