V10 hero model

In a feature on the first of the M6 series, we noted: "A mere four years after the M1 came the M635 CSi, introduced at the 1983 Frankfurt Motorshow.

"The M635 CSI, or M6 as it was marketed in North America and Japan, was the pinnacle of the E24 coupe range and a genuine Grand Tourer in every sense.

"Iconic BMW designer Paul Bracq was responsible for the sublime body shape and further developed the driver-facing dash giving the E24 a unique interior look and ambience." That car featured a 24-valve 3.5lt straight six with five-speed manual transmission.

Roll around to 2005 and BMW reintroduces the M6 badge after a very long lay-off (since 1989). We’re now talking of the E63/64 generation, with exterior design by Karl Elmitt under the management of Chris Bangle.

The engine is a 5.0lt S85 V10 with 7-speed SMG (automated manual) in most markets and a 6-speed manual option offered in the USA.

This example claims 42,000 on the odo and is with John Conroy Classic Cars in Brisbane, priced at $59,990
