BMW E24 M635CSI
ust 524 right-hand-drive examples of the E24 M635 CSI were built between 1985 and 1989, and even today the M635 CSI offers an unrivalled blend of exclusivity, build quality, practicality and effortless continent crossing performance.
The touring capability of these superb coupes still impresses today. An excellently appointed cabin, with the trademark 70’ & 80’s BMW ‘acres of glass’ for first rate vision, a lavish array of creature comforts such as full leather, sports seats, air conditioning, sunroof, on-board computer and of course, four ‘proper’ seats and a commodious boot all add to the practicality, whilst the much-revered M88 3.5 litre, 24-valve, 286bhp engine delivers the excitement that BMW had demonstrated with the M1.
This sporting thoroughbred will sprint to sixty in six seconds and, in an awesome display of torque, pulls smoothly with increasing rapidity from 25mph to 158mph in fifth gear. Overtaking ability is equally impressive with 30-70mph taking a mere 5.5 seconds. A Getrag sport gearbox, limited slip differential, Bilstein gas-filled dampers, Motorsport springs, larger diameter roll bars, larger wheels and bigger ventilated discs with M1-spec 4-pot calipers are all testimony to a proud racing heritage, and the bespoke nature of this Garching product.
Still rated by journalists to this day as the finest and last true hand built, BMW Motorsport, competition bred, GT Supercar. The M635 must surely rank as the ultimate 80s GT car. A blend of classic GT styling, blindingly quick, satisfying on the twisty bits, effortlessly refined as a motorway mile-eater and just as easy to simply totter around to the supermarket.
Supplied new to L & C BMW in 1986 and registered by the dealership for the first five months of its life and driven less than 1,000 miles by the dealer chairman, Tim Hignett (who this week visited us and was reunited with this M635 CSI) as his company car. Then purchased by the first owner outside of BMW in October 1986 and financed by his company as his company car. The car is still owned by his son to this day.
We have been primarily responsible for the care of the glorious and very low mileage M635 CSI for both Father and Son for the last 23 years. The car remains in as new showroom condition. Never having lived out, the car is structurally immaculate and never restored. One of only 7-8 M635s that remain in this immaculate, low mileage condition.
