Full History

    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 and 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 Supercars. 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.

It is a privilege to be offering this very well known,  pre-Highline example for sale. Having been the centre piece of the Wilton Collection for the last few years. The owner felt it was time for a change to his display. We sold to him and prepared a stunning 35,000 mile M3 CSL to take the place of this 18,000 mile M635 CSI.  

 

This Diamond black, 3 owner M635 CSI is one of the lowest mileage and most original examples remaining. The car is unrestored, all original panels and with only 18,000 miles from new with supporting document file.  We at Classic Heroes have known of this car and its history for many years. 

 

In October 2017 the car featured in Classic & Sports Car with the current owner.
