BMW M6


BMW M6

BMW's top 6-series model, the 635CSi, was a looker and performer when it was launched in 1983. Using that car as a basis, BMW's Motorsport division revamped it and produced the M6, also known as the M635CSi throughout Europe. Underneath the suspension was re-calibrated with Bilstein gas shocks, stiffer springs and anti-roll bars. A lower ride-height increased stability in corners and a ii' Located battery (to the trunk) helped weight distribution. The 24-valve engine, taken from the defunct Ml supercar, used a light-alloy head with central spark plugs for maximum combustion power. MacPherson struts and a multi-link rear kepi the handling predictable, while a close-ratio transmission kept the engine in the power band. Bringing the most powerful BMW of the 1980s down in speed was the job of 11-inch (280mm) discs. Inside the car had air-con, on-board computer and leather.
