Here we have something rather special - an unmolested, cherished and magazine featured example of the thunderous M635 CSi.


One of just 524 right hand drive examples, the M635 CSi offers a host of upgrades over the already fantastic 635 CSi. Boasting a gorgeous 268bhp 24-valve, twin cam six cylinder M88 engine originally developed for the M1 supercar, 6-speed Getrag gearbox, uprated suspension, limited slip differential and more, the M635CSi was the Mac Daddy when launched.


Finished in Dolphin Grey with Anthracite Buffalo leather, this example has covered just 80,718 miles from new and has had only four previous owners, including photographer for the Royal family, David Hockney and many other famous names Godfrey Argent. The car was chosen for an article titled ‘M Power Legends’ for Classic Car Magazine in April 2009, where the car was featured among other fine examples of the M car breed.


The car boasts an enviable history file including glowing sentiments from renowned E24 specialists. These experts sold the car to the current enthusiast owner and looked after the car for the previous three owners and eulogise the car in a valuation document in 2017 stating ‘not just one of the very best M635s in the country but is also mechanically as close to new as possible’, and further described the car in their sales listing from 2017 as a fantastic example with a full and documented service history from new.


Prior to the current owner acquiring the car, over £7,000 was spent going through a ‘no expense spared program of age related, preventative work’ at 79,101 miles - approximately 1,600 miles ago. The car also benefits from an upgraded Brembo front brake package.


As one would expect the car presents superbly today and wants for nothing. We encourage any interested parties to view the car or request a video walkaround, and have no hesitation in adding to the praise heaped on this fine example.
