Quite simply one of the best preserved and all original examples of a E24 coupe on the planet.

Cosmetically the vehicle is ready to show at a Concours Event. and mechanically the vehicle was recently sorted through by one of the top BMW M Series experts on the East Coast.

Pre-purchase inspections at my facility encouraged or at authorized BMW dealer.

There will be no disappointments with this M6.

The original Zinnoberrot Red  paint was professionally detailed to an extremely high standard and is well complimented with crystal clear original glass and bright anodized aluminum trim.
