As the first representative of BMW 6 series range of grand tourer cars, the E24 series is a very distinctive car directly one of the most iconic eras of european automotive history: this specific 630 cs features a clever mileage (only 74k km), its complete manufacturer’s literature and a bonanza of blue leather and upholstery. Maybe there’s still a chance for you to get the 4-door saloon car of your dreams!
As designed by Paul Bracq and unlike its predecessor, the E9, the body of the E24 was based on the previous 3.0 CS but sported gentle curves and smoother surfaces, as requested by former BMW automotive executive Bob Lutz.
When 1980 came, so did new technologies: the E24 was now fitted with a Bosch Motronic injection system. In fewer words, the first series 6 in history was a completely fascinating car which thrilled enthusiasts all over the world with its striking, muscular design and the driving sportiness of the stiffened chassis.
Thanks to Double-pivot McPherson struts front suspensions and Semi-trailing rear suspension arms, the handling was a pleasure, while braking power was granted by 4 ventilated discs.
Incoming in Lachs silver paint over blue leather interiors, this smart BMW features, among others, air conditioning, powered front windows, a period-correct Baker autoradio along with its original code card, dual-exhaust tips, 14" Style 32 Wheels over period-correct Radar tyres, Dimax classic, 195/70R14 for both front the rear.
While moving around this 630 cs, the seller notes scratches on the external chrome trims, the bumpers and the door handles, though the paint still appears to be in acceptable overall conditions, like the alloy wheels and tyres, which are reported to be in good working order. Also, this BMW still fits its original driving plate from Brescia, Italy.
The interiors are definitely more inspiring, as the cabin features seating surfaces trimmed in blue upholstery with a matching lower dashboard, door panel insert and blue floor mats with blue edging.
The four-spoke steering wheel appears to be period-correct, as the instrumentation, which includes a fine looking 240-km/h speedometer, a 7k-rpm tachometer and a five-digit odometer, which strikes 74058 km. Some minor signs of use are reported on the seat bolster and back surface.
Mechanically, the car underwent extensive (and expensive) engine overhauls in October, 2020, as reported in the documentation attached in the gallery, thus bringing the M30’s 185hp and 188 lb-ft of torque to their original glory.
By the underside, the car appears to have some slight signs of rust on the exhaust pipe but looks generally sound. The seller reports that the Getrag five-speed manual transmission still works without issues.
As shown here, this BMW 630 cs is offered for auction by its fourth and current owner, along with the entire manufacturer’ set of books, the original keys and the documentation proving the mechanical restorations.
