The 6 Series, spawned in 1976, only existed in one class previous to 2004, the E24, but had class-a-plenty to claim a place in motoring history and in the enthusiast heart as a fast-paced luxury Coupe performer. The new six series, due to be unleashed soon, promises not to disappoint.

Basic History & Specifications
The BMW 6 appeared in 1976, borrowing much in design and mechanics from the upcoming E23 7 series. Initially, it was available in either the 630CS, or the more powerful 633CSi. In 1978, the 635CSi joined the line-up and a year later, the 628CSi became available to tempt entry-level buyers. In 1983, the M635CSi, most notoriously, the 'M6', whose M-power engine was derived from the blitzly and very fast BMW M1 arrived. The M635CSi was a beast of 286bhp and capable of 0-60mph in 6.4 seconds. The the 628CSi was axed by BMW in 1988, with all 6s discontinued in 1989.
