The BMW 850 CSi was the factory’s flagship model in the mid-1990s. It featured the silky-smooth S70 V12 engine mated to a Getrag 6-speed manual transmission and was one of the first cars to offer drive-by-wire throttle control.

The M6 and M6 35CSi were nearly identical in specification but were labeled differently for marketing reasons. The M6 was the second-fastest BMW ever built at 158 mph — only the equally rare high-performance M1 coupe boasted a higher maximum speed. Although the factory did not release official production numbers, it is believed that 1,632 examples of the E24-series M6 were Read More
