A pristine example of a rare Limited Edition

•    One of just 181 Motorsport Editions produced for the UK •    Finished in Macau Blue Metallic with Lotus White Nappa leather•    All the standard performance features of the M635 + a massive spec   •    On the original M-sport cross-spoke alloys/correct Michelin TRX tyres•    Once the property of rock legend, Jay Kay of Jamiroquai•    Full BMW/specialist service history with 25 stamps in the book

Offered here is a pristine example of BMW’s 635csi coupe finished in Macau Blue Metallic (Code 250) with Lotus White Nappa leather (Code 0199). It is one of just one hundred and eighty-one Motorsport Editions produced for the UK and only available in three bespoke colour combinations with Macau Blue being the rarest. It was originally supplied new by Quadrifoglio BMW of Southampton to a Lyndhurst-based lady owner who enjoyed the 635csi for almost its entire mileage. In December 2011, the car was sold to its second owner, a certain rock legend, Jay Kay of Jamiroquai with only 46,000 miles on the clock and subsequently, in October 2015, was purchased by a BMW collector with the mileage at only 49,600.

These cars were equipped with all the standard performance features of the M635 Highline model  and additionally, the 'Motorsport'-spec cars boasted Shadowline exterior trim, Electric sunroof, Highline equipment, Rear-seat head restraints, Tri-colour M-sport labels, Graduated tinted screen, Memory electric seats, Air conditioning, Electric mirrors, Headlight wipers, Rear spoiler, Leather trimmed steering wheel, and a rear window blind. The interior was fabulous and included hand-stitched Nappa leather on the seats, door panels, centre console, glove box, roof lining, sun visors, door pillars, upper door trim, and dashboard. The Motorsport 635 was rumoured to have an additional few horsepower (up to 292bhp) which may well be to compensate for all the additional trim.

This lovely example remains fitted with its original Blaupunkt Montreux RDR49 stereo and fire extinguisher and sits on the original M-sport cross-spoke alloys shod in the correct Michelin TRX tyres.  The owner's manuals are absolutely complete with every piece of literature required at the point of delivery and it has a full BMW/Specialist service history with twenty-five stamps in the book. Generously, our vendor is leaving the very appropriate registration, BMW 635F, with the car.

Epitomising style and mechanical prowess when they arrived on the motoring scene in 1976 these beautiful coupes will always stand the test of time and the ability to ‘wow’ anywhere.
