By 1986, BMW’s high-performance credentials had been thoroughly satisfied with such groundbreaking cars as the M1 and the 2002 Turbo, cementing the company’s reputation as a maker of driver’s cars. As the successor to the storied 3.0CSL, the M635CSi is a standard 6-Series on BMW Motorsport steroids. Lifting the M88 inline six from the aforementioned M1 supercar, the M635CSi is certainly no slouch. The motor is a highly developed high-performance unit good for 286 horsepower, an eyebrow-raising figure for a naturally-aspirated engine in that era of low-horsepower, emissions-controlled motors. Of course, as the top-flight BMW car (the M1 went out of production several years before), all of BMW’s luxury and comfort options were available—but first and foremost, the M635CSi was made to drive hard, with BMW Motorsport suspension tweaks and larger brakes. Able to sprint to 60 mph in six seconds flat (an impressive feat in the mid-1980s), the M635SCi also had the good taste to appear relatively stock to passersby, in stark contrast to the wild 3.0CSL “Batmobiles” of the 1970s—nothing was much different outside save a different front air dam and a couple of Motorsport badges. That’s a good thing, as the “E24” six series’ sharknosed proportions are an enduring reminder of an era where this big coupe was as much a status symbol as it was an amazing driver.
— Official description [1]

The 1986 BMW M635 CSi, abbreviated as BMW M6 '86, is a front-engined sports car by BMW that debuted in Forza Motorsport 4, and is featured in every subsequent Forza main title since Forza Motorsport 6, except for Forza Horizon 4.

Synopsis

The M635 CSi was a performance model tuned by BMW's M division but manufactured by BMW itself. Introduced as the most powerful model of the E24 chassis BMW 6 Series, the M635 CSi was powered by a 3.5 six-cylinder engine previously found in the BMW M1.[2]

The M635 CSi was rebadged as the BMW M6 in North America and ended production in 1989. The name of the latter was revived in 2005 with the second generation BMW 6 Series.
