Model history and curiosity
The BMW E24 acronym identifies the first generation of the 6 Series, a high-end car produced from 1976 to 1989 by the German car manufacturer BMW.
At the beginning of the seventies of the previous century, the E24 project was started, aimed at creating a high-end coupé that would replace the E9 range, now on the list since 1965 and no longer in step with the times. To evaluate more than one possible solution, the task of designing the new car was entrusted to two teams: one was that of Giugiaro, the well-known Italian designer, while the other team was that of the style center of the Bavarian company, managed at the time by Paul Bracq. In the end the proposal put forward by the latter prevailed, due to the incisiveness and elegance of the line.
At its debut, the E24 was available in European markets with two engines, consisting of the classic single-shaft inline 6-cylinder engines belonging to the M30 family:
-630 CS: 2986 cm³ engine, carburettor powered, with a power of 185 HP;
-633 CSi: 3210 cm³ engine, powered by electronic injection, with a power of 197 HP.
The gearbox offered as standard was a 4-speed manual gearbox (the well-known Getrag 262 which had already equipped the E9): alternatively, as already seen, it was possible to have a 3-speed automatic gearbox or a 5-speed manual sports gearbox (the new Getrag 265 with reverse clutches).
