Frenchman Paul Bracq designed many great cars…but few are as affordable for the level of awesomeness as the E24 generation BMW 6-series. You get a big inline-6 in a sporty personal luxury coupe for the price of a piece of junk 15 year old minivan with 150k miles. I’m not saying this car is a good deal, no…I’m shouting at the top of my lungs that it is a STEAL! Find this 1981 BMW 633CSi offered for $8900 in Sacramento, CA via craigslist. Tip from FuelTruck. Happy Bracq Friday!

Find this 1984 BMW 633CSi here […]
The E24 generation BMW 6-series is just new enough to be comfortable as a daily driver, but not old enough to be considered a collectors item. It falls perfectly into the low priced Cool Car List that is scrupulously maintained at the Daily Turismo headquarters. Think of it like Top Gear’s Cool Wall, except everything […]
In 1976 the original BMW 6-series introduced to a gas crisis panicked world a new paradigm in Grand Touring (GT) luxury automobiles. GT cars have always been about style, speed, comfort and usability – roughly in that order – but the E24 6-series didn’t need to impress the world with decadent curves like an Aston […]
