When BMW released their M6 model in 1983, they did so with the intentions of creating a flashy performance car that continued the legacy of the popular M1. Few cars stood out like the BMW M6. Its shark-nose body style gave the car a sporty and menacing look that helped to make it one of the most recognizable BMW models of all time. Like previous model years, the 1988 BMW M6 was built with a modified version of the M88/3 engine, the same engine that powered the M1. This 3.5-liter inline six motor was able to put out 243 lb-ft of torque and 256 hp. European versions of the 1986 M6 were slightly stronger due to fewer restrictions. The M6 came with a five-speed manual transmission, an upgraded braking system from the M1, and attention-grabbing aluminum wheels.
The automobile was extremely popular with professional racers, and was able to win a number of different championships over the years. This boosted the M6s popularity and helped the car receive positive reviews from Car and Driver Magazine and Road and Track.
