15k: MMMMMM: 1988 BMW M6

The E24 6-series was a luxury grand tourer from BMW with a gorgeous body designed by Paul Bracq and featured engineering supervision from Maximum Bob Lutz.  The M6 version added a modified inline six engine from the M1 and barring some sort of apocalypse or DOT ban on I6 engines, the original M6 will be a future collectible.  Find this 1988 BMW M6 for sale in San Carlos, CA for $16,688 via craigslist.  Tip from Kaibeezy.

This M6 is powered by a US spec version of the S38B35 DOHC straight six that puts 256 horsepower into a five speed manual transmission.  The S38 is a high strung and complex machine that uses six individual throttle bodies to meter air into the cylinders; with handbuilt bespoke complexity like that, even small jobs can be very pricey on the S38.
