The Appeal

 
The BMW M6 lineage began back in 1983 with the M635CSi model of the E24. After a 16-year hiatus, the E63 6-series was introduced in 2005. Equipped with a powerful 5.0-litre V10 engine producing 507 horsepower, this is not a car for the faint-hearted, and its impressive performance capabilities guarantee a seriously exhilarating driving experience. 
 
Continuing its long-standing legacy of producing high performance vehicles, the E36 M6 incorporates advanced suspension technology, precise steering and a highly-tuned chassis, providing the driver with excellent handling and responsiveness. Couple this with its sleek design, which has aged extremely well, and luxurious interior, this is a car that has few equals on the road today. Purchased by the current owner as a long-awaited gift to himself, he searched the length of the country for the right model and finally found this one, which now reluctantly has to find a new home to help fund an extension. The car has only done approximately 1500 miles during his ownership, enjoying the occasional summers day outing.

The versatile M6 ticks so many boxes. Not only is a thrilling driving experience that is hard to match, but it’s also a very practical grand tourer, with a decent amount of space in the boot and comfortable seating for four passengers. Produced in limited numbers, these are always going to generate serious interest as their collectability is undeniable. To find one that has been looked after so well during its life and with such low mileage should be a treat for a great many potential bidders.

About Max Bids

The max bid process allows you to bid without any hassle.
Enter your maximum bid and we will then bid on your behalf to ensure you're the highest bidder - just enough to keep you in the lead and only up until your maximum.

Anti-sniping

C&C prevent auction snipers from bidding in the last seconds to win an auction.
Auctions are extended by 3-minutes if anyone bids within the last 2 minutes to allow other bidders to react and counter-bid.

Auto-bidding increments

  • If your maximum bid is equal to or below the reserve price, your maximum bid will be applied in full if you are the highest bidder.
  • If you are the highest bidder and place a maximum bid above the reserve, we will automatically put in the reserve as your first bid.
    • Once the reserve has been met, Car & Classic will make sure you are the highest bidder using only the bidding increments stated below.
    • We will keep you in the lead up until your maximum bid OR the increment closest to your maximum bid, providing your maximum bid is enough to cover the increment value.

Bid Amount Increment
£0 to £10,000 £100.00
£10,000 to £50,000 £250.00
£50,000 to £100,000 £500.00
£100,000+ £1000.00

Automatically outbid immediately

When you place a max bid and are outbid immediately that means that another bidder has placed a max bid limit which is higher than yours.
You can bid again and we will use our automatic bid system to try and get you as the highest bidder.

Matching max bids

When there are two max bids of the same value, the one placed first remains the lead bidder.

What are pre-bids?

A pre-bid means you’re able to place a bid before the official start of the auction.
You will be notified whether or not you are the highest bidder when the auction starts.

Problem with your bid

Bids are contractually binding. To help protect you, we have some rules in place if we think it's been mistyped. Please check and amend what you have entered.
