2007 BMW 650I Convertible


  • Rare 6-speed manual
  • 4.8-litre v8
  • Immaculate condition inside and out
  • Full BMW service history

The Appeal

Introduced at the 2003 IAA Frankfurt Motor Show, the E63 6-series was a welcome return after a considerable hiatus from its predecessor, the E24 6-series. The 650i is one of the more powerful variants available, and is possibly one of the smartest GT’s out there. The 4.8-litre V8’s acceleration from 0-60 in 5.6 seconds is impressive, but the acceleration continues, getting you to 100mph in 11 seconds, glued to the road, thanks to its highly-tuned chassis, providing that well needed handling and responsiveness. 
Not everyone was a fan of the new 6-series shape back in the day, scarily almost 20 years ago, but it appears to have stood the test of time rather well with its long sloping bonnet and sleek lines. There weren’t many fitted with a manual gearbox and the current owner originally spec’d this one out back in 2007 as the ultimate driving machine he had always wanted, opting for the full exclusive black leather cabin and the V8 engine coupled with the 6-speed gearbox. After enjoying it for 10 years, selling it was a decision he lived to regret, so much so that he hunted it down and bought it back last year.
The car has just been detailed, the front seats re-cushioned and the leather refurbished. Now due to age, his preference is for an automatic gearbox, so this one needs to find a new home, which given its rarity shouldn’t be difficult.

The Summary

While there are a few options if you’re searching for a V8 with a manual gearbox, they are very limited options indeed, and are likely to set you back considerable sums, assuming you can find them. Here is one such example in excellent condition, so good in fact that the owner bought it twice. 
It has been brought back to its very best with considerable sums spent to attend to the niggly details that might otherwise put you off – we talk of the refurbished leather, the immaculate wheels, and of course, the soft-top, smoothly retracting in seconds to provide you with not only a truly engaging driving experience, but one you can do in luxury and with the wind in your hair.

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.


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.
