Both are low-mileage, ultra-clean examples.

Raleigh Classic Car Auctions has two classic BMW M6s crossing the auction block one right after the other on Saturday, December 7. The 1988 BMW M6 has only been with two owners and boasts a mere 13,898 miles. While that’s certainly impressive, keep in mind the 1987 BMW M6 also has only had two owners, plus there are just 10,054 miles on the odometer. The question is, which one would you want to put in your garage?

The current owner of the 1987 BMW M6 has had the car for the past 23 years. It wears the original black paint, which shines up spectacularly well. You’ll find all the factory exterior trimmings in place, including the badging and wheels.

In addition, the Lotus/white interior is free of stains and obvious signs of damage, indicating this car has lived a pampered life. Among the standard and optional equipment is power seats/windows/locks, cassette player, and air conditioning.
