BMW M635 CSI
Introduced at the 1983 Frankfurt show, this was the 6-Series that received a heart transplant from BMW's M1 supercar. So underneath sat a 3.5-litre straight-six engine producing 286bhp, with enough power to hit a 159mph top speed. On launch, the M635 CSI cost 89,500 deutschmarks (remember those?). Using some wizardy on the Internet that translates the obsolete currency, that's around £46,000 in today's money (including VAT). Though we could be wrong.
