1985 BMW M6 - Owned by Carl Jones


I have owned numerous exotic sports cars over the years, but this is by far my favorite. It is one of only 300 1985 BMW M6s imported into the United States. I am the second owner—I purchased it from the president of the BMW Car Club of America out of Utah.  The car was modified in California by BMW specialty tuner Steve Dinan.
 
With 385 horse power and 100-shot NOS, producing a total of 485 horse power, the $30,000 package includes Brembo brakes, 18-inch Budnik racing wheels, Bilstein coil-over suspension, a full roll cage and the motor is stroked to about 4.6 liters. My original plan was to take this car on the Gumball Rally Race from New York to L.A., but I am going to have to push it back a year or so—too many projects and too many project cars. My showroom is full of finished and unfinished projects.

People will often stop me to ask questions like, “What kind of car is that?” I get more responses from this car than any other car I own. It’s a great addition to my collection. Having rare and classic cars is also a great way for me to sell cars. Two years ago, I started Unlimited Auto Group (uagcars.com) specializing in selling classic and import cars. Most of the cars I drive around are cars that my shop has modified.
