The BMW 6 series, otherwise known as the BMW E24
is the last truly great BMW ever made. It has a coupé design (pronounced coopay), powered by the M30 or S88/S38 engine, a variant of the engine used in the BMW M1 (the second last truly great BMW ever made).
The car has extremely broad appeal, loved even by people who wouldn't normally consider themselves car enthusiasts. Some even hold the car in high regard from an artistic standpoint and a number were painted by artists such as Ernest Fuchs and Robert Rauschenberg. Diggory Venn even has written many great poems about them and his travels in the across the Australian outback.
It is a truly great car that a very select few get to appreciate ownership of.
Lowered E30 owner: eh bro check out that hectic Bimmer
Ferrari owner: show some respect, that's a BMW 6 series - it's truly the best car ever made.
Undeniably the best ever car built by BMW
. This coupe has a proven racing pedigree, having won at Bathurst
, against the Holden Commodore
Owners are typically intelligent people with a unique but admired sense of style.
owners aspire to owning one one day as these are the true cult car
, however their dreams are usually unfulfilled.
Looks best in zinnoberrot and "moneybags green".
Poor E30 owner: Hey, I just saw an E24!
Audi owner: OMG really? I've always wanted one, in zinnoberrot!
Race track in Germany modeled on the roads surrounding Canberra.
Opened in 1927, it is rumoured that Hitler commissioned the 20.81km track due to BMW, Porsche and Mercedes conducting all their high-speed testing at the 'Berra as it's affectionately known. When discovering this, Hitler annexed Austria, thinking that Canberra was in Austria, not Australia, then subsequently invaded Poland out of sheer spite.
As a gesture of goodwill, BMW hold a annual race in honour of Sir Arthur Canberra in which only BMW E24s are allowed to participate.
Nürburgring, second only to Canberra for it's high speed, tight radius bends
A Gaydrian is an emaciated dweller of the internet, prone to making wild and unsubstantiated claims of it's sexual prowess. Or just talks complete and utter nonsense. It also is quite happy to whore itself out to the cheapest bidder
Often goes by the name "Goatboy", "Rentboy" and "Dorothy"
(Gaydrian):alcohol is the shittest drug. But not when I'm drinking it
(Gaydrian):Hippies are OK but some of them are dicks
(Gaydrian):I need to pissss
(Gaydrian):The tatterd shreds of dignity she once had have just been burned into non-existance
(Gaydrian):So much to do, so little enthusiasm
(Gaydrian):Last night I dreamt
that somebaody loved me
no hope, no harm
just another false alarm
Last night i felt
real arms around me
no hope no harm
just another false alarm
So tell me how to lov ...
(Gaydrian): My soul is for sale. I'm not gonna lie, it's sullied and tainted, I'll sell it cheaply.
Ideally a 2 door BMW E30
, although any E30
is potentially a cult car - excluding the 325e of course.
Owners are often one-eyed, opinionated and usually too poor to own a newer car. Secretly they wish they own a Mercedes
or a BMW 6 series.
Person 1: maaate did you see that E30?
Person 2: yeah, it was a 318is - they're a cult car, you know!
The city of Canberra was settled in 1789 by Sir Arthur Canberra
while seeking out the perfect location for owners of the now legendary BMW 6 series
to live and drive their vehicles.
When designing the city, much thought was given to this superior vehicle, and there are E24
only lanes throughout the city in which to commute and thus avoid the hindrance of other less capable vehicles.
The city itself when seen from an aerial vantage point resembles a large race track, similar in concept to the Nürburgring
, though predating it by 130 years.
Canberra, there really is no better place in the world for owners of the BMW 6 series!
Sir Arthur Canberra, a 19th century pioneer and explorer, saw in the Limestone Plains a panorama worthy of the landscape cult that established colonial Australia. Sir Arthur recognised that rural landscapes and lifestyle are the 'real' Australia, with life in the metropolis both artificial and unhealthy.
Sir Arthur was guided to the region by idealism fused with practicality, and successfully bartered two shiny balls and a magic numbers machine with the local indigenous people to secure mining rights to all the land from Gungahlingadinga to Tugerrawangally Creek.
Canberra City is named after him
E24 owner: "I lift my glass to Sir Arthur Canberra, without whom this city with it's wide, E24 only lanes, would not exist."
