E24 M6 chase in Lethal Weapon 2

Post by Sixracer1 » Sun Jun 20, 2021 2:49 am

Continuing my series of watching my favorite 80s cop movies (courtesy HBO Go) I started Lethal Weapon 2 tonight (after enjoying the Beverly Hills Cop series). It seems I had completely forgotten the South African drug dealer in the opening chase scene drives a cherry 1987 M6. While barely able to evade the infamous pair in Murtaugh’s wife’s station wagon mayhem ensues.

Here is a clip:

This car chase scene is what triggered my love affair with the E24 M6. In all other movies the car engine sounds get dubbed in with something else. In LW2, you heard the true M6 exhaust note. I thought that was the most impressively melodious exhaust tone I had heard, and decided that one day I would own that exotic car.

It is good that the M6 did not sustain any damage, as far as I could see. Nice compared to some of the promotional videos that BMW has produced.

Very nice! Didn't remember that a E24 was used in this movie.

Very impressive sound indeed Jose! :D
