From 1974, the CSL also found in racing use.
The enlarged to 3.5-liter displacement 6 cylinders contributed over 440 hp and sprinted in 4 seconds from 0 to 100 km / h.
Big successes uncharted BMW, unfortunately, but they won to customers three races of the World Championship of 1976 (4 races were won by Porsche).

The model:
Wonderfully executed model from Minichamps. The spacers were perfectly reproduced, the mighty air intakes finely grated and applied the decals outstanding. The reproduction of the engine is a little masterpiece.

An anecdote:
Over a short period of 6Zylinder the CSL was tuned by turbocharging and engine settings to almost 700 hp. The top speed was more than 300 km / h.
However, these engines were in racing just too delicate, and the combined power could not be brought to the floor. A full acceleration on a straight line would have the engine turns over.
It is said that the Swedish racing driver Ronnie Peterson accelerated to 250 km / h, the wheels while still shooting through ..... A set of tires stopped all 64 kilometers!
