An Iconic Classic: the BMW 3.0 CSL

The BMW 3.0 CSL is a legendary sports car produced from 1971 to 1975. Originally developed to boost sales and enrich BMW's racing history, this car quickly gained cult status. The CSL, which stands for “Coupé Sport Lightweight,” is based on the successful BMW E9. The car was developed under the guidance of the BMW Motorsport team and came with a 3.0-liter inline-six engine producing over 200 horsepower. The BMW 3.0 CSL was not only a leader in driving pleasure and performance but also a masterpiece of lightweight construction. Lightweight materials like aluminum and plastic components helped reduce the vehicle's weight to a minimum.
