The legendary BMW 2000 CS from the 1960s

The BMW 2000 CS was built from 1965 to 1969 and marked a defining phase for the German car manufacturer BMW. This elegant coupe from the "New Class" series was designed by Wilhelm Hofmeister and was characterized by its distinctive "Hofmeister kink" on the C-pillar. The BMW 2000 CS served as the successor to the BMW 1800 and was a direct competitor to models like the Mercedes-Benz W111 and the Alfa Romeo 2000, with its sporty character and luxurious features. Under the hood was a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine producing 120 horsepower, giving the car a top speed of up to 185 km/h (115 mph). The technical sophistication of the BMW 2000 CS included front disc brakes and the innovative independent rear suspension, which was advanced for that time.
