ODOMETER
1972 BMW 3 Litre CSA

In the mid 1960s, BMW introduced a coupé based on their successful 2000 saloon with strikingly aggressive styling in a body built by German coach builders, Karmann.  This was the basis for the 1968 2800CS with a longer wheelbase and a 2.8-litre version of the company's new six-cylinder engine. These cars established BMW as legitimate claimants to mass production and successful sales figures, with the "new" six-cylinder range encroaching into Mercedes and Jaguar territory. By 1971, this range had been joined by a very much improved car, the 3.0CS, still wearing the Karmann built body but powered by the latest 180bhp 3-litre engine and with a reworked chassis and 4-wheel disc brakes.  This was, of course, the basis for the now legendary CSL 'homologation special' that was to gain BMW much publicity on the saloon racing circuits of Europe.  Now quite a rarity, the 3.0CS outnumbered the CSL in production by more than 10:1 but the survival rate of the latter has undoubtedly been greater. In the year of this example's production, 1972, only 1,215 were produced and as total CSA production worldwide numbered a paltry 3,667, as clean an example as that offered here is a definite rarity.
Having been owned by just one owner for the vast majority of it's life, some 16 years in fact, and coming to auction direct from a refurbishment and service at a BMW specialist, this car is a stylish, powerful and attractive proposition for the enthusiastic collector looking for something a little out of the ordinary and, of course, benefitting from the dispensation of "Historic Rate" (free) Road Fund Licence! A value for money Classic that can only appreciate over time.
