Description

The BMW 3.0 CSi was the ultimate model of the E9-range. Equipped with a silky 3,0 litre straight six engine with Bosch D-Jetronic fuel injection producing 200 bhp, it was quite a fast and sporty four-seats GT. BMW built only 7935 units of this version with manual gearbox, which makes it quite a rare car. Finding one in good condition is a challenge, and we are proud to have one available now.

This example was delivered in 1973 in the fantastic and typical seventies colour of Ceylon Metallic. It suits the car really well, and the black leather interior is the perfect match. This 3.0 CSi was ordered with the optional metal sunroof, which makes it even more desirable. The car has been completely restored a couple of years ago, and is still in great condition. Driving this big BMW Coupé is still impressive, although it is almost 50 years old today. Further optional equipment are the electrical windows (front and rear) and beautiful Alpina rims in brand new condition. It is of course matching nrs and finished in the original colour combination. The car is registered on a Belgian numberplate, and is 100% ready to use.

The E9 range of BMW is becoming a sought after classic as it is the perfect blend of driving pleasure and style. This predecessor of the later 6-series was a milestone in the BMW history, and one of the founders of BMW's current premium brand status.
