The History
In 1971 the already tested BMW 2800 CS was replaced by the new 3.0 CS and 3.0 CSI models which had a displacement increased to 2986 cm³, but, while the first maintained carburetor power and delivered 180 HP, the second fitted an injection mechanics coming to deliver well 200CV.
The 3.0 CSL (L stood for leicht, meaning light) adopted the same 180 HP carburetor engine as the CS and was recognizable by the chromed wheel arches, the thinner and matt black painted bumpers and the black side adhesive strip. The interior, apart from the sports seats in leather and fabric and the "racing" steering wheel, was identical to that of the normal versions.
When the CS was unveiled to the public, Road & Track magazine called the 3.0 "arguably the most sophisticated straight-six in the world". Although designed as a fast and comfortable touring car, the 3.0 CSL in the “Batmobile” version would prove to be one of the most successful racing coupes of all time. A special version of the 3.0 CSL was also homologated to participate in the European Touring Car Championship, greatly increasing BMW's reputation as a sports car manufacturer.

A total of 1,200 were built between 1971 and 1975.
