This BMW 3.0 CS, 1979, has superpowers and a number of surprises in his top hat

BMW 3.0 CS is possibly one of the sports most beautiful ever created by BMW. At least it’s one of my favorites, and it is a pity that I never can afford, it is one of the classic BMW most appreciated. There is still a version more all listed with the surname CSL tailgate. That Joshua Stern has done in the united States can be regarded as a sin by some, a fantastic restomod on the part of others. Our friends at Petrolicious we have given kindly the pictures that accompany this post.

Under its hood beats a six-cylinder maximum power of over 100 HP/liter, which is sharp and pointed.

The history of this BMW 3.0 CS converted to specification CSL began with a 3.0 CS in a poor state, ready to be restored. We are ignorant of their starting conditions, but probably the engine was not profitable. Because what her new owner did was to install it in their guts the bestial engine S54 BMW M3 E46.

Only the rims Weds 16-inch might give a clue from the outside that we are not faced with a car of the 70s in its entirety. However, in authenticity and in spirit belongs to old times.

the interior of The BMW 3.0 CS has been restored to the full, and updated specification CSL. seats, sports instrumentation, sports steering wheel… everything is where it should be. Only the gear lever – from the M3 E46 – reminds us that under the skin, we are facing a different animal. In the work of restoration have involved several specialists, who have even created pieces of natural wood for the trim of the interior of the car. It is a work of the highest level.
