History: Inspired by the limited production (603 built) Bertone designed and built BMW 3200CS, and developed directly from the oddball (covered headlight) 2000C/CS, the 3.0CS/CSI/CSL were the final and most popular of the series. The building of the bodies was subcontracted out to Karmann and little attention was paid to rust prevention. Consequently, the majority of these cars have been destroyed due to repair costs often far exceeding their value.
This particular car has had just 2 California owners from new. Total mileage to date is only 36,000 miles and this car is in completely original condition except for the substitution of a better performing ZF 5-Speed in place of the original automatic transmission.

Production: A total of 41,346 Coupes were built between 1965 and 1975. This figure includes the early 2000C/CS’ and 2.5CS covered headlight, 4 cylinder cars and the later 2800CS, 3.0Cs, 3.0CSI and 3.0CSL models. 10,088 3.0CS models were built.
