bmw 3.0 csi

E9. No, we haven't sunk your battleship. We just wanted to remind you of one the greatest BMW models ever. BMW wants to jog your memory, too, which is why it put together a short video documenting the E9's history, with a specific focus on the 3.0 CSi.

Approximately 8,359 examples of the stylish two-door were built from 1971 through 1975. The car's fuel-injected 3.0-liter inline six produced 200 horsepower, enough giddyup to propel the CSi down the road at 140 miles per hour. Click past the jump for a closer look at this BMW icon.
