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.
