BMW 3.0CS & 3.0CSi Coupe (1971-75)

The BMW 2800CS was replaced by the 3.0CS and 3.0CSi in 1971. The engine had been bored out to give a displacement of 2,986 cc (182.2 cu in), and was offered with a 9.0:1 compression ratio, twin carburettors, and 180 horsepower (130 kW) at 6000 revolutions per minute in the 3.0CS or a 9.5:1 compression ratio, Bosch D-Jetronic fuel injection, and 200 horsepower (150 kW) at 5500 revolutions per minute in the 3.0CSi. (wikipedia)

Approximately 8,359 examples of the stylish two-door 3.0CSi were built from 1971 through 1975. The car's fuel-injected 3.0-litre inline six produced 200 horsepower, enough giddyup to propel the CSi down the road at 225 kilometres per hour. (
