The 1975 BMW 3.0L CSL E9 is a racing version of the BMW 3.0 CS which helped the Bavarian manufacturer to establish itself as a sportscar brand after scoring victories in races all over the world during the '70s. It was especially successful in the European Touring Car Championship, winning six championship titles between 1973 and 1979. It was also successful in the world’s most famous endurance races, scoring overall wins at Sebring 12 hours (1975), Daytona 24 hours (1976) and three class wins at 24h Le Mans (1973, 1974, 1977). Because the 3.0 CSL was conceived by BMW’s competition department, which was formally incorporated in 1972 as BMW Motorsport GmbH, it is therefore considered to be the first M Series model.
