Introduced in 1968, the first of BMW’s legendary E9 Coupes – the 2800CS – featured an extremely elegant, Karmann-built body, luxurious interior, fully independent suspension, disc/drum brakes and power steering. A true grand tourer, it was supplanted by the 3.0CS and 3.0CSi during 1971. In CS guise, the silky-smooth six-cylinder engine had an output of 180bhp, which was sufficient to rush the handsome four-seater from 0-60mph in 7.9 seconds and on to a top speed of over 120mph. Production ran from 1971 to 1975, during which a total of 4,455 CSs vacated the production line, all of which were equipped with left-hand drive.

Finished in Light Metallic Blue with Dark Blue velour upholstery, chassis 2212097 is understood to have spent most of its life in sunnier climes. Not UK road registered as ‘FAJ 133L’ until July 2018, the BMW is understood to be remarkably sound and original. Showing an unwarranted 37,000km (circa 23,200 miles) to its odometer, the 3.0 CS is described by the vendor as being in ‘excellent overall’ condition with regards to its factory-fitted engine, manual gearbox, electrical equipment, interior trim, bodywork and paintwork.
