DESCRIPTION

Launched in 1968, the BMW E9 Coupé was one of the most handsome cars ever to roll from the Munich factory. Sleek and shark-like, it had a wonderfully elegant and airy cockpit with slim windscreen pillars, a large glass area, and a beautifully restrained wooden dash. Initially powered by a 2.8-litre straight six, this was replaced by a 3-litre unit in 1971 that produced 180bhp on Solex carbs, later 200bhp with Bosch fuel injection which gave it a top speed of 140mph.

The E9 platform, particularly the 3.0CSL lightweight homologation special, was very successful in racing, especially in the European Touring Car Championship and the German DRM series which helped to establish BMW's status as a sporty driver's car. Only 30,546 E9 Coupés were built in total before production came to an end in 1975.The left-hand drive, Fjord Blue example here was built in 1973 and is powered by a 3-Litre straight six producing 180bhp on Solex Carbs. It has covered an unwarranted 57,800 miles and the vendor describes its condition as “Good”. These cars are a rare sight on UK roads today.

Please Note : Park cannot be engaged on the automatic gearbox.
