1972 BMW 3.0 CSi – the legend is alive
The right word for the 1972 BMW 3.0 CSi is a legend. This is a milestone in BMW's history since they have been making cars. As a very important symbol, the BMW 3.0 CSi model deserves a full restoration. The Classic Center's new Customer Workshop refurbished the famous model and handed back to its owner at BMW Welt.
"The successful restoration of the BMW 3.0 CSi shows that we are on the right track and that, together with our partners within the BMW Group network of facilities, we are capable of restoring vehicles to the highest quality standards and to individual customer specifications," commented Ralf Vierlein, Head of Sales and Aftersales at BMW Group Classic.
The customer wanted his BMW 3.0 CSi of 1972 transformed into a perfect state. He also asked for its four-speed manual gearbox to be converted into an automatic, something that had previously been done only with two prototypes of the BMW 3.0 CSi.
The car was fitted with an automatic transmission from a BMW 2.8 CS. The refit and complete overhaul of the vehicle required months of research and countless hours of manual labour. The result is amazing, the car looks like it just came out of the BMW factory.
