In 1972 BMW introduced the 3.0 CSL as a homologation special car built to make the racing version eligible for participating in the European Touring Car Championship. Three years later, the racing beast won the 12 Hours of Sebring in the US, while 3.0 CSLs won the ETCC in 1973 and in every year from 1975 to 1979.
From March 7 to 9 the car shined again, this time during the 2014 Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance, winning Best-in-Class title. The machine was joined by a number of other cool BMW cars, such as the 1973 European Sedan Championship Group 2 winner and the 1975 BMW Art Car, hand painted by Alexander Calder.
