City package: 1973 BMW 3.0 CSL


This model was born because the will to build a lighter car to participate in the Touring championship was born in the minds of BMW managers.


To do this, however, cars needed to be homologated for driving on the street, and so CSl was born, lighter than its CSI sister, not thanks to the use of aluminum but thanks to the use of thinner sheets. Beyond that, the CSL had some different features like the beautiful sports seats produced by Scheel and the Petri steering wheel.


This CSL seems to have only 72,000 original miles and has never been restored (but it has certainly received a nice polish, let’s be honest …), it also seems to be equipped with the City Package (never heard before) that would include: added power steering, roll bars, standard windscreen & side glass, rear defroster, undercoating, interior hood release, extra sound deadening, power rear side windows, tool kits, trunk lock, trunk carpet and headlight wipers/washers. And yet we thought that many of these were already included in the price. Find it for sale at $285,000 here in San Carlos, CA.
