For some people it is one of the most desirable BMW coupés of all times: the “New Six” CS, internally called E9, which was presented in 1968. It was based on the New Class coupé (2000 C / 2000 CS), but featured a longer wheelbase and longer engine bay, as well as a front resembling the then-new E3 luxury sedans. While all of this contributed to giving the coupé a more elegant appearance, its choice of engines also helped to increase the appeal of the E9 as BMW’s top-of-the-range coupé: The M30 straight-6 cylinder engine was offered with originally 2.8, later 3.0 litres of capacity and a power output of up to 151 kW (206 hp), just like in the E3 sedans. The elegant body was built by Karmann at Osnabrück.
Unforgotten are the successes of the E9 on the racing track, where the lightweight version 3.0 CSL secured many victories. The cars had as of 1973 been given a bizarre-looking aerodynamic package which earned it the nickname “Batmobile”.
The E9 was discontinued in 1975 when it was replaced by the E24 “6-series”, but went on to dominate racing until 1979. With 30,546 units built, it had outsold its predecessors by far.
