The car designated as E3 was a luxury-class model from BMW, which appeared on the market in autumn 1968. The six-cylinder vehicles were the successors to the “Baroque Angel” with a V8 engine, which was discontinued in 1964.
The E3 was also the first vehicle from BMW with the works code designation E and was to compete against the S-Class from Mercedes-Benz W 108, W 109 and W 116.
The mixture was initially prepared in two register carburetors. In 1971 the BMW 3.0 S followed with a higher engine output thanks to more displacement. The range of mixture preparations in the BMW 3.0 Si has been supplemented by an intake manifold injection. The radiator grille from 1971 was matt black instead of chrome-plated, the rear lights got a different division of the light chambers, and additional trim strips were introduced, which were placed on the fold at the height of the belt line and continued over the trunk lid on the models with larger displacement.
