Stunning BMW 3.0CS E9 on Air-Ride

Stunning BMW 3.0CS E9 on Air-Ride

Air-Ride E9 3.0 CS Stunning classic build. Just because a car’s obscure, that doesn’t make it untouchable. And anyone who has beef with the idea of modifying a rare classic would do well to take a lesson from Alexander Steffen: he built this menacing low-down cruiser to fulfil a long-held dream, and there are few stronger justifications than that… Words: Daniel Bevis Photos: Tony and Carmen Matthews.

Back in 1972, en route to picking up an early Production BMW 3.0 CSL E9, John received an offer that he had to refuse – much to his chagrin

Back in 1972, en route to picking up an early Production BMW 3.0 CSL E9, John received an offer that he had to refuse – much to his chagrin

The Insiders… The BMW 3.0 CSL E9 has always been one of my favourite road cars and I was astonished to see a pristine model for sale at Ј200k recently. I was fortunate enough to have one of the first left-hand-drive models to be delivered. The CSL handled beautifully on the road and on the track, well ahead of its competition. In 1972 I won the 6hr Touring Car race at the Nurburgring driving a Schnitzer 2.8CS with Rolf Stommolen, and I just loved the car. If a car handles well at the ’Ring it will handle well anywhere. When the CSL was announced later that year I knew I had to have one. Through various contacts I was able to secure an early production model, which I planned on picking up from Munich on Zoll plates. On the way there I stopped of in Cologne to see Michael Kranefuss, who’d taken over from Jochen Neerpasch as competition manager at Ford Germany after Jochen moved to BMW. Stuart Turner had suggested to Kranefuss that he take Gerry Birrell and myself on to drive the RS2600 Capris in 1973.
