Initially released as the 2800 CS model M30 six-cylinder engine with bodywork built by Karmann. The BMW E9 model range was produced from 1968 to 1975. The E9 was extremely successful having raced primarily in the European Touring Car Championship. In late 1971, the 2800CS was replaced by the 3.0 CS and 3.0 CSi.

This 2800 CS enjoyed long term California ownership prior to being consigned to the Gooding and Company, 2020 Amelia Island auction. Purchased at auction by Autosport Designs, it was sold immediately to a good client and friend of Autosport Designs. Always wanting to have slightly hot rodded CS with an automatic transmission, the previous owner had the following performed.

Work included: The supply and install of a rebuilt 1985 BMW 535 3.5 liter engine block and cylinder head, mated to its original type intake manifold and carburetor as well as a 633 CSI automatic transmission. A full service was performed, all filters, fluids, belts, hoses, update to electronic ignition system, new pump, new engine, transmission and differential mounts, new front and rear shock absorbers, transmission service, Brake system serviced throughout, Complete air conditioning service, New tires, Alignment, New carpeting and floor mats, Complete photo documented bare metal repaint and finally a full detailing and ceramic coasting.

An exceptional 2800CS in every way, it is offered for far less than the cost to create and restore.

Price: $86,500
