"The Ultimate Driving Machine"
Some might wonder just how BMW got its reputation for being the Ultimate Driving Machine. While BMW started building cars in the late 1930’s, it didn’t really gain a reputation above and beyond the competition until cars like this 1972 3.0 CSL were released to the public. This car is hailed as being “This was the first production version of the car that BMW Motorsport and Alpina had developed for the European Touring Car Championship—which the CSL would define and dominate for most of the 1970s”. It’s a shining example of “race on Sunday, sell on Monday”.
Today’s M cars follow the same example with the 3.0 CSL’s spiritual successor, the M8 Competition, being capable of 0 to 60 in 2.8 seconds and also racing as the M8 GTE in sportscar racing series around the world.
