2016 card

From the back of the 2016 card:

Born: 1973 
Birthplace: Munich, Germany 
Designer: BMW
Specialty: Here's a legendary racer with a stellar records of track victories. With the "L" in CSL standling for "light," everything about this speed machine is light. Its entire body was constructed with lightness in mind and when you see this bad boy in action, it appears to race at the speed of light!

Trivia

For the 2016 First Edition release of this casting, the '73 BMW 3.0 CSL was released in the same colours as the BMW CSL that won the 1973 European Touring Car Championship (ETCC), but with a '68' on the doors and bonnet, not the '12' that appeared on the one raced in 1973.
