The '73 BMW 3.0 CSL is a Racing variation of the BMW 3.0 Saloon (the E9 asit may also be called.)The BMW 3.0 CSL was a Euro-spec 3.0 CS with aluminum bodywork to shed some weight for better on-track performance, with the CSL variant about 440 pounds (200 kg) less than the standard 3.0 CS. The 'L' standing for "leicht", German for 'Lightweight'. The Hot Wheels is based off the CSL that won in the European Touring Car Championship (ETCC) and in the from 1975 through until 1979 ETT+CC. A mere 1,265 models of the 3.0 CSL rolled off the assembly line, with this rarity, one can cost upwards of $350,000 (~€305,000) to purchase one.

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!


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.
