BMW’s so called ‘New Class’ compact Saloons and Coupes manufactured between 1962 and 1975 quite simply saved the company from extinction. Introduced in 1965, the 2000C and 2000CS Coupes featured distinctive-looking Karmann-built bodies and luxurious interiors and, having set a trend, were superseded in 1968 by the first of the E9 Coupes – the 2800CS. The length and wheelbase of the newcomer were extended to accommodate the 2788cc straight-six engine from the E3 Saloon, and the nose of the Karmann monocoque body was restyled to echo that of its four-door sibling. The 170bhp of the new, silky smooth powerplant was sufficient to propel the handsome Coupe to 60mph in 8. 5 seconds and on to a top speed of a whisker under 130mph. The fully independent suspension was by MacPherson struts up front and semi-trailing arms at the rear. Braking was still by disc/ drums and the steering by a power-assisted ball and nut system. The 2800CS was supplanted by the 3. 0CS and 3. 0CSi in 1971, for which the engine was bored out to give a capacity of 2986cc. Credited with developing 200bhp and 200lbft of torque, the fuel-injected variant was reputedly capable of 0-60mph in 7. 5 seconds and 139mph. Interestingly, the 3. 0 CSi is rarer in RHD, manual transmission configuration than the 3. 0 CSL with just over 400 being made (between the ‘226’ and ‘435’ series).

Finished in the stunning combination of Fjord Blue metallic with Black leather upholstery, chassis 2265479 was first registered as ‘XPC 86N’ by Surrey Council on 3rd September 1974. Belonging to its last owner for the best part of twenty years, the BMW has since undergone a comprehensive refurbishment courtesy of the vendor’s professional bodyshop. Said to be in ‘superb overall’ condition, the result is surely one of the best on the market? Among the finest looking Coupes of the 1970s, the E9 is a true design classic. The BMW Club UK estimates that as few as 120 RHD 3. 0 CSi cars have survived to the present day. A notably smart example, ‘XPC 86N’ is offered for sale with V5C Registration Document, digital photos documenting its bare metal restoration and history file (the latter containing numerous receipts attesting to upkeep and expenditure over time).
