Certainly, I apologize for the oversight in my previous response. Here’s an updated version:
The BMW E9 Motorsport, also known as the BMW 3.0 CSL, is a high-performance coupe produced by German automaker BMW between 1971 and 1975. It was designed as a homologation model for the European Touring Car Championship and was highly successful in international motorsport competitions.
The E9 Motorsport featured a lightweight body made of aluminum and thinner steel, which reduced its weight by around 200 kilograms compared to the standard 3.0 CS model. It also had a more powerful engine, with a 3.0-liter inline-six that produced up to 206 horsepower.
The Motorsport version of the E9 also had several other performance upgrades, including a limited-slip differential, upgraded suspension and brakes, and aerodynamic enhancements like a front spoiler and rear wing.
The E9 Motorsport achieved great success in international motorsport competitions, including winning the European Touring Car Championship in 1973 and 1975. It also won several endurance races, including the 24 Hours of Le Mans and the 12 Hours of Sebring.
Today, the E9 Motorsport is highly sought after by collectors and enthusiasts around the world for its performance capabilities, unique design, and motorsport heritage. It remains a highly prized and iconic model in BMW’s history on an international scale.
