The BMW E9 is a two-door coupe that was produced by BMW from 1968 to 1975. It was designed by BMW’s chief designer Wilhelm Hofmeister and was intended to replace the BMW 2000 CS. The E9 was available in two models: the 2800 CS and the 3.0 CS.
The 2800 CS was introduced in 1968 and was powered by a 2.8-liter inline-six engine that produced 170 horsepower. The 3.0 CS was introduced in 1971 and featured a larger 3.0-liter inline-six engine that produced 180 horsepower.
The E9 was known for its sleek and stylish design, with a long hood and short deck profile. It also featured a unique “Hofmeister kink” in the rear window design that has since become a signature element of BMW’s design language.
In addition to its stylish design, the E9 was also a capable performer. It was praised for its handling and agility, and was a popular choice for touring car racing in the 1970s.
Today, the BMW E9 is a sought-after classic car and is highly valued by collectors and enthusiasts alike.
