Comments:
The third 3.2-liter CSL produced and likely the oldest surviving one (the first two were test cars). It was one of the cars on display at the Aschheim test track in August 73, for the introduction of the 1974 range to the Press. In some press articles it was shown with Alpina wheels and a Petri steering wheel, in others with prototype Mahle wheels and a Motorsport-Ati steering wheel. This car was also the winged CSL used for the B/W pictures of the IAA 73 press kit

Owners:

  1. 1994->today: Marc E (Switzerland): acquisition at a giveaway price. Nothing happened since 1994, it was just stored in dry places. Restoration is expected to start soon.
  2. 1990 or 1991-> 1994: changed hands several times but it was never road registered again. All the successive owners were body repair workshops and used-car dealers, which probably used the car on trade plates occasionally. In July 1994 the last seller, a Garage in Solothurn, wanted to get rid of the car at any price.
  3. 1977->1990 or 1991: Roland Jenny, Switzerland.. Roland tried to sell it on several occasions. A possible reason why the car did not attract a new owner was that 2275489 had been relooked (probably in 1977 already) and it looked pretty strange. It was repainted Alpin-weiss, with non-original black stripes, with protective mouldings on the sides, with Ronal "Kleeblatt" wheels and with headrests in the back.
  4. 1974/Feb 1975: BMW sold the car to Hans Biermann, an entrepreneur living in the Black Forest region. Now registered TUT-S5, it wore the prototype Mahle wheels. It was raced locally
  5. Delivered on Friday the 13th of July to BMW's Sales and Marketing division and fitted with the registration plate number M-YM313. It was used for the famous black and white photos included with the 1973 IAA press kit, and was also one of the cars on display at the BMW test track in 8/73 (for the introduction of the 1974 BMW range to the press)
  6. Production: July 1973
